Reflections – in Landscape

The wonderful thing about using reflections when taking photos is that they can completely alter the image from something fairly straightforward to something richer or abstract or otherwise more artistic. Here is a reflection of the landscape at sunset in a small body of water.

Bridge over Little Tennessee River

A wooden bridge over Little Tennessee River in Franklin, North Carolina. Meandering for five miles through some of the most beautiful natural landscape in Franklin, the Little Tennessee River Greenway is a community recreational green space. A long stretch of uninhabited land along the river has been beautifully utilized to provide a scenic walkway through several natural habitats including wetlands, pastures and upland woods.

Iconic Red Bridge

Sarah P. Duke Gardens’ iconic red bridge is named the Meyer Bridge. The bridge is located over the large pond in the Culberson Asiatic Arboretum and is a favorite spot for visitors to pause for photos and gaze at the beauty around them. It was recently redesigned, along with the surrounding landscape, to become the official entrance to the Durham-Toyama Sister Cities Japanese Pavilion and Garden,

Holes with a View

Being a golfer allows me to travel to different places that have scenic landscapes. While a DSLR camera is not always present, the newer phone cameras capture the spirit of the scene quite well.

We went to Mount Mitchell Golf Course that is nestled in the valley formed by Mount Mitchell and the surrounding tall ranges in northwestern North Carolina. Will be posting images from this area over the next few days. Here is a view from the clubhouse of holes one and ten with pleasing views
