Something Special

This morning around 0300hrs I was passing through Coldwater Michigan and saw a sight I just could not pass up on. Unfortunatly there was no place to pull over and take some pics so I went on to my delivery and dropped the trailer and hustled back to the bridge and got some pretty cool pics.
The river is the coldwater river and the orange glow is from a big greenhouse complex south of town.
I took the pics freehanded at night, the ISO was 6400 with a white balance set to cloudy.
I could’nt decide on vertical or horizontal so I’m using both.



Sunday Stills: Signs of Fall

Well I’m stuck in Texas this past week and its in the 90’s and no sign of fall anywhere in sight so its off to the archives this week, next month I’ll be back in Tennessee during the peak time for fall color so I’ll have some new pics them, till then I’m dreaming of getting back on the river and seeing some fall colors. All these were taken in the Tellico River area in Tellico Plains Tennessee ..:-)

A Quick Story Behind The Pic

One of my favorite things to do when home is going down to the river and photograph Kayakers. The area is called Baby Falls and has a drop of 15-20feet depending on the water level. On one of my first trips there I was just beginning photography and had my Sony DSC-H1 which at the time was a first generation point and shoot with a good 12x optical zoom. Anyway I was trying to get Kayakers in mid drop at the falls when this unfortunate fellow got twisted and ended up going over the falls upside down.
This is leading up to my next post on the Sunday Stills page for tomorrow which will be a little writeup on action photography. See ya there..Edoops
