” Smokey Mountain Trillium “

Took a long weekend down to the Smokies a couple of weeks ago, to get some of the beautiful wildflowers that bloom so profusely there, I came across this scene off the Little Pigeon River.

It was getting very close to dark which gave it this blue color and mood, I could tell by the footprints that this subject had been shot pretty frequently so if you see the same shot somewhere on the web I promise I didn’t steal it !!

  3. Its a very nice image, peaceful & serene. I however feel that the color temperature is a little low for the shot. A warming filter, or a Moose Filter could have helped.

  7. I love this – the blue cast is an interesting way of offering a calming tone to the photograph. I also agree with Monarch it is perfectly framed. I adore your little violets as well in the photograph. (I’m really happy you tossed this up… I keep wondering where it is I should seek out this elusive trillium and at least now I have an idea of the typical area they shoot up in.) Beautiful shot Bernie.

  10. Excellent work, Bernie. Isn’t it funny how low light can defeat you at times, and then at other times give you effects like this? Amazing.

  17. Bernie, I love the thought you put into framing this image. The water in the background adds to the beauty of these amazing wildflowers. We have trillium in the Northwest, also, but I don’t run into them very often. The first time I saw them, we were on a trail through a stretch of redwoods on the coast. They look exotic!

  18. I like the framing in this shot and the combination of waterfalls + flowers. The blue cast does bother me a bit though. You should be able to remove it using the RAW file.
