Before and After the Storm

“The Calm Before the Storm”

This post is a reminder to me that with the storm of life comes beauty and anticipation of a stunning day at Amelia Island coming soon.  Despite the COVID19 and all that entails, the beach and sunshine have no partnership with it.  Go to the beach and soak in the sunshine!

A respite from the snow and cold of winter, this image inspires us to “think” of warmer days and the delights of the ocean and the opportunities it brings to us to venture into wonderful places to photograph nature. This image along the waterways and salt marshes of Amelia Island was shot just as the clouds were rolling in for a major thunderstorm which created wonderful crisp-clear color and interesting cloud formations. As the threatening lighting and thunder were behind me, I was reminded that with beauty must also come danger and it is especially so in landscape, nature and wildlife photography.

After the Storm:  We return to the beautiful and restful Amelia Island, a place of beauty, refuge and respite, peaceful sunrise and sunsets and blue hour glory.

Snow Sunsets

“How beautiful and perfect is this couple together! Earth is kissed with snow and the sunset beams its approval in stunning colors of the rainbow in electronic hues! Climbing a mountain, withstanding freezing and windy temps make it all worthwhile when the delight of our eyes is such a sight! The tree lifts itself to the heavens for more snow kisses and glory to quench its thirst with promises of days to come of its natural beauty in leaf. If I could, I would put a swing there and swing until spring arrives.”_jacyjoypals

Crystal Lights of Festive Color

It’s that time again!!!! We are revisiting our posts of Christmas past as we prepare the new images for this year.  It is surely a beautiful time of the year of festive lights and joy!

It’s Christmastime and that is exciting for us as photographers as we tour resorts, wineries, Christmas light shows and more to capture the beauty of the season. On the JayJacy Photography blog we are featuring 25 Days of Beautiful Christmas Trees as it is, of course, one of our favorite subjects of Christmas photography and every year at every place we are dazzled by the artistic creations of the designers. This is a favorite from “The Greenbrier Resort” photoshoot.  The colors and lighting were magnificent.
