MOODY MONDAY
Yesterday was Monday, June 1. I've never been fond of Monday's but the availability to photograph a great sunrise will do a lot to pick up the spirits.
Made a quick jaunt to Vonore Fishing Pier yesterday to capture what seemed like the third or fourth day in a row of beautiful sunrises.
When I finished processing this one it was only appropriate to apply the Moody Monday preset (from +John G Moore's Classic Colour Presets) in Lightroom and low and behold it added a bit of punch that made the shot for me.

Way behind the barn
Sundown's gonna catch me
In my sweet baby's arms

Steve Miller Band - Behind The Barn...

Went back to my images from Friday morning's sunrise over at Kevin Taylor's barn. After editing images from Oconaluftee's sunrise from yesterday I almost forgot about the beautiful morning the day before.
This might be my favorite image that I've taken at this barn, which is one of my favorite places to quickly scamper to if I'm a bit short on time. Mr Taylor is extremely kind and has let me know that I can come and take pictures here when ever I can. With mornings like this one, it's hard not to come back time and again.

SHA-KON-O-HEY
Shakonohey is the word the Cherokee Indians used to describe the The Great Smoky Mountains. It means "Land of Blue Smoke" and describes the blue mist that seems to rise up from the mountains especially at sunrise.
This morning's sunrise at Oconaluftee Overlook took on a greater look of that mist once the sun crested the mountains and shined down on the valley. When this happened I changed lenses to the telephoto to pull those mountains in tight.

WAM BAM
Since school let out last week I've been able to get out a bit early and try to catch some sunrises before going into work in the mornings. Today was one of those days when I got out a bit later than actual sunrise but the cloud cover allowed me play catch up.
The only real light was along the horizon with the clouds and lake taking on a more monochrome look. A few scant sun rays shining down through the clouds mad for some great mood to the shot as well.
Using to +John G Moore's Classic Colour Lightroom preset "Wam Bam Thank You Mam" it added just a bit more Umphf to the image and the finishing touches as well.

LONG WEEKEND
At Yamaha, Memorial Day weekend marks the first weekend of our Loan Pool. This is when salaried employees get to use production level prototype boats for a fun weekend. It's a great perk.
Memorial Day weekend is not only the first week of loan pool, its one of most popular weekends of the summer with all the boats being used.
When I came into work Tuesday morning a couple of the boats were docked at the rear dock by our parking lot. The sunrise had some neat clouds and light so I couldn't resist using the docked boats in the foreground against that sunrise. Especially with a relatively calm cove.

OVERLOOKING
Couldn't help but post another image from Saturday's sunrise at Oconaluftee Overlook in the ‪#‎GSMNP‬. The scene at the overlook changed constantly as both the sun came up and the clouds moved through. Eventually the clouds caught the pink of the sunrise and so did the layers of mountains below.

OCONALUFTEE LONG EXPOSURE
The clouds were moving quite fast yesterday. A 30 second exposure caught a few of them dragging across the top of the mountains. They also reflected the magenta colors that the sunrise was casting at the time. #GSMNP

TOUGH DECISIONS
Life is full of tough decisions. The last few hours I've had to make a couple that, in my opinion, paid off.
In the last couple months, two or three times I've had the intention of getting up at a ridiculous hour on a Saturday or Sunday to catch sunrise at Clingman's Dome in the #GSMNP. Clingman's Dome is the tallest peak in the Smokies standing at 6644 feet. The parking area t...here has an unbelievable view and is aw inspiring at both sunrise & sunset. Each of these two or three times I've had the notion of rising at that ridiculous hour to travel to the dome, I instead chose to stay in bed and chose sleep instead.
Last night I once again felt the urge to get up at said ridiculous hour to make the trek to Clingman's Dome. At 3:00am this morning I was once again arguing with myself as whether to stay in bed or get up and get on the road to the park. Today, however, I made the decision to pry myself out of bed and make the drive to the Smokies.
Two hours later, at 5:25, I pulled into the Clingman's Dome parking area. The cloud cover there was very difficult to make out whether it would allow for a decent sunrise. Being at that altitude, its very easy for any clouds to cover up the view and completely block the sunrise. With that possibility I had to make another quick decision, whether to stay and take a chance there or make the quick 7 1/2 mile drive back down the Clingman's Dome Rd to Oconaluftee Overlook in North Carolina below the cloud cover at 5046 feet.
With only an hour before true sunrise I decided to take the chance and drive down to Oconaluftee.
When I arrived at the overlook light was coming on pretty darned quick but I had the whole place to myself, which I'd never seen here before. I was treated to gorgeous light and a tremendous sunrise. I ended up snapping over 350 shots (most of them bracketed though).
This image posted here is fairly early on in today's sunrise. Don't know if it is my best from the morning or how many keepers I have but at least this one confirms in my eyes that my decisions this morning were well worth it.

Definitely worth the early up! The image as a whole is terrific, but I think my fave part is the light just skirting the foreground treetops. It's a subtle, but important element of the image, IMO.

MY KIND OF MORNING
I got to feed 3 parts of my photography addictions this morning. Hey Rolls, Barns, and a foggy sunrise.
Waking up a bit late I left the house at 6:30am with very little time to get somewhere to catch sunrise so I went to one of my "go to" spots in the Kevin Taylor barn just down old hwy 68 towards Sweetwater. When I arrived, fog had covered the entire countryside and was j...ust starting to lift with the sun hitting the horizon.
Getting my feet soaked from the dew, I quickly found a great little grouping of rolls that worked with the fog in the field to the right and a sunburst just past the trees on the left background. Doesn't get much better than that.
Should have a couple more from this morning to share but put this together quick for a Friday evening. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

PLATINUM
It's amazing what Adobe Lightroom can do. With some heavy contrast, clarity, and sharpening and turning down the highlights and shadows and applying a Dark Sky preset from +John G Moore's Classic Black & White Collection (http://johngmoore.com/adobe-lightroom-premium-develop-presets/blackwhite-classic-looks/) this bright green plant looks completely different. Love playing with these presets.

REELFOOT SUNRISE
I just can't get enough of these images from #reelfootlake on Sunday morning with +Jim Denham  . With the light changing quick and so many different angles along the lake to shoot from, there were endless opportunities to capture this awesome sunrise.
I posted an iPhone shot from this vantage point that morning and normally I don't post a similar shot from the DSLR that I did from my phone but this one warrants it's own work.

Great choice of location/composition. One might almost think all the 'leaners' are are doing a little sun worshipping.
