Stream Photography

Here are a couple shots from a recent trip to the Smoky National Park that weren’t wildflowers if you can believe that, really I do shoot things other than wildflowers, you got to shoot a variety of things to keep your photography from getting too stale lol !!

I shot both of these steam images in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park which is one of my favorite areas to work. I started with a large are a of the stream showing the environment around it and the flow of the water. Then in my next image I captured just a small area of the stream and converted it to black and white to show it in it’s abstract form.

Even though I spent most of that day working around 100 feet of that stream I was able to capture many differing variations of the flow of the water and mood of the scene as well. Hope you enjoy the images and thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

  1. Great photos! It really is nice to take the time to ‘work’ an area and get to see, appreciate and photograph all its details. I love the black and white look on this.

  2. Great photos Bernie, I do the same thing…shoot the overall scene and then find the vignettes. Especially with water scenes because you can alter the look in so many ways. Well done!

  3. Must have been a still day. The long view is a beautiful contrast between the green trees and the flowing water below. The close up is a nice mini-landscape or minimalist photo as I learned a few months ago.

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog – it led me here! Your photography is stunning, there is something about the second shot… the water looks alive, a writhing tumbling mass; I do love black and white photographs.
