So while I was in Nashville, I stopped by an old favorite place – Radnor Lake. It’s been almost a year since I was last able to visit. This was what greeted me Monday morning – just how I remembered it 😉
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
So I awoke to some awesome fog on Friday morning. Once I got the kids up and off to school, I grabbed the camera and headed out. Drove around and shot for an hour or so and then I came up on this scene right outside of Murfreesboro. Took a while to get the beautiful horse to pose just right 🙂

These photos are pretty fun to attempt. You’re never really sure how they will turn out and occasionally you end up with a beautiful piece of art. See the bottom of this post for more info on the technique used.
Here are a couple of my most recent attempts:
Here are a couple of older favorites as well:
The technique used to create these is pretty simple. Set the shutter to a fairly slow speed (0″3, 0″6, 1/6, 1/8 etc) and pan the camera when shooting. Practice with different shutter speeds, different panning speeds, panning directions, and of course different subjects until you get something you like.
Thanks for stopping by!
