“The Great Smoky Mountain National Park”


So when you can’t think of anything else to write about just pen a little post about the The Great Smoky Mountains to get things going.

For the first time in about ten years I didn’t get to travel to the Park because of shooting so many Portraits and Senior Pics, I guess that is a good thing but we sure missed traveling to this magical place.  The Fall colors here weren’t as nearly as colorful as in the past and from what I have heard the weren’t all that nice down there as well, but that’s little solace in knowing I wouldn’t get to hike and explore all the great places that make up the park.

I guess I will have to rekindle some old memories from past falls to get me thru my park withdrawal for now !!

This image was shot in the Elkmont section of the Park, the stream was lined with Maple trees and as the sun began to drop behind the mountains it bathed the entire valley in a warm golden light that transformed an already beautiful scene into a natural light show you don’t get to witness very often in a life time.

The Golden yellow light not only lit the trees but it also reflected off the water giving off a pleasant warm light the warmed not only my body but my soul as well, that’s the great thing about photography when you need to jar a memory all it takes is going thru some old files and you get live it all over again !!

Well its back to editing images and doing the not so glamorous jobs that nobody tells you about when you become a photographer 😉

Hope you have a great day and don’t forget to click on the image for best viewing !!
