Fall

This Week at the Lake – 37/52


Say “Cheeeeese”!

It’s definitely deer season at Radnor Lake. There are always lot’s of deer there but there seem to be an extra amount now. Here are a few more deer photos captured this week:

10 pointer!

This buck wasn’t going anywhere, he had is eye on a doe that was laying near the path.

Other shots from the week:

This one was part of an engagement session I did last Saturday at Radnor Lake

And that’s it for the week!

This Week at the Lake – 36/52

So here’s a first for my Radnor Lake project! I was at the lake for the sunrise last Saturday and I actually saw 3 beavers swimming around near the shore. I watched one of them eat, then I took this shot of one that swam close to me. I think that’s when they realized I was there because the started swimming in circles and hitting their tails on the water.

I got a few other shots early that morning:

After that, I met up with a few people from the Nashville Photography Meetup Group as well as a few people I met in the Radnor Lake Group on flickr. Half way around the lake, we had a Red Tailed hawk fly right by us! He landed in a tree a ways away. When we caught up to him, he took off chasing a bird:
This is the best I could get this time. Before this project is through I’m going to get a good shot of one of these hawks…

I little while later, we spotted this barred owl:

(Thanks to Scott, aka Mugmar for the extra reach on this shot. He let me borrow his 100-400 for a few minutes)

Other shots from later in the week:

And that’s it for the week!

This Week at the Lake – 35/52

I figured this was an appropriate lead shot this week as we enter November and get closer to Thanksgiving!

I’m posting late today because I got up early this morning to go to…… Radnor Lake! I met up with a few people from the Nashville Photography Meetup Group as well as a few people I met in the Radnor Lake Group on flickr. Lot’s of fun, and good to meet some more photographers. I’ll have those pictures up for next weeks post.

For this week I was only able to visit twice, Wednesday and Thursday. I didn’t get much Wednesday morning because shortly after I got on Otter Creek Road it started to rain on me. Here is what I got before the rains came:

The rest of my shots all came on Thursday. I took a half day off work because it was my sons birthday. I had a few hours to kill before he got home so I headed to the lake. Here is what I came away with on Thursday:

I know I take a lot of these type shots but I really like them!

The clouds starting rolling in right about the time I got to this overlook. They really made for a great lakescape.

One of the few times this lens ever comes off my camera!

I saw this guy sitting there so I would take a shot and then take a couple steps toward him, take another shot and then another couple steps. Just trying to see how close I could get. I think I could have gotten closer but some other hikers came up behind me and he ran off.

Not the best shot, but I had to put this up for the Brentwood Police Captain I was talking to. We were both watching the HUGE buck for a while. He was down in a ravine and never came closer to the path.

More turkeys

One of my favorites from the week….

And that’s it for the week!

This Week at the Lake – 34/52

This week is all about the fall color at Radnor Lake. I’d say the color has peaked this week. There is mostly yellow, but also some bright reds and deep oranges. It’s a beautiful time to be walking the trails…

A couple more shots I wanted to share that don’t have to do with the fall color:
This is a single exposure (30 sec) with a Graduated neutral density filter. Not something I do often but wanted to try it “non-hdr”.

Also, a couple black and whites that don’t fit with the “Fall Color” theme:

And that’s it for the week!

Sewanee – The University of the South

Last Saturday I met up with a few local photographers and headed down to Sewanee, Tennessee and the University of the South.

We were in search of fall color but came across All Saints’ Chapel. It was an amazing building with beautiful stained glass windows and awesome architecture. The photos don’t even begin to represent just how incredible it was.

Here are some others from the Campus of the University of the South:

Here is some fall color I got on the trip as well:
