Big Falls 4-26-2013

I’ve been here a lot lately, but I wanted a short trip and an opportunity to use my 10 stop ND filter.  The above photo was taken with two shots.  One for foreground and one with the 10 stop filter to make the waterfall and water silky smooth.  The waterfall ended up being a 4 minute exposure.

Bud…. Weis…. Hey, where is Er?!?!

On my way down to catch some photos of flowers and scenery, I saw these two frogs hanging out around a pond.  These frogs are HUGE!  I almost thought they were fake! (more…)


The Old Mill

Old Mill-7

Today I visited the Old Mill in North Little Rock for the first time.  What a cool place!  Unfortunately I was shooting in broad daylight, Still though, it was beautiful as the dogwoods and azaleas were at peak bloom! (more…)

Mount Magazine-26-(HDR)

 

I had been wanting to shoot some waterfalls with all this rain we’ve been having and I finally had a chance on Friday.  I made the 2 hour drive out to Mount Magazine.  After all these years in Arkansas, this was my first trip to this place.  It’s beautiful!  The big problem I had though was that there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.  Nothing messes up a good waterfall picture like direct sunlight.  Oh well.  The picture above is the only real keeper from the bunch in my opinion.  I hope to go back on a nice overcast day to get some better photos.  These first pictures are from Hardy Falls.  This is a VERY easy waterfall to find because it is right along the road on the way to Mt Magazine. Actually, it is UNDER the road as this is a bridge.  The falls are named after the man hired to build these awesome bridges along the the way up the mountain. There are waterfalls on both sides of this bridge that are beautiful.
