We are about halfway through our time here and what better way to spend it hiking the trails of Smoky Mountain National Park... ohh and I should mention that before that I witnessed the greatest sunrise I've ever seen. That was amazing. Seeing the sun pop up overtop the mountains and spilling light into the fog covered city was spectacular. I'll take that over a beach sunrise any day.
Also I was able, with the help of some new software, to try out some new photography techniques, specifically HDR. If you've ever used an iPhone you are probably somewhat familiar with the process but essentially I'm taking three or more photos, one exposed for the sky, one for the ground and one right in the middle of that allowing me to pull as much detail as I need in order to create an incredible image.
Check back tomorrow and Monday for photos from my last two days here. I sure hope I can top today!
