The other evening I realized a storm was moving in and with it some very dramatic skies. There are few things I enjoy more than creating a nice, moody black & white image that includes dramatic skies. How could I resist? I grabbed my camera gear and headed out for Down East Carteret county with the idea of finding a skiff or boat tied out in one of the rivers or bays with the approaching storm in the background. I snapped a few shots at this location and jumped back in my vehicle as the downpour started. This is very much the image I had in mind as I headed out in front of the storm.
