When the Summer starts to drag in Miami, my mind wanders to the mountains and my body soon follows. The Pisgah Forest in Western North Carolina is where we escaped to in early September. Heavy rains kept us in the tent throughout our first night in the back country, so we had dinner for breakfast while watching the sun rise behind the Blue Ridge Mountains; Baked beans, hard-boiled eggs and coffee.

Although the landscapes of WNC provide easy work for photographers, this particular trip proved to be a tough one filled with storm clouds and heavy fog. Luckily things cleared up long enough for this shot to take place. It would have been a shame to carry the camera equipment so far into the mountains only to keep it in the dry bag.

Camping in the Ten Thousand Islands by Miami Photographer Tom Clark

night landscape photography

South FL offers a small window of opportunity for photographers to stay the night out in the wilderness free from the wrath of mosquitoes and oppressive heat/humidity. To take advantage of this I headed out to do some camping and fishing with my father. In my opinion the ten thousand islands offers the best camping experience in Florida.

Just a short trip from Miami, this park offers starry skies, a primitive camping experience, and some of the best fishing I’ve experienced. The calm and secluded nature of the islands makes them perfect for nighttime landscape photography.
