Shot in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, when it was warm and not covered in snow !!
Here is another photo I shot this past fall at Clifty Falls State park near Madison Indiana. With this shot I wanted to try something a bit different with my photography and I think I got it with this one.
Usually Fall photography tends to consist of colorful and vividly striking images, but this one I wanted something a little more dark and foreboding, so I concentrated on just the trunks of the trees beneath the foliage and stayed away from the beautiful colors that grace the trees this time of year. I also added a slight tilt shift blur to the overall image to come up with I think is a pretty cool image.
So even if you go in into a shoot thinking you have to stick with what nature and all the other photographers are shooting try thinking a little outside of the box and go after that shot that can set you apart from all the other photographers in your area.
Thanks for taking the time stop by and take a look at my blog hope you have a wonderful weekend and get out and get that shot !!
Here is another shot from one of our recent snows, this shot came from Clifty Falls State Park near Madison Indiana, the south road that leads up from the Ohio River Valley into the park was shrouded in a cathedral of snow which made for a great image.
The wind was very still which left about 4 inches of wet snow clinging to all the tree branches the effect of this is really beautiful and makes for a great photograph. What I am looking for now is a bit of a thaw followed by heavy snow, this will fill up the creeks and waterfalls at Clifty and then with snow on top of that you can’t ask for better winter photographic opportunities, but I am sure I am asking for too much !!
As long as it doesn’t get too cold this is another one of my favorite times of the year to get out and shoot it’s when the thermometer starts dropping toward that zero mark is when I will pack it and just watch basketball in the warmth of my home lol !!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and when the next snow comes be sure to get out with your camera and find someplace to go for hike, you can come with some really beautiful images !!
OK although it has cooled down a bit I am still in need of a nice walk thru a cool environment, it doesn’t look like it will be coming outside real soon so I will just have to substitute a shot from a few winters ago.
This image came form Clifty Falls State Park near Madison Indiana, we had just received a nice accumulation of snow and the roads were clear enough for me to travel thru the park, it was just one of the many stream images I captured that day. You just can’t beat Clifty Falls for photography, the natural beauty of this park is unparalleled for this part of the country and is a must visit anytime you are in this area.
I purposely blurred the bottom and top part of this image just as a different look for this subject…not sure if I like it what do you think ?
Just thought I might share this with you since the weather has been so hot, it’s kinda nice to go back in time a bit and enjoy a cool moment for a change. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look !
I have a little time today to post so here it is, shot this in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, love the surreal feel in this and how it seems the stream travels on thru the fog.
This is the part of photography I miss, I love my portrait business here in Madison Indiana but hopefully after I retire from my job I will be able to make more time for this part of my work. As for the coaching part Lord only knows how long I can take that part of my life, great kids and extremely talented but they can really be frustrating at times lol !!
Been hoping for a little snow this year, lots of rain and storms but no snow, of course when we get closer to the wildflower season I am sure it will get a lot colder with a ton of snow…never fails !!
Hope you enjoy the image and thanks again for stopping by and taking a look, and make sure you click on the image for best result.
