Photography and assorted thoughts


Watching the water in the Smokies

Living in Front Range one of the things that you don’t get to see is a lush environment. But for my last major photo trip I went to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, where you do get to see it.

Roaring Fork

Roaring Fork

I think this was along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail, so it was literally just yards off the road. But it looks like something you could have photographed in the 1800s. Of course in those days, with the emulsions requiring so much light, that the water would have been even softer. The pictures would have probably been in black and white. Then again our modern lenses have so much more clarity.

Here I was enamored of the flow of water tumbling around the rock.


A few more meters down the road I came to this.

We ended spending about 45 minutes in this section of the park. We all had a great time exploring our individual vision.
One of the things you find at a workshop is that you can be standing right next to someone, and your shots look entirely different than their shots.
