Smoky Mountain Trillium

Here are some more recent images I was able to capture on trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. These shots are all 0f Trillium which seemed to have had a banner year in the Park, I have never seen so many in bloom as I did this year.

There are many varieties of Trillium that grow in the park but I was only able to capture a few of the species on this recent trip, the two kinds of Trillium here are the Large flowering and Catesby’s Trillium.

I photographed the Large Flowering Trillium on the Cove Hardwood Nature Trail and the Catesby’s Trillium was photographed on the trail going into White Oak Sinks. White Oak Sinks is another great trail for viewing and photographing wildflowers in the park.

It was a great trip and I am happy to be able to  share some of my experiences and photography with you, thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

  2. Those are really beautiful! They are among my favorite flowers and they had a good year here too. We don’t have those two species, but we have the Pacific Trillium.

  3. I do love Trilliums, having first met them in Vermont. These are excellent photos. I’m regretting not taking wildflower photos this year.

  4. I missed them this year as they bloomed during one of the rainiest June’s every in upstate NY and did not last long. You have captured these two in their dew/rain drop covered glory.

  5. I appreciate your like of my Trail to the River blog. I’m a little too far south to be able to appreciate the Trilliums in the wild but can certainly appreciate your excellent shots of the flower.
