Great Smoky Mountains
« on: May 28, 2018, 07:55:03 pm »

Have not posted here in a while, too many things happening outside photography.

While moving to Florida, I crossed the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I got there quite late, unfortunately, just in time for one (bracketed) shot as the light was waning. In any case, I hope I managed to get those classic layered mountains and the mist in-between. A bit of a cliché, but mine nevertheless.

The tones in the layering are wonderful.  Classic, and really nice, particularly against the sky that you had there.

Timeless classic with the layers and haze.

 Hi Slo!! Great shot you have there. Where will you be in FL? I have a place in West Palm Beach about 10 minutes from PBI airport.

Nice. I know, it's always a good feeling to (re)make a classic picture oneself.

Another masterful work by the maestro as we've all come to expect.

Exquisite photo, Slobodan.
Passing through the mountains is the best part of the drive to Florida.

Fantastic image!!!

I always wanted to recreate this image with layers of torn paper.

This is a STUNNER for sure! What beautiful, layered, colors and a classic capture of what use to be the mountains of home.

A bit of a cliché, but mine nevertheless.

I am thinking of going for a tour with my camera around the Smokey Mountains, Blue Ridge Mountains and the Skyline Drive area etc and this is a shot I definitely had in mind to take myself, as it reminds me of some of the shots from one of MR's VJ workshops in this area (link here). Which every time I watch it, it gives me the desire to go there and shoot this type of shot and from what I see of other photographers images from these locations, I think I have a very good chance of getting one very much like it myself.

Oh and there is nothing wrong with shooting clichés Slobodan, as I can't see why we would ever want to try and restrict ourselves by setting limits on what we can shoot, just because someone else has shot it before and if you enjoyed yourself, then what's not to like?

So yes, nice image and I fully intend to get one of my own just like it someday  ;)
