BUILT FORD TOUGH
Now before I get started I just wanted to say that I am not a "Ford" guy. Or a Chevy guy. Or a Dodge guy.,,etc., The only reason I titled this what I did was because of the Ford truck parked in the doorway of the barn.
Another from last Thursday's sunrise at my friend Justin Belcher's barn out on Oak Grove Rd. This barn has a ton of character and it's location is perfect for sunrises with the sun coming up just behind it on the horizon.
Might make a neat Ford truck commercial as well haha.

ROWS OF LIGHT
Another from Sunday morning's sunrise at Tsali Notch Vineyard with +Alex Banakas  I had anticipated the sunrise happening over to the right behind the rows of grape vines. As you can see I was very much mistaken and working the rows into the sunrise took some work. When I edited this image though I really liked how it worked itself out.

BURSTING
Hooked up with my buddy +Alex Banakas  this morning at Tsali Notch Vineyard here in Madisonville, TN for a sunrise photo shoot. Been a while since me and Alex have shot together and was really good to see him and get our creative juices flowing. Luckily we were treated to an amazing sunrise.
I had anticipated the sun to come up in a different position on the horizon than it did so the c...ompositions I had already thought of got kind of thrown out the window upon getting there. As usual at Tsali, we seemed to migrate over by the old Tsali Truck that is parked next to the beautiful old tree. It just seems to not only anchor the foreground but add so much character to any image. Especially the way it grabs the sunrise light against the old faded red paint.
The colors were incredible and I will have some shots like the iPhone shot I posted earlier but elected to use this image to post first due to the fantastic sunburst and light from the sun in it. And it included all of the neat elements from the vineyard. The truck, tree, the events barn, and all surrounded by the grape vines.
Great morning, sunrise, and photo shoot with Alex. Can't wait to meet up and shoot again.
More to come from Tsali this morning.

BLUE HOLE RAYS
My buddy +Ron Williams  posted a gorgeous shot of this waterfall yesterday and it prompted me to go and work on one of my images from the same place.
This is the second of three sections of Blue Hole Falls. We spent a load of time photographing it and for good reason. Tucked back in these large rocks made it full of character and the sunlight shining behind it on the background foliage that cast some rays down over the falls just set it off but also made it extremely difficult to photograph.

That does look like a tough scene to shoot, but you definitely done good!

FOGGY FENCE ROW
It's amazing the difference 20 minutes of time makes on a scene. Especially on a spring morning in Cades Cove in the #GSMNP. On this morning, +Ron Williams +Travis Rhoads Dan Rhoads and I hiked early to Sparks Lane long before the sun came up to beat the crowd.
When we finally all figured out where we wanted to capture sunrise, we set up and waited for what seemed like hours ...for it to come up. In actuality, it was about 40 minutes and 25 or so workshop photographers later before the sun shined down across the lane and surrounding fields.
The whole time I was set up I was snapping images even though I was really holding out for the sunlight. At about 7:10, when the image I've posted was taken, the lane and fields were filled with fog as the dew started rising off the grass. This is the condition that photographers pine for in Cades Cove on spring and fall mornings.
20 minutes later, when the sunlight covered everything, the fog had all but gone away being burnt off by the warmth. A few weeks ago I posted the image that I was the fruits of our patience of that golden sunlight on this fence row.
Love them both.

This Great Blue Heron let me get a few pics of him this morning. Was surprised how close he let me get and how much I moved around before he flew off.

HIWASSEE EQUESTRIAN CENTER
On my way home Saturday night the sunset was shaping up to look like a winner and in my scrambling to find a spot to capture it. I ended up driving around the campus at Hiwassee College and found the Equestrian Center. Green grass, black wooden fencing, and an old barn definitely grabbed my interest and set up nicely against the background of the sunset. I especially l...oved the way the fencing curved to lead the eye to the barn and the sunset.
The sunset didn't turn out to be epic like I had hoped but it was still very nice and served up some soft light which made the whole place look great.
Will definitely find myself back at the HEC for more sunsets in the future.

CURIOUS COUPLE
Stopped along highway 411S on the way home tonight and found these two equines willing to pose for a setting sun pic for me.
How appropriate that my entire sunset set of pics started with these two only to find myself at the Hiwassee Equestrian Center to finish off the evening.

SUBTLE BURST
With it raining here in Madisonville I find myself digging through the archives and stumbled upon this shot from our Spring Smokies shoot back in May.
With my addiction to sunbursts its a miracle that I missed this subtle little sunburst from our Friday night sunset at Morton's Overlook. Unlike the person heckling us for continuing to shoot this sunset, I really enjoyed the simple color and layers of the mountains and clouds. Especially with a telephoto lens instead of a big wide shot.

The Garden Gate - The Black Crowes

Was able to catch a bit of this morning's sunrise on my way to work. I stopped at one of my normal places, Justin Belcher's barn on Oak Grove Rd. Although I started out with the barn in the frame I made my way over beside the barn to the big green gate and fence row that separate it from the pasture to the east and the rising sun.
It wasn't until I set the camera and tripod down low next to the corner on the right that the shot really popped for me. Especially with the sunlight shining against the cross bars of the green gate and the tall grass in the field.
