I am often asked where I’ll be shooting, and when. The “when” has a number of variables, mostly weather. Odds are, if the weather is good, I’ll be out there at least a couple of afternoons during the week, and one full day on the weekend (but sometimes more). Best thing to do is follow the Suck Creek Photos Facebook page, where I always post when I’m going to be out.
Now, the “where” is easier. My two favorite spots are The Turnback, which is the sharp hairpin turn on the back of the mountain; and Holloway’s Curve, which is a full, 180-degree curve as you start down the back of the mountain. But I do shoot at other places, most notably, Slayer Rock (so named because the “Slayer” band logo is graffitied here more than 20 years ago). The field across the highway is also where I found my little cat, Snack Panther. When I’m at Slayer Rock, I can be on either side of the road (at the pull off, or in the field), and I usually bounce from one side to the other. There’s also The Cascades, which is the straightaway right before Prentice Cooper, and the Rock Wall, which is a sweeping curve about halfway down the Chattanooga side of the mountain.
Come see me!
