Percy Priest Lake

with 2 comments

J. Percy Priest Lake is a reservoir in north central part of the U.S. state of Tennessee. It is formed by J. Percy Priest Dam, located between miles six and seven of the Stones River. The dam (easily visible from Interstate 40) is located about 10 miles (16 km) east of downtown Nashville and impounds a lake 42 miles (68 km) long. The lake and dam are named for Congressman Percy Priest. Also view percy priest lake art  from FAA.

This is my favorite, single maple tree (view maple tree art on FAA) on water so-rounded by grass and three huge boulders almost fully submerge.

Downtown Riverbank at Night

I was sitting for a while on a sturdy platform (I thought it was) and taking pictures by the river until a tugboat passed by and the platform started to bounce up & down. People from above crossing the footbridge to watched free concert probably laughing at me as I was on panic mode to safety while my camera is still on tripod and shutter open for the next 20 sec.

Lets hike and camp out!

Buntot Palos (literally translates to “Eel’s Tail”). It is more known as Hidden Falls among the locals. Situated on the edge of the Sierra Madre mountain range in the lake side town of Pangil, Laguna. It’s close proximity to Manila make it an ideal destination for hikers and mountaineers.  

And now my update on the project that I am currently working on was a shot of Kai M., unlike my first try this one is much easy during pp time. Now taking the shots and pp was a bit easy, the next thing that I should worry about it the virtual compostion to make it appealing and dramatic.
