Twisted Tree – Chattahoochee Nature Trail

I love this tree along the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area trail.  I’m usually running when back there so never have my camera and certainly not my tripod.  I took both out for a hike on Friday afternoon and got a picture of this twisted tree.

How I did it:

ISO 100
17mm
f/9.0
5 exposures 1/30 sec – 1/500 sec
Shot on Tripod
Processed in Photomatix Pro 5 & Lightroom

A look up Main Street in Rosemary Beach Florida.  The left side of the street is lined with restaurants, bars and shops including the Cowgirl Kitchen which has great Bloody Mary’s and Pina Colada’s.

Rosemary Beach Florida Town Hall

Rosemary Beach Town Hall

Last night I went for a bike ride to capture some night shots of Rosemary Beach.  This is the Town Hall and US Post Office on the coastal side of 30A.  The stars were amazing and show up well in this picture.  The image was shot with a Nikon D800 and 14-24mm f/2.8, 100 ISO, 5 frames between 1.3 seconds and 20 seconds.  It was processed using Photomatix and Lightroom.

Enjoy,

Harley Davidson Golf Cart

This is by far my favorite golf cart.  It’s a Harley Davidson golf cart with a center wheel and center steering.  It is located on the grounds of the Chastain Park Conservancy in Chastain Park.  Over the years I have hoped to see it restored, but today I’m coming to grips with it being more of a piece of art.

 

 

Peachtree Heights East Duck Pond

The Duck Pond in Peachtree Heights East is a popular gathering place for families in Buckhead.  It’s located at the corner of Lakeview and Demorest just off Peachtree Road.  This picture was taken on Parkside Drive looking west.  Below is another shot of the pond.

Summer at Camp Mac

Yesterday we took our oldest son Henry to Camp Mac where he will spend the next 10 days likely having the time of his life.  I took this picture off the back of his cabin.  I have several friends that saw it on Facebook and said it literally hasn’t changed in 30 years.  I thought it turned out pretty timeless myself.  It’s a 3 image HDR photo processed in Photomatix.
