Spring images from Tremont, GSMNP

The last light of sunset gently filters through the forest canopy and provided a really nice glow. I cropped this image to 4×5 format to remove some of the uninteresting surrounding along the banks of the river.

After the sun had faded, I continued to work the scene. I was drawn to the flow of the water and the symmetry of the 3 big rocks. A traditional format was not going to portray the scene as I envisioned it, so I decided a pano would work best. I shot 4 vertical images and then merged them in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

I am off today to Shenandoah National Park to shoot spring forest scenes and waterfalls. Tomorrow i am meeting up with a few clients for a private workshop and we will be focusing on White Oak Canyon, Cedar Run and Doyle’s River Falls. We might even get a break in the stormy weather for a dramatic sunset from Skyline Drive, keeping my fingers crossed!

In other news, we still have 1 space available for our Shenandoah Spring Workshop that starts on May 15 and ends on May 17 at sunset. The cost is $525.00. If anyone is interested in signing up, please contact me at  for further details.

Also, we have announced a new series of Photo Tours/Holidays for 2010. These tours are epic in scope and adventure and include lodging and transportation . The first one for 2010 is the Ultimate Appalachian Spring Tour that starts in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and ends on Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. These tours are limited to only 5 participants and we have already booked up 2 spaces since listing the venue yesterday. Get your reservations in now before its too late.

    It’s hard to capture the magic of GSNP photographically but you nailed it. These particular images almost look like fantasy paintings. It brought back some wonderful memories for me.
