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

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.

Ponte Vedra Palm Tree

This week our challenge was to come up with a shot showing the rule of 3rds.  This HDR image was taken this afternoon off the back of our house in Ponte Vedra.  It was forcast to rain all day…turned out to be a pretty awesome day.

Weekly Photo Challenge Week 44: Half

Halfway through blowing the leaves I had to stop and take this picture:

Drooling Oak Trees at Christ Church in St Simons

This past weekend I went down to St Simons Island GA for the GA/Fl football game.  Here are some pictures from the nearby Christ Church.  These trees are absolutely amazing and are one of my favorite things about visiting the Georgia coast.  This is what I like about living in the South…if someone wondered why.
