Finally had some free time over the last few days to take some more photos of the beautiful scenery in the area, and figured some of y'all would enjoy them.

Beautiful Pics Altitude!

So very calming and serene. My daughter dabbles in photography and asked me to ask you what kind of camera? Digital or 35 mm? If 35mm, what film & shutter speed? If digital, how did you get the movement of the water captured? What kind of flash or speed for the 1st pic?

I, of course, have no idea what she's asking! I just use a point and shoot HP digital. I've never even figured out what all the buttons are for. I'm not dumb, just technically challenged!

Thanks for the kind words taylor and Lavender.


taylor, I apologize for not getting to your questions sooner.  I have quite a few different cameras I use, but I've gone mostly digital at this point.  All the photos on this thread were actually taken with my "pocket" camera, which is a Nikon P5000 point and shoot digital.  Even though it's a point and shoot, it offers a fair bit of manual control, and I've found the quality rivals and even sometimes surpasses my more expensive digital SLR.


Blurring of the water is accomplished by using a slow shutter speed.  This can be accomplished with most digital cameras by setting the ISO to the slowest setting (I used ISO 64 for these, which is really slow, many cameras may only go as slow as 100 or 200) and setting the camera in aperture priority mode, which allows me to stop down the lens to it's lowest setting.  Essentially, the more I stop the lens down (for example setting it to F/8.0 instead of F/4.0 or F2.8) the less light the camera gets, and therefore needs a longer shutter speed to get enough light to make a properly exposed photo.  I've found that a shutter speed of 1/15 or slower will usually get the blurred look with fast moving streams and waterfalls.


The last photo in the list was a 1.1 second exposure at F7.6.


Hope that answers some of her questions.  I'd be happy to answer any more.  (Can ya tell I like talking photography?)

Enjoyed your photos, look really professional. I don't know how many times I've gone down the four lane early in the morning and saw something and said "someone should take that picture". I wish I had taken the time now.

Keep sending and we'll keep admiring.

My pickup was at the end of my driveway in back of my house, I knew the deer were in the area so I sat and waited. They barely new I was there. I have a NIKON digital that I recently purchased, and am practicing with it. Can't wait till the bears start coming through.

I just peeked in here for the first time. Beautiful pictures.

Every day, I see scenes worthy of a picture . . . sometimes the view looks like a painting.

Coming back from Rabun County around 5:00 p.m. recently, I saw scene after scene of valleys with green rolling hills surrounded by mountains. With the late afternoon shadows, it WAS a series of paintings!

Then you come into Towns County and see the lake sparkling like diamonds in the setting sun.

Gorgeous.

each year I allow one sunflower to burst out under my bird feeders, this one is in bloom today, and is about 9 feet tall. Thought I would photograph it before the squirrels knock it down.
