Nike Golf Fans Blog Features “Sunrise on the Highlands”

This week the 93rd PGA Championship is being held at the Atlanta Athletic Club, in Johns Creek, Georgia. I’ve had the opportunity to visit the private club a few times including the opportunity to Sunrise On The Highlandsphotograph the golf course early in the morning. Having posted a few pictures of the golf course on Flickr, I received a request this week from a fellow blogger to use “Sunrise on the Highlands” as the backdrop for the NGNATION.com blog during this championship week. NGNATION is a blog for the fans of Nike Golf. Take a minute and check out the NGNATION website.

You can view other images from the Atlanta Athletic Club on my Flickr site as well. My panorama shot of the 18th Hole and Lake just out from the clubhouse is also available on this website, 2nd row, last image.

Images Selected for the RPS Fall Juried Show

This year’s Roswell Photographic Society Open Juried Exhibit 2010 is now on display through November 26th. The show will be available for viewing, free of charge, at the Roswell Visual Arts Center. The 85 images on display cover the categories of Landscape/Nature, Architecture/Travel, People/Animals and Abstract/Still Life. I have two entries that were juried into the show.

What does “juried” mean? A juried show is where photographs are submitted for entry and a judge(s) selects the photographs that will make up the show. This year there were more than 320 entries and 85 were selected for the show. Two of my entries were selected for the show:

Sunrise on the Highlands (click photo to enlarge) was shot this past June at the Atlanta Athletic Club, in Johns Creek, Georgia. My employer sponsored a day at the club and I took advantage of the beautiful scenery on the golf course prior to the shot gun start.

 

 

 

 

Sunlit Trees, Smith Plantation

Sunlit Trees, Smith Plantation

 

Sunlit Trees, Smith Plantation (click photo to enlarge) was shot this past April at the historic Smith Plantation in Roswell, Georgia. I used an “impressionistic photo painting” technique where I moved the camera while taking the photo. The movement of the camera caused the colors of the sunlit trees to streak, similar to an artist’s brush strokes. If you squint, you can see the tree trunks and the green foliage in the branches as well as on the ground.
