The main waterfall in the Green Mountain Nature Preserve, Huntsville. This was taken early on an very overcast autumn morning. Still, it needed a 4x neutral density filter and a tripod for an exposure of about 1 second.
Usually, I shoot photos on the manual setting, but for this, I could experiment with different exposures for best effect by setting it to shutter priority.
I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown.
I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles.
I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
