The Bellwood Quarry – Atlanta Georgia

A couple of weeks ago I was given the opportunity through the Trust for Public Land to go and photograph the Bellwood Quarry on the west side of Atlanta. The Bellwood Quarry is part of Westside Park, a new City of Atlanta park that will be 351 acres along with a 45 acre lake once the Quarry is filled up.  This will be the biggest park in the city of Atlanta.  The Quarry will also serve a drinking water reservoir for the city of Atlanta.  Westside Park is part of the Atlanta Beltline Project.

City of Atlanta Night Skyline HDR

I took this shot from the Jackson Street Bridge overlooking Freedom Parkway, looking west towards the City of Atlanta night skyline.  It was a cold and windy night which made me nervous of camera shake despite my tripod, but on top of that the continuous traffic over the bridge would surely turn out a shaky picture…but I think it turned out pretty well.  This is an HDR shot using three exposures totaling close to a minute.  Let me know what you think in the comments.
