Blue Ridge Parkway, Looking Glass Falls


When I chose a camera for my travels, I bought one with monster zoom capability:  26-676mm.   One of my favorite photo techniques is to find one perspective and capture it at several telescopic ranges.


My camera’s destiny was to arrive at The Blue Ridge Parkway in mid-October.


Below is Looking Glass Falls glimpsed as a small white dot a mile away and through the telescopic lens.

    Fantastic Al. I use a Cannon Powershot, which I love, but it only has a 20x zoom. It’s a pocket point and shoot because I always carry my binoculars around my neck for bird watching. I’m dying to see your photos. I’ll probably start posting mine on my blog tomorrow. As you know my blog is days behind me, just as I was a day behind you. Cheers.

    Wonderful perspectives, Al. As always you enchant us with your photos. I’m not a photographer, but I can certainly appreciate fine shots.

    Steady shot. No blur at that magnification – must’ve turned the engine off – the one under the hood or the one under your sternum. Terrific colors, and just starting to come out. You must feel lucky to be in their midst, enjoy the visuals.

    Beautiful photos! Great to meet you today! Thanks for your critique on my work! Love that the first blog post of yours that I decided to read centers on a telescope!
