My Atlanta Roadtrip

My Atlanta road trip could not have come at a better time, photography speaking. Many of you may not know but my wife and I are pursuing our master’s degree in business (MBA) at the University of Pikeville. This has been challenging on many different levels, especially the time constraints. So when giving the opportunity to recharge, photography speaking, I am all in.

My first stop was the Atlanta Historic Railway Museum. Many photographers hold workshops here each year and I know why now. This place is fantastic. The gear was simple. The above image, shot with my Nikon D800, Nikon 14-24mm lens, and the TVC-33L Really Right Stuff tripod. A tripod is necessary when shooting at locations like this. Always make sure tripods are allowed, in this case, the Southeastern Railway Museum does allow the use of tripods.

The above image is half post office, half baggage compartment. This Bethlehem car was built in 1928 and is equipped with steel catcher arms so a mail pouch can be picked up from a trackside crane without stopping or slowing the train. This image, taken with my Nikon D800, 14-24mm lens, TVC-33L RRS tripod. A favorite from the trip.

Next stop was Stone Mountain for some sunset images. While I have been atop Stone Mountain many times, this time is especially memorable. After arriving after the tram to the top closed, we decided to hike to the top. All I can say is, I need more exercise, much more.

With no cloud action, and hazy skies, I definitely will be back soon.
