I love shooting pictures for the right reasons, particularly when they turn out well.
Now, I live in Sewanee, Tennessee. It is the same town I was born in, and I grew up hiking on this particular track of land. One of my dear friends owns a farm in the bottom of Lost Cove, it is a place close to my heart. It is wonderful to do anything to help set that land aside. Development on the southern cumberland plateau is going on at a dizzying pace, so keeping almost 3,000 acres natural is a huge accomplishment.
My small -and I emphasize small- part in the campaign was shooting aerial photos of the cove. I picked a morning in late summer after a storm front had moved through so the air would be clear and I hoped there would be mist in the valley.
The mist was there. Out of 700 frames, there are about 4 that work well. What a beautiful morning.
