Cades Cove Wildlife – 2011

Here are some shots of the wildlife we saw at Cades Cove this year. Since I don’t have telephoto lens, I rented a Canon 100-400L from Lensrentals.com. Overall it’s a pretty decent lens although it took some time getting use to it. Here is what I was able capture

Bears

Snakes

Other

Thanks for looking!

Don’t forget, all my prints are discounted for the entire month of June. Head on over to my storefront to browse and order your print!

This Week at the Lake – 51/52

Last Saturday I got my 6 year old son up extra early for a hike around Radnor Lake. We got there just in time for a great sunrise. I let him use my Rebel XSi (now that I’m on the 7D) and he loved it! He loved walking around with the camera strapped around his neck. I think he took more photos that I did! We saw everything I told him we might see: Barred Owl, Deer, Turkey, Ducks, Geese, Birds, Squirrel, and Chipmunks. Fun morning, something we’ll definitely do again soon…

Here he is shooting some deer:
I’ll have to post some of his photos here sometime

Here is another shot of the sunrise:

And the light on the lake:

This shot looks like something from November. The morning light coming from around the bend was great!

Here are a couple large Bucks we saw:

Here is another Buck taken another morning:

And some more Owl photos from the week:

And that’s it for the week! Next week is the finale! The weather forcast looks good, so let’s hope for something great!!

This Week at the Lake – 50/52

When all else fails, process the heck out of it and maybe it will look cool!

I struggled to pick a “lead” shot this week. I had this shot processed without the textures first. After reviewing all the shots I had for the week, I decided to re-edit this with some textures. I liked how it turned out so here it is! I love seeing and hearing these little birds too. They are so loud! I’ve taken tons of pictures of them through out the project so I was happy to have one as a lead shot.

Another favorite of the week was this one:

But it was way too similar to Week 46‘s lead shot.

Here are some others from the week:

This Red-Tailed Hawk landed pretty close to me. I was trying to hide behind a tree hoping he would come closer but he eventually flew off. All I got of him is from this view with that branch in the way 😦

Loved the light here…

Another Carolina Wren Singing away!

Wild Turkey

This is a terrible photo but a pretty funny story. The deer was literally running at full speed in circles early one morning. He just kept going and going!

And that’s it for the week!

This Week at the Lake – 47/52

More snow in middle Tennessee!? We’ve had quite the winter so far. I haven’t lived in this area for long but even I know that this much snow is pretty unusual. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning we got more snow so I headed out to Radnor Lake. I got the above shot before anyone else messed up the snow on the deck by putting footprints all over it!

Other shots from the snowy morning:
Caught these bucks in a battle to the death! OK, not really. They were more just kind of playing I guess. It never looked real intense and it certainly didn’t last very long!

I really liked the framing of the trees here and cold tones.

More random texture work

I haven’t gotten a shot of this stream at all during this project. This is downstream from the dam.

I went back to the lake on my lunch break to try to get more snowy shots:

Saw this deer about to cross the road as I leaving to go back to work. I got out and ready just in time! (I wish that sign was a “Deer Xing” sign)

I also went on Monday when I got these Deer shots:

And just to say I saw the owl again, here is a shot from Friday:

And that’s it for the week!

This Week at the Lake – 43/52

I can’t believe I haven’t taken a shot of this house yet. This is the original house on the lake property. It sits up on a little hill and overlooks the lake. No one lives there now but it is used by the park rangers.

I rented a Canon 7d for the week from Lensrentals.com, so all shots this week were taken with that camera. It’s really a great camera, I enjoyed using it this week.

I stopped by Radnor Lake on Tuesday, shortly after getting the camera. I had to try out the HDR:

There was still some snow on the ground from middle Tennessee’s Christmas snow.

My next chance to get to the lake came on Thursday morning.

I stood at that spot for 15-20 minutes hoping for some color and light. When I finally decided to go a little further down the trail, I turned around and saw:

He was so close to the path and so close to where I was standing but I never noticed! I was able to get within about 10 feet of him:

Grabbed this one on the way back to the car:

And that’s it for the week!
