Nashville Skyline at Night

Nashville Skyline at Night.

The AT&T building dominates this print of the famous Nashville skyline and riverfront park. Colloquially known as the Batman Building due to its distinctive design and dark color, this 617 ft., 33-story skyscraper located between 3rd and 4th Avenue in downtown Nashville is the tallest building in Tennessee.

Riverfront Park, located at the lower end of Broadway and parallel with 1st street, is mostly concrete and giant terraces (or stairs) leading down to the Cumberland River. The Amphitheater is a popular venue for many events including the annual CMA Music Festival and the nationally acclaimed fireworks display at the annual Music City July 4th Celebration.

This print captures the essence of Nashville’s vibrant nightlife. Stroll up Broadway to 2nd Ave. for the Wildhorse Saloon, Hard Rock Cafe, B. B. Kings, and more. Continue up Broadway to visit The Stage, Robert’s Western World, and Tootsies Orchid Lounge. Turn right (north) on 5th Ave. at Legends Corner and you’re just a half block away from the “Mother Church of Country Music”, the Ryman Auditorium home to the Grand Ole Opry for 31 years.

I captured this shot from the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge that connects downtown Nashville with Cumberland Park and LP Field, home of the Tennessee Titans Professional football team.

Breaking Through the Clouds

April 17, 2013: The morning started like most others. As usual, it was dark when I arrived at my shooting location. I waited for the sunrise, noticing it took longer than usual. Oh well, I thought, it’s going to be another cloudy morning with little or no color. As the sky overhead began to lighten, I could see a huge thick cloud bank in the eastern horizon – positioned exactly where the sun would appear.

I began to collect my gear while thinking about other shooting opportunities. Maybe the deer are out grazing – or maybe I can get some shots of the ducks landing in the cove to my right. No, I decided. It is too dark for my lens to capture any action shots. Let’s shoot some shots from different locations here on the point. The heavy cloud bank is mostly concentrated in the one area to the east. There’s a great view looking south towards Mt. Juliet, but no color. I fire off a few shots just for the record.

I checked the time on my cell phone – 6:11. Sunrise time according to my handy dandy cell phone app. And that cloud bank is so think – I guess I’ll pack up and go. I have lots to do back at the office and I learned early that it is pointless to stay when there is such a thick cloud coverage. But wait. There’s a bit of color but the cloud bank is in the way. Should I stay or go? That’s always the question.

The clouds overhead are gone – let’s give it a few more minutes, finish my coffee and then head back home.

6:20: More color showing now. And the sun rays shooting across the sky are awesome. Now if that cloud bank would thin out a bit more.

6:33: There it is!, what an awesome sight as the sun breaks through the clouds. I hope you agree that it was well worth the wait to capture this shot.

Misty Sunrise


Drive south on Sanders Ferry Road in Hendersonville, Tennessee about 5 miles and you’ll find the entrance to Sanders Ferry Park. The drive through the park is one-way, so loop around the park until you’re almost back to the entrance. On your right is a short drive down to the fishing pier. Standing at the pier looking out over the lake there are two small coves, one to your left and one to your right. Along the water’s edge of the cove to the right is a small trail worn by animals coming to the lake for water and the local disc golfers. About half way around this trail are a couple of great locations for sunrise photos.

This particular image I shot with my camera almost on the ground, mounted on Joby Gorillapod. A misty fog soon formed over the cove giving inspiration to my name for this print. Keeping a careful lookout for snakes and other critters, I settled in with my cup of coffee and waited for the sun. I think you’ll agree it was worth the wait.
