Fall in the Smokey's - 2019

Cades Cove

Mountain Color

In  early November  I went to The Great Smokey Mountains in Eastern Tennessee.  This location is a place I enjoy visiting at various times of the year.  On this trip I was hoping for and got the first snow of the year.   I did not see or capture any images of Wildlife on this trip.  My goal was simply to capture the landscape and the intimate details hidden within the Mountains.   

I have traveled all over the USA and I never seem to get tired of the awesome beauty in the mountains,  When I find myself above 4000 ft I come alive and spend all my time there seeking out images that tell a story of that place.  I find the quiet and calm that the mountains gives you brings an ever present sense of just how important nature is in our lives.  A cool breeze, the smell of the Pines and the sound of the mountains echoing across a valley...it just doesn't get any better than this.

First Snow

Foothills Parkway

Winter in the mountains is a special time.  The Foothills Parkway is located just North of Townsend, Tennessee.  On this trip, after the snow, the main mountain was closed and I headed out of the park and back toward home when I decided it  would be a great time to shoot there.  The Cold never really bothered me so the high altitudes and crisp snap of the breeze were all I needed to feel right at home.  The drive along the Parkway is peaceful and beautiful.  The colors of Fall were still glowing and the soft light along with the snow added a touch of awesome to the scene.
