Sitting at the house Thursday night I saw some dramatic clouds rolling in at sunset. I grabbed my kit and ran out the door and headed to Beavertail. I’ve been exploring the shoreline there for the last year or so looking for some fun non lighthouse locations and I’ve got a few I’m really enjoying […]
Went out to Castle Hill to watch the volvo boats come in last night. They were due around sunset but the wind was dying fast so I figured I’d go somewhere photogenic while waiting. Castle hill also has an added benefit of being able to see out to sea -vs- a much shorter view from […]
Made it out to Fort Wetherill for the first sunrise in a long time (ski season took over this winter in a great way!). Explored a new spot as well which is always fun. Sunrise was a bit of a bust with no clouds on the horizon but it was great to get out […]
Catching up on the blog again… I was behind and then I had/got to travel for work and fun on several weekends in a row and then the hard drive on the computer went down (didn’t lose anything important but I had to take 2 weeks to get everything running again)… So yeah, I’m finally […]
The SSD on my iMac crashed a few weeks ago now. The iMac originally came with a 256gb SSD and a 1TB internal HD for storage as well. This post is NOT about “adding” an SSD to a machine without one. This post IS about replacing your SSD if it goes bad… There are […]
Four two three four… What’s that? That’s how much vertical I was able to ski in one run Saturday. It’s also my personal record for single longest run ever for me, including when I lived out west. I was able to get up north for one last weekend of skiing with David Simms and David […]
It’s fun to look back at these pictures from January a month later… The last few pictures in this set are from our first snow or the “blizzard”. It seemed like a lot of snow then… But it’s a month later, it’s all still here, and it’s BURIED under about another foot or so of […]
Every year I sit down and make a “best of” post for my photography for the year. It’s been a great year and I’ve got a TON of images to choose from this year. Actually, I couldn’t narrow it down to just 12 so I’ve got a gallery at the bottom with ALL the highlight, […]
Well this is about as on time as you’ll see a PAD post from me!!! Happy new year everyone. We had a great December with lots of family get togethers and of course Christmas. The kids had an amazing time with Santa paying a visit to both of them. They were beyond excited. Enjoy.
I made it out for a last minute sunset tonight. I was actually running when I saw the sky beginning to look promising. I ran back home, grabbed my kit and drove out to beavertail just in time to catch an amazing light show.
Made it out to Beavertail this morning. The wind was howling but I wanted to shoot badly enough I didn’t let that stop me. It did however lead to a few soft shots thanks to the camera moving around a bit. It was still worth the effort as I was able to explore the west […]
We had an amazing end to November here in the Jacobsen house! Thursday was Thanksgiving where we enjoyed an amazing meal with family. Friday was Nikki’s 37th b-day where we enjoyed a second turkey feast with my parents and hers as well as our good friend Ruleo from Antigua. We also did some major “Black […]
Made it out to Beavertail tonight for a quick sunset shoot. We walked there earlier with the kids and I was spying on the awesome areas down on the water. Sunset lit up wonderfully for about ~5 minutes 20 minutes after the sun had actually set. Enjoy!
