WARMTH
  Our first morning in the #obx was spent photographing Jennette Pier in Nags Head, NC. Something that my brother +Jim Denham pointed out in one of his earlier posts was that the cement pier differs compared to the traditional wooden piers in that the cement legs reflected the light from sunrise and made for some great light play the entire time the sun was coming up.

PHOTOGRAPHIC THERAPY
  The beauty of living so close to both the #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark and the Cherokee National Forest is that on days when real work gets crazy and I'm about to blow a gasket or two, at 5:00pm I am only an hour away from some of the most beautiful streams, waterfalls, and mountain views anywhere in the USA. When I can quickly make these evening trips and grab some of this scenery in the camera I call this photographic therapy.
  Monday was a perfect example of this. Long day of work that started with rain and ugly weather. My softball game got canceled and then the skies started to clear up a bit. Still overcast but no more signs of rain.
  At 5:00 I only had the beautiful area of Tremont on my mind. My favorite part of the Smokies. I called my buddy +Tim Owens and we found ourselves at the end of Tremont Rd with tons of blooming Dogwoods and the trees starting to green up real nice. AAAhhhhhh.
  Doesn't get much better than that.

DOGGING IT IN TREMONT
The Dogwoods were blooming and trees were starting to green up in Tremont in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park this evening. Tim Owens and I took a quick drive there after work and did some battery recharging. This shot is near the end of Tremont Rd.

UNDOING AND ICON
Wow! What a great morning of shooting in Cades Cove inThe Great Smoky Mountain National Park with my buddy +Alex Banakas  . We timed it perfect as the gates opened about 5 minutes after arriving. Upon entering we made a beeline, or at least a beeline for the speed of the Cades Cove Loop, to Sparks Lane to catch the newly blossoming Dogwood Trees.
When we arrived there was a workshop being taught by pro photographer +Joseph Rossbach  that was completely covering the entrance to Sparks to capture the same thing we were. I'll have to say the Joe was incredibly cool and so were his workshop attendees. We blended in and were given space and Joe even shared thoughts and insight with us as well as his group.
I've been a follower of Joe's on both Facebook & Google Plus for a long time and as a fan of his it was way cool to meet and shoot with him and watch him conduct his workshop. If you're not following his work check him out. http://www.josephrossbach.com/
Well Alex and I took the iconic road-centered shot of Sparks Lane but then wanted to do something a bit different with it. Or at least something different for me. With my 70-300 lens on the camera, I moved over to the complete left-hand side of the road and turned the camera to a portrait orientation to use the awesome fence posts that line the road as a leading line to the famous Dogwood tree. The telephoto lens compresses the foreground and background making the trees look closer to me than they are. Love this visual effect.
Hope to have a few more images from this morning to post.

MARKING THE SPOT
  Something that is not widely known is the existence of the Gump Swamp right off the Cades Cove Loop Rd in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Hidden in the woods to the left of the road after turning left by the visitor's center and Cable Mill this swamp is well hid and very easy to overlook. It is also one of the neatest areas to do photography in Cades Cove if you can find it.
  Tall, straight trees, glassy water, and green moss covered tree trunks laying everywhere make for some creative compositions. In the next few weeks, when the trees fill out, this area will be beautiful green everywhere and the reflections will pop.

GIVING IN
  Sometimes you just have to give in to the iconic shot. Especially when golden morning light shines down on Cades Cove like it did yesterday when +Alex Banakas and I jaunted over for some photography. To me the only other thing that could've made the moment more iconic was some morning fog but unfortunately, it didn't pan out that way. Still think I could take this shot 100 different times and it be at least slightly different every time. Always like to crop this scene as a pano too for some reason.

SUMMER READY!
Friday morning's sunrise was nothing short of incredible. Especially with glass-like lake conditions when I arrived at work. I couldn't help but take a few pictures of it.
Although these personal watercraft floating pads have been anchored by our docks for a few years now, it's never dawned on me to use them in an image. When I noticed them it looked to me like they were trying to say "We're ready for summer to get here!".
I have at least one friend who is just dying for summer time to arrive and it looks like these floating pads agree.

HOLDING ON
  Seeming to be living its final days, Frisco Pier is barely hanging on just south of Cape Hatteras in the #obx. Seemed like it might fall down on us last Friday morning when we arrived to 25mph winds that eventually blew in a fog that soaked us and our gear to the point we had to quit shooting and find breakfast.

Boats - Kenny Chesney

  On our trek to the Outer Banks last Tuesday we stopped in Swanquarter, NC to do some photography in and around the fishing boats and docks. Brother +Jim Denham and I ran across this small boat tied to this tree just off the water and it really intrigued us. Almost like the boat was resting before being shoved off to go fishing again. Or like it's sitting there tied up watching the other boats cruise on by on their way out to the open ocean and it's just wishing it could go too.
  No matter the boat's story, it was a great untold story.
