Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the Deity to be a source of delight.
--John Ruskin (1819-1900) English Writer
This shot was taken Saturday at 6:45 am from the top of South Holston Dam outside of Bristol, TN. To soften the clouds and still the waters of South Holston Lake, I left the shutter open for 25 seconds.
Directions: From the intersection of routes 394 and 421 south of Bristol, continue 2.9 miles south on 421 (toward Shady Valley). Turn right onto Emmett Road/Holston View Dam Road. Continue for 1.6 miles (bear right at the fork) and you'll see the Osceola Island/Weir Dam recreation area on your left. Continue on Holston Dam View Road for another 2 miles to the top of the dam. Beautiful views!
