Waves Crashing Under the Pier https://www.troymarcyphotography.com/blog/2018/7/waves-crashing-under-the-pier-1 Waves Crashing Under the PierWaves Crashing Under the PierI was able to time the long exposure image for moments when the waves would crash against the columns of the pier, which created magnificent patterns of swirling water. The black and white treatment accentuated the water swirls and I love the way they contrast with the silhouette of pier.

Savannah Live Oaks https://www.troymarcyphotography.com/blog/2018/7/savannah-live-oaks Savannah Live OaksSavannah Live OaksOne of my favorite scenes in Savannah was the moss-covered live oak road leading to the Wormsloe Plantation. This gravel lane has been used for several movies and is such a beautiful site that no movies nor images can do it justice. If you are ever in Savannah and you appreciate nature, it is worth checking out. I could spend hours here with my camera.

Rocks on the Beach https://www.troymarcyphotography.com/blog/2018/7/rocks-on-the-beach Rocks on the BeachRocks on the BeachThis image was taken just after sunrise on Tybee Island Beach in Savannah, Georgia. The previous day these rocks were well out of the water but with the rising tide it offered a great opportunity to catch the waves crashing over the rocks. I was struck by the beauty of this spot as the rocks seemed to divide the scene into warmer colors on the left where the sun was rising and the cooler colors on the right. It was such a pleasing scene to the eyes and I thought this image demonstrated the moment I experienced that morning nicely. I used ND filters to help achieve the necessary shutter speed to blur the water. Enjoy!

Back-lit Eagle over Mississippi River Waters https://www.troymarcyphotography.com/blog/2018/2/back-lit-eagle-over-mississippi-river-waters Back-lit Eagle over Mississippi River WatersBack-lit Eagle over Mississippi River WatersSometimes I have to take what nature and lighting give me. This bald eagle was fishing to my right with the sun back-lighting the bird causing all detail of the bird to be in shadows. While this isn't ideal, it can still make for a nice silhouette. I really like the positioning of the eagle and how close the eagle is to the river waters.

Concealing the Catch https://www.troymarcyphotography.com/blog/2018/2/concealing-the-catch Concealing the CatchConcealing the CatchThis eagle flew directly over me with a fish. It is funny watching them fly as fast as they can back to a tree to eat before other eagles see they have something. They tuck that fish in under their tail feather and conceal it so they aren't pickpocketed by other eagles. Lets see if they Eagles can steal one away from the Patriots today in Superbowl LII.
