Landscape - Judy Royal Glenn Photography

Jesus is behind all I do as a photographer. I feel the Lord reveals Himself to me through His nature, and feel this is a gift that allows me to see the raw beauty of creation through His eyes. He even allowed me to photograph two miracles at once! To view this amazing photograph, go to my "About Judy" page.

My favorite subject to photograph is bears, but I also love to photograph all wildlife, flowers, and birds—especially hummingbirds:) I also created the Hummingbird Trail at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, I teach a class about hummingbirds and the trail, and I also lead Hummingbird Trail walks:)

Moonlit Christmas Tree on Driftwood Beach

I enjoyed light painting this tree during a full moon while on Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, Georgia.

Backstory:

The Lord blesses me in so many ways with my photography. I went to Jekyll Island, Georgia to photograph the almost full moon at moonrise on Driftwood beach. My goal was to photograph the moon rising between the driftwood on the beach.

I could not figure out how to light the driftwood and expose the moon properly.

I was on the beach alone and became a little worried when I saw a flashlight coming towards me. The Lord sent and an angel named Emory.

He is an awesome photographer that knows well how to photograph a combination of the stars, moon, and trees at night. His photographs of star trails and the driftwood are beautiful!

We used flashlights with red beams​ to light paint this tree during a long exposure. He "painted" one side while I "painted" the other. It was a lot of fun and I am thankful for his help!

Since the tree is painted in red, I decided to call it a Christmas tree.
