Kathy & I made a late afternoon stop this past Saturday at the Little Glade Mill Pond along the Blue Ridge Parkway, not too far from the intersection with US21. The light was right, the colors were great and I mixed up the fuzzy and the sharp. I don’t get to pull out the 55-200 often, but it was just the ticket for this group of photos.
I’ve got a few more, so there may be a follow up post. Stay tuned!

Indeed! Quite green. You do get around. Funny, I’m up in area of the Parkway every other weekend, but I never quite make it there. 🙂
The Parkway is like a magnet to us, so anytime we are in the area we make a point of going. That particular part of the parkway is one of the least traveled sections, which is part of what makes it appealing to us! 😉
We were at this pond for about 45 minutes, and the whole time we were there only one car stopped, and it was a couple having engagement pictures taken. At least they didn’t ask me to take the pictures! 🙂
Now, that is what I call green. One thing I like about the Velvia film simulation, is how it makes the green pop. If have to have me pick a favorite image I would choose the second one, the reflections on the pond. Well done, again. These could make the screen saver list.
You’re on to my secrets, Monte! 🙂 I did use the Velvia profile with a dash of my own secret sauce. I juiced these quite a bit, but did it through clarity, contrast and lowering the black point, rather than dialing in more saturation.
I’ve got a few more to work on, and you might just see the wallpaper you mentioned! 🙂
