I set my alarm for an early awakening Sunday morning. I hit the snooze a couple of times, but when I saw the dense fog advisory, I knew there would be some interesting opportunities to catch some morning light. I drove around looking for some interesting subjects and ended up in Franklin. My first shot of the morning was with my Mamiya 645 1000S with some Kodak Tri-X 400. It was a shot of Main Street with the sun rising at my back just before the street lights turned off. I’m anxious to see how this one turned out. I believe I have 8 or 9 shots left on that roll. After tearing down my tripod, I made my way to the Natchez Trace Bridge. The fog was thick and it covered the entire bridge. It was dissipating by the minute so I settled on three quick shots. One of these shots was on the Mamiya, so I will have to wait for those results. The other two were digital shots as seen in this post. The Natchez Trace Bridge is one of my favorite subjects. I have shot this bridge numerous times and seen many pictures by others. Each shot I have taken and each picture I have scene of this bridge all look so different. It’s amazing how light can change a scene so drastically.
I left the bridge and headed further South to visit my parents. I ended up visiting until late evening. On the way back home, I stopped by Rutledge Falls. We have had a few flood advisories after all the snow and rain over the last several weeks. I thought I would see how much water was falling over the rocks. As you can see there was a nice flow of water. I don’t have any filters in my bag, so I had to rely on the low light and small aperture to get the water to smooth out. The waterfall pictures are not the best as the lighting was kind of dull, but I decided to shoot anyway. You can see the waterfall captures in the slide show below. I hope you enjoy the images.
