Anne and Matt hang out along the river. I was real glad to find a vantage point that showed them and the river with that large rock face in the background. This might be my favorite image from the trip.
An abstract look at one of the flower beds.
This is the front of the house shot at dusk. A flash on the left and one on the right supplement the porch lights to illuminate the house. I made sure to go and turn on every light in the house for these.
I am started to collect pictures of my car in cool places. This certainly fits that description. This is on the Blue Ridgeway Parkway just northeast of Asheville.
Yes, it's a picture of me taking a picture. This was an exercise in lighting and I just happened to be the only subject around. One flash camera left is aimed at me and one flash camera right is aimed at the big boulder. The ambient exposure is slightly underexposed to allow the areas lit by flash to pop out.
Here is the set-up shot for the above image. You can see the camera on the tripod, one flash on the ground and one flash on a stand across the pool.
I was walking around the river at sunrise and a single beam of light made it through the trees to hit this stone. Everything was in shadow except for this one rock bathed in light. It was pretty cool.
That's it for the vacation. Thanks to the SC crew for accomodating us while we were there. We are looking forward to y'all making it down once Baby Vichich arrives.
