Default Up/Down: Fire Tower Shadow

Have never posted to the "Shoot Out" before, but happened to notice the topic this time, and thought this shot from the top of Holston Mountain Fire Tower might be appropriate...

In case you are interested, here is a shot of the tower itself, and a more typical view from the tower, looking across to some of the nearby ridges.

PS - Holston Mt Fire Tower is located at Holston High Knob, in Northeast Tennessee, Cherokee National Forest.

All three images are outstanding but the first two (shadow and tower "portrait") are a bit outside the box for the challenge.

As a newcomer to the forum, I encourage you to read the forum guidelines anchored at the top of the forum. We try to limit the size of images to 700-800 pixels for the long dimension. These are 950 px.

Thanks for joining us and hope to see you again.

Cal

Cal, it's your challenge so you make the rules, but I think the first image is just the ticket... something I'd have posted had I been so fortunate as to have taken it. I'll bet the camera wasn't level!

Either way, great images.

Hi Mole and is nice to have you posting some shots. Like the catch of the sun in #2.

I was thinking that the first one really fit the topic, looking down from the tower with the trees and the shadows also. A neat shot (and it gave me an idea of one that I took a while ago that would fit this topic).

Walter - Thanks so much!

Cal - So sorry - will need to read the rules more carefully next time. Would you like me to remove these, or perhaps repost them smaller? Just let me know...

Bob - Glad you enjoyed these. You'll have to come hike to the tower someday soon!

JJ - Thanks! #2 was greatly helped by lens choice - the Pentax DA 15 is a natural for "sunbursts..."

Harriet - Thanks so much. Did you post the one that this one reminded you about?
