Day Four – 5 Day B&W Photo Challenge

Today, we take a trip to Cades Cove in eastern Tennessee, one of my favorite places to visit. Driving and walking around Cades Cove is like taking a step back in time.

And for an added treat, step over to my post for today’s Photo101 class. I use the same scene that I shot with a Nikon CoolPix.

I am asking my Photo101 classmate and new blogger friend Celesta at Enjoying Life to join in on this photo challenge. She has some amazing photos on her blog. You should take a look.

Day Three – 5 Day B&W Photo Challenge

Today’s photo was taken at Tremont Outdoor Resort on the eastern edge of Townsend, TN. Growing up in Texas, I fell in love with the majestic Live Oak trees. As I traveled to the eastern US, I encountered the vast Piney woods that stood tall and straight. From that point on, I have been drawn to tall trees.

As we were clearing the leaves from the camp sites, this tall Sweet Gum caught my eye.

The tree reminded me of a bottle rocket soaring up into the sky and exploding when it reached its zenith.

Today I am asking my blogger friend Nancy at Two Trails One Road to join in on the challenge. Nancy has some amazing photographs on her blog. I hope she does.

I love taking sunrise and sunset photos. Enjoy this Black&White photo from Blue Ridge, Georgia.

Today’s sunset photo was taken in at the end of our stay in Blue Ridge, Georgia. I was standing on the southern side of US 76, GA 515. We were there for 6 months while working at Windy Valley Llamas. Blue Ridge is about 10 miles south of the Tennessee state line and is nestled in very southern part of the Blue Ridge Mountain Range.

Today I ask my blogger friend Maria at Another Cup Of Coffee to join me in the challenge. She has some amazing photos on her blog. I hope she joins in.

Day One – 5 Day B&W Photo Challenge

I did a little research on this 5 Day B&W Photo Challenge and could not find much regarding the origin. The two rules of this challenge are as follows:

  1. Create a post, in five consecutive days with a B&W photo.  The photo can be a recent photo or old.
  2. Each day invite another blog friend to join in the fun.
  3. Tag each post with 5 Day B&W Photo Challenge (I am adding this third rule)

Shot with Nikon D2000, using 18-55mm Zoom set at 22mm, ISO 100, f/25, 2.0 sec.

This is one of the first water falls I photographed while in Georgia. The water flow was minimal so it was not as dramatic as I had hoped. Plus the viewing platform was crowded with people since the park was full of people on this warm July day. Rather than capture the entire water fall,  I decided to capture this cute ripple as the water flowed over the flat rocks.

Also this was my first effort at creating a cotton look of the water flow over the rocks.

I would like to offer this challenge to my Aussie friend Cathy at https://cranethie.wordpress.com/. Cathy has some incredible photos on her blog.

Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
