Oshie's World

Life Through A Golden Eye

Asheville

TBT

Just a quick Throw Back Thursday post. We had a blast during our trip to Asheville last April. The Biltmore was awesome and we all had a great time. There were so many opportunities to make great photos. If only the weather had been a bit more cooperative the day we were there.

Here is one of my favorites of Oshie from the trip to the Biltmore House. He was pretty popular with the other tourists!

Lighting for this shot was terrible and I didn’t have a flash or tripod so I had to crank up the ISO resulting in a lot of noise in the image. Converting the image to black and white makes it usable and I actually really like the final results.

Is it bad that I am still messing around with photos taken in May?

Around The Estate

Here are just a few photos from our trip to the Biltmore Estate that I never got around to posting. I wish I had taken some more time with camera settings to prevent the blown out skies that were hard to recover. The overcast conditions didn’t help much either but I will chalk it up as a lesson learned. I need to slow myself down and think about a shot before I take it. Needless to say, the house and grounds are impressive.

Oshie At The Biltmore

I don’t believe I ever posted any of the photos of Oshie at the Biltmore House. He would have fit right in at the Estate with his little bow tie. I am sure he would have appreciated the high society living too. ┬áThis is the largest (or was) private home in the United States and has 250 rooms, 43 of which are bathrooms. One could easily get lost in there. It is still owned by descendants of George Vanderbilt and is open to the public year round. The setting is beautiful and Asheville is a fun location to explore and I would highly recommend checking it out.

The grounds were gorgeous and very dog friendly. If only the weather had been a bit nicer on this trip. It was hot and overcast for most of the day we spent at the Estate. There was even a little rain at one point. Hopefully we can make it back during cooler weather and do some more exploring with Oshie. There are so many excellent photo opportunities and the grounds are just pleasant to walk around.

Winter Garden

I was going through my Library in Lightroom and came across this photograph from our trip to the Biltmore Estate. Not the best composition but the detail of the ceiling in the winter garden was amazing. The winter garden was located right at the front of the house. You go in the massive front doors and it is off to the right separating the entrance to the house and the massive dining hall. I played around with the processing a bit and I like this one at the moment. I am sure at some point I will return to this image and want to change how it looks.

Beautiful wood and lighting. I wouldn’t relaxing in this garden during winter months.
