Sweet View, Great Smoky Mountains
A sweeping view of the Great Smoky Mountains at sunset, Clingmans Dome, Tennessee.
I've been thinking a lot about long lens landscapes lately, and found a terrific read here. For this particular image, I used a medium telephoto lens of 70-200 @ 125mm. The greater focal length helped to bring attention to the sweeping patterns of the mountain range while eliminating unneccesary distractions. Camera settings were as follows: f16 for maximum depth of field, 1/2" shutter, ISO 100, tripod mounted.
