Wild Eagle Soars

This shot was taken using a NIKON D5000 at ISO 400, f/11, for 1/500sec

Wild Eagle Soars over Dollywood and the Mystery Mine.

If you’ve never been, Dollywood is quite the experience. It’s a small theme park nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and the scenery is just beautiful. A lot of theme parks try to transport you to different areas and times by changing the scenery and bringing in things that just are not native to the area in which the park is built. That is really not the case here.

During a recent trip here, while my son was playing on his “favorite playground” at his “favorite place” (he hasn’t made it to Disney World yet), I took a few shots of two of the roller coasters that are in this area of the park. The Mystery Mine and the newest coaster in the park, the Wild Eagle.

I was originally planning on making an HDR of this image, but even after the HDR was complete, the original 0EV was just fine, with the help of a few sliders in Adobe’s Lightroom.
