p.1 #1 · A Few from Lake Santeetlah


Lake Santeelah is located in Graham County, NC. If you remember the film 'Nell' with Jodie Foster, much of it was filmed in this area.

#1 Foggy Morning





#2 Autumn Colors





#3 Starry Night






Cheers,
Ed

#1 is lovely.

Looks like #3 is a composite since the reflection in the lake shows star trails - whoops.

Hi, Don.

Thanks for the feedback. Hope you are doing well.

Actually, it was a single frame. I suspect the water movement may have caused that illusion. There were some pockets of still water, and a few areas where there was a soft disturbance. Shot just as the moon set.

Cheers,
Ed

Beauties Ed. That third one is a knockout. The first two are merely outstanding. Stunning colors.

Hey Ed and Don,

This is very normal, and while I have never posed it to our astromical genius' like Eric and the others, I believe it's totally normal. I have noticed it always happening when I am shooting with water in the foreground reflecting the stars. What I think is that with the water so close to the camera, compared to the actual stars being out a billion miles away in the sky, that the closeness of the proximity has the reflection of the stars moving. It doesn't have anything to do with any water movement, other then water movement could break up the streaks.

So shooting a 30 second max exposure will get relatively sharp stars with little movement in the sky, but the close reflections will show the movement of the stars during the shooting duration.

Hey Ed,

You got some really cool shots here. #1 is my favorite with that wider view, but I do like the tighter view of #2 also. And you got a really nice set of stars there in #3.

Ed, great series overall. That first image is absolutely stunning though. I love the colors and the overall mood of the image.

A stunning set, Ed!
The first image is a magical depiction of the beautiful aspects of autumn colors- in the mountains- by a lake- and as a topper- that lovely fog. Lots of good things going on here.
Nice work.

My daughter paddled her kayak for the first time on this lake. I always enjoy seeing fresh views of our home area. Thanks for posting these!

Thanks all for the encouraging comments. Sorry I'm so late in responding. Leaving on my current trip to the UK, I quite honestly forgot about this post. I'll blame it on jet lag, not my age.

Cheers, All.
