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.

We were leaving Phipps Plaza on Friday night after stocking up on winter clothes at Belk and I got a couple of pictures of the skyline looking west over Lenox Road.  There are a lot of great perspectives from Phipps Plaza of nearby Buckhead high rise buildings.  Here is how they were shot:

Chattahoochee River National Recreation Park Photography

This past week I stopped by the Whitewater Creek area of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Park to see how spring was coming in.  Spring was in full force, the wildlife was everywhere.  I crouched by the water to take a picture and a beaver popped up right in front of me checking out some wood for his fort.  There were salamanders all over the place, and of course a blue heron and lots of ducks.  Here is a shot looking north up the Chattahoochee.  The clouds were vibrant and really made the blue sky pop.

The Georgia Dome – Home of the Atlanta Falcons

I got this HDR shot today of the Georgia Dome where the Atlanta Falcons will be playing the San Francisco 49’ers this Sunday in the 2013 NFC Championship Game.  I am so pumped for this game and hope the Falcons can earn their ticket to the Super Bowl in New Orleans.  I’ll be there and hope you will too!

Water In and Around Atlanta

Over the past 6 weeks I have been taking a photography class at the Showcase School here in Atlanta.  We had to choose a project for the class and I decided to document some of the bodies of water in and around Atlanta.  A few examples that I photographed are the Chattahoochee River, Nancy Creek, Lake Clara Meer, the Pond in Atlantic Station, and the Chastain Park Pond.  Here are some of the photographs from my project:
