Great Smokies – Winter 2019

Pastel Sunset, Cades Cove – Nikon D850, 70-200mm

A selection of images taken on a workshop with Tony Sweet and Susan Milestone in January 2019 in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Finally got to experience the Smokies in a some real winter weather, magnificent! The newly completed Foothills Parkway was spectacular and worth the long wait for the completion, not to be missed.

Images taken with a Nikon D850 and IR converted Nikon D800E.

Massive Waterlily Pond

Waterlily Portrait – Nikon D810, 70-200mm

I was driving around some back country roads this morning, exploring the area looking for a photo opportunity when I found a huge area of waterlily’s. Second image gives you a very small idea of the size of this pond, at least an acre maybe two. Third image is a 100% crop from center of the second image. The detail you can get with the D810 is simply amazing!!! Click on images to view larger…
