Week 14 – #10 Dawn’s Light

10 Dawn's Light-1

Sorry to have been off so long, but moving is not fun.  I am in my new house and still  unpacking boxes.  But enough of the dreary.

Here is sunrise in TN on the Foothill Parkway just outside of Smoky Mountain National Park, looking down into the valley at the tops of clouds.

What you are not seeing is the hundred of photographers to my left and right.  I attended the first Landscape Photography Summit held in Townsend, TN, with a couple hundred other photographers and a varied cast of photographer leaders, including Matt Kloskowski, Jim Begley, Bill Fortney, Bill Lea, Wilson Reynolds, Jack Graham, Len Rue, Jr, Tony Sweet, John Barret, Ken Jenkins, Rob Sheppard, Brett Wells, and a keynote speech by Scott Kelby. (sorry if I left someone out).  It was quite an adventure.  Lectures and morning shoots, in the rainy mornings with the color just popping.

This is a sampling of some of the images taken during a workshop with James Corwin Johnson on Bird Key at sunrise, with our model Victoria doing yoga poses.  These were taken just as the sun was coming over the Sarasota skyline creating the silhouettes.  I went along to the shoot so I could have some images to use in my lightroom presentation at his workshop.
