Smoky Mountain National Park. The technical challenge was to get down the very steep river bank and climb onto the big rock in the river. The creative challenge was that I had to lay on my stomach so that I could get low enough to get the water flow over the rocks in for of me. Canon 5d MK III, 24-105mm, Induro tripod. Exposure: 2.5 sec at f/13, ISO 200.

Biography

I am an aspiring professional landscape photographer living in Nashville, Tennessee. My love and passion is for landscape photography though I have taken portraits, my preference is for the natural world. I like to capture the beautiful landscape scenery that I encounter on my travels throughout the United States. My favorite places are the Smoky Mountains, the mountains of the Eastern Sierras and the desert Southwest, but I am always looking to travel to different places that I haven't been before.
