If anyone happened to watch The Masters golf tournament on television this past weekend, it would have been impossible to miss the beautiful colors of the many azalea blossoms. It is not an accident that the tournament is played each April as the Georgia landscape comes to life at that time. However, Augusta is not the only place where one can see those blooms. Further West in the state, one can find breathtaking views of their own. This past Friday I visited a favorite local hot spot and was greeted with the scene featured here. With the overcast sky, I had soft muted tones that were simply vibrant. The calm windless day made for a creamy smooth lake reflection. This was shot at approximately 11:00 A.M., which would have been impossible on a sunny day. It’s a simple composition but one that I really enjoy and hope you do as well.

Until next time, good light and keep shooting. –KEVIN
