Allatoona Pass At Sunset
Autumn is my favorite time of year to explore new photographic locations. The colors, the smell in the air, and the perfect weather is so inspiring. I captured this photograph at Allatoona Pass Battlefield which is a hidden gem in the little lake-town that I live in. Allatoona Pass has tons of small peninsulas that provide great vantage points for secluded parts of the lake, and it’s a dream for photographers like me.
As you can see in this photograph, I found the perfect spot where the sunset hits the mountain with that perfect warm side-lighting that accentuates the beautiful Autumn colors. The magic of Golden Hour paired with the right scene and composition is what gives the “fairytale” look to a lot of my photos that people often ask me about.
Photography is all about learning how to bend the light to your will.
