Madison Indiana Photography

Wildflowers of the Smoky Mountains

Here are a few more images from a recent trip to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, I love traveling to this special place not only for the wildflowers but for the vast variety of subjects you can photograph at this special place.  Landscapes, macros, wildlife and many other opportunities await the photographer traveling thru the Southern Appalachian Mountains, you can never run out of subjects or seasons in this photographers paradise.

So here are a couple more examples of the many wildflowers that grow in the Smoky Mountains, the first is the Dwarf Crested Iris and the other two being Wild Columbine.

If you get an opportunity try traveling to the Smokies and make sure you get out and hike and view and photograph the beautiful subjects that call this special place home. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

  1. Wow….I love those shots. They just jump off the page! One of the toughest problems I have at this mag is getting the m to hold still for their portrait! Beautiful work.

  4. Especially like that Dwarf Crested Iris photo–they are so little and close to the ground that they are difficult to photograph.

    • Thanks Anita, they can tough to shoot sometimes, but well worth the effort.
