We capture this New Orleans skyline in downtown area around dusk as the high rise building light came on and it created this nice reflections in the Mississippi River. There was stil a little color in the sky from the sunset just enough to gve it some pop over the cityscape with some oranges and pinks mingle with the dark clouds. This New Orlean skyline pano was taken from across the Mississippi River at dusk. The view of the city high rise buildings along the shore line makes for a nice image as the building reflect in the water shortly after sunset. New Orleans is the largest city in the state of Louisiana population of around 1.5 million people. The city attract tourist from all over the world with its many popular neighborhoods such as the famous French Quarters, Jackson Square and many more area of interest.

There are riverboats rides along the Mississippi River just some of the thing available to do in the city. Not to mention the wonderful architecture you see through out the city.
Oak Alley at Sunrise – This was a look into the past that has been frozen in time at our visit of Oak Alley Plantation this last year. To get the feel of the place, we stayed on the property in one of the freed slaves cottages on the property which really helped you get a feel of what life might of been like in the past. In these images we captured the great old oak trees at Oak Alley Plantation at sunrise including the mansion and the other great oaks which have been here for more than 300 years. The Oak Alley plantation landscape is really a beautiful place to visit with a great sense of history both the good and the bad as it pertains to slavery. Our visit to the Oak Alley plantation left us with a sense of what was like for all that live there from the one who lived in the Mansion to the families that were enslaves and work and lived on the property. The property was designated a National Historic Landmark for its architecture and landscaping, and for the agricultural innovation of grafting pecan trees, performed there in 1846–47 by an enslaved gardener.
This is an sunrise landscape image of the wonderful live oak trees at Oak Alley Plantation. These old live oak trees are known to be over 300 years old and they were there even before there was a plantation or house on the property, but no one seems to knows who planted them, but we are glad they did. The plantation runs along the side of Mississippi river in the community of Vacherie, St. James Parish, Louisiana, U.S. This plantation was planted with sugar cane by slaves who live in the southern US and years before the grand old mansion was built these tree were already in place and somehow they knew right where they needed to be for the walkway from the house to the mississippi river. The trees there are amazing and we wanted to show you can do a triptych or multiple panel image from one image on our site to add that punch to a room. There are several reasons you might want to do a mulitple frame image; it allow the image to cover more wall space than a single image, it has modern look, also a mulitple panel images add a unique look to a photo and will be a show stopper and add that wow factor to the room. Please contact us if your interested in one of the split images style of photos.
