Jockey’s Ridge State Park : A Study in Sand
Located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Jockey’s Ridge is the largest active sand dune system in the Eastern United States. From the middle of the sand, it’s easy to imagine yourself in the Sahara Desert. In these conditions, the sand is always changing and no two visits are the same. The shots in this set were made between February 2013 and February 2014.

Late February brought some teases of spring, such as this sunset. A thunderstorm passed during the afternoon giving way to a beautiful sunset sky!

Southern Snow | New Bern, North Carolina
On Tuesday, January 28 and into the wee hours of the morning, January 29, the south received a rare snow event. Here in New Bern and much of Eastern NC, we got a thick layer of sleet followed by a nice coating of snow. Naturally, I ventured out the morning after. Here are some shots:
I wouldn’t have made it out to shoot any of these if it weren’t for my friend Bruce and his trusty Jeep^ Thanks Bruce!!
February 2014 Desktop Wallpaper
After a January that featured two snow events here in Eastern NC, though one was not much like the other, February’s wallpaper features a snowy sunrise. I figure this isn’t a shot that I’ll have a chance to recreate any time soon, so it gets chosen as this past month’s favorite!
As always, it’s most appreciated when you share and comment on this post. It helps me track how many people actually use these things. I’ve been posting a free wallpaper each month for over two years now, and other than generic page views, I have no idea how many screens they’ve found a home on. Thanks for the support!
