Nikon D50 | SIGMA 50-500 f/4.5-6.3DG lens (handheld)
I continue to edit older images shot a year ago, but I think these two frames of SE owls are worth a look, maybe.

There are millions of images in the world of this grand place. Receiving over 12 million visitors per year, it easily takes the title of most visited national park in the United States.
Despite the high visitor count, you won't find many, if any, images from an aerial perspective, because flying drones from within the national park is strictly prohibited. However, with a little planning and input from the good folks at FAA, almost anything can be approved.
Taken with a small UAV sporting a 20mp Hasselblad camera, this image shows the beautifully folded landscape that makes up much of southern Appalachia. Looking at the image, it's hard to believe such magnificent mountains were once part of the sea floor.
If you ever get the chance to explore this great land, I highly recommend it. I grew up in these parts, and can assure you there are many treasures to behold.
Enjoy and Mahalo for viewing!
