It’s time for another Brenda Photo Challenge! The current challenge theme is Spring Easy. Much to our delight, spring has been sprouting in east Tennessee for several weeks now. I took a few pictures in the area to share with you, and I did NOT skimp on the saturated colors in the processing!
Would you believe that the image below is right alongside a 4-lane parkway?! This road is only about three miles from us, and it is glorious sight for sore eyes in the spring season. A local garden club has planted countless daffodil bulbs in the right-of-way over the years. As soon as those blooms start to fade, then the mustard grass starts to bloom, the redbuds and dogwoods don their colorful coats, and other trees begin to bud out with their leaves. The camera settings for this image were f/7.1, 1/250 second, and ISO 400.
And this stand of blooming redbuds can’t help but make you smile when you take an exit off of the parkway. The photo was taken at f/5.0, 1/800 second, and ISO 400.
So where is an example of famous dogwood blooms in east Tennessee? Why, right here! It looks like the feathery clouds in the background are helping the branches reach for the sky! The camera settings were f/9.0, 1/250 second, and ISO 400.
