I headed out a couple of days ago in search of a good night photo. I ended up in College Grove, where this beautiful church is. I’ve passed it before, so I’ve thought about a night shot. The problem was the street lights in front and to the side. I had to shoot from this angle to block the one on the side. Overall, I think it turned out pretty well. This is approximately 45 minutes worth of 30 second exposures, blended to show the motion of the stars.

The Nashville Skyline with stars and the full moon overhead. Don’t you wish this were possible? The night sky is amazing, I wish we could see more of it over the cities. This is, in fact, a composite created by merging several photos together. The night sky was photographed miles away from the city and then blended into the photo of the Nashville skyline to make an artistic version of Nashville at night.

Thursday Night Football in Nashville, unfortunately the Titans couldn’t pull out the win over the Colts at LP Field. On the plus side, the skies were great right before the game

Here’s another photo from my day trip to the Smokies. This is from the Newfound Gap Overlook on the way up to Clingmans Dome. I arrived just as the clouds were breaking a little and allowing beautiful morning light to stream through onto the mountains and valleys below.

This black bear cub was sticking his tongue out at the groups of people trying to get a photo. Please remember to keep your distance when you see black bears in Cades Cove or anywhere else. You are supposed to give them 50 yards and I saw many people much closer than that.
For some reason, shooting cascades is really tough for me. Finding the right composition does not come easy. I shot many cascades in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park that morning, several hours worth. And yet, I have only two to share. Once I would look at most of them on the computer screen, I didn’t like something about them. I guess I’ll just have to practice these more, and that means more trips to the mountains :)
Here is the other:
A single red leaf clings to a wet rock. The color in the water is reflected from the beautiful trees with golden leaves. A slightly long shutter speed was used to show motion in the water. Taken in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park
So this past Tuesday I went to the Smokies. I only had one day to devote to fall color in east Tennessee so I left my house at 3am in order to be in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by sunrise. I arrived at this vantage point around 30 minutes before sunrise. This shot encompasses 3 of my favorite things to photograph – East Tennessee, Sunrise, and Autumn
