Flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Atlanta went smoothly. Got into my rental car, turned on Waze for navigation and stared up gps4cam on my iPhone for geotagging. After about two hours I made an unscheduled stop at Tallulah Point Overlook.
Thern I continued on to Tallulah Gorge State Park which is what I had planned. It was spectacular. The visitor center pointed me in the right direction and I went on a scouting walk with the Sony. I went to the overlook for a view of the suspension bridge. View was awesome.
I decided to go back to the car to get the Nikon and tripod and the rest of the gear. After shooting the suspension bridge I hiked over to a second overlook that had a great view of a waterfall. I couldn't get the shot I wanted, to smooth the water out, because my 4 stop nd filter was still in the car and it was getting late. This is the shot I got.
Then I got back into the car and set out for Gatlinburg, passing through Cherokee, NC and Smoky Mountain National Park. Driving through the park was wonderful. The trees are still turning from their winter state to green and the variety of colors was beautiful.
Arrived at the Hilton Garden in and met up with the workgroup leaders, Adam Jones and Donna Eaton. We had a brief orientation meeting with the 11 other participants.
Adam decided we would not go out for a sunrise shoot on Tuesday because rain was forecast. The plan is to go to Greenbriar Cove in the park at 8:30 weather permitting.
I decided I will go back to Tallulah Falls on Friday on the way back to Atlanta.
