This is a three shot HDR of a creek located off the Roaring Fork Motor Trail in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park near the Gatlinburg entrance to the park. We were there during the last week in October and caught the fall colors at close to their peak.
I think this Methodist Church is probably one of the most photographed churches around. I did a GOOGLE IMAGES search on it though and I didn't see any shots I liked as much as mine.[Of course I could be a little biased!] It's taken from the Rich Mountain Road which is a 12 mile unpaved mountain side ride that runs one way from Cades Cove to Townsend, TN.
This shot was hand held with my Olympus O-MD EM1 and a 40-150 F2.8 telephoto all the way out. Settings were F4.5 # 1/800 and ISO 1250 on auto.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
