A Shot A Day – 2016 (05/20/2016)

“Stairway To…”

If you’re hearing a Led Zeppelin riff here I totally get it. This staircase is wrapped around the remains of an industrial smokestack and can be found at the Ariel-Foundation Park. A former PPG glass plant converted to a community park and gardens.

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (141A of 365)-(20-05)

Sony Alpha A7RII, Zeiss Batis 18mm f/2.8

ISO 100 – 1/60 @ f/16 – 18mm

I was lucky the day I shot this, the skies were really dramatic and all the tones, textures and shapes in the scene just worked together really nicely. In shooting this image there were two major concerns. One, make sure that I was in the correct position to optimize the angle of the structure in the frame. Two, make sure that I got the edges aligned with the corners of the frame and the smokestack centered correctly.

    April, in the Smokies, is a magical time to be photographing in the area. The forest floors are carpeted with wildflowers, the forest canopy itself is freshly new with lush tones of green and the streams and waterfalls are burgeoning with peak water levels for the year, yielding stunning opportunities for long exposure imaging. Both the Dogwoods and Red Buds should be in bloom at this time and the wildlife opportunities Will be heightened as well, with deer, coyote, wild turkeys and black bears being commonly sited throughout the month.
