The Smokies Being the Smokies



As we finished our first full day of shooting with the group, a gloomy, overcast, rainy, and great day got even better.  Near the end of the day, we began to see blue sky and the sun came out, basking the iconic scene on Sparks Lane with its golden glow.  Then, on the way out, we rounded the corner and found the ground fog rising around this wonderful lone tree.  The Smokies deliver yet again.

    Spectacular, John!!!! You definitely captured the essence of Cades Cove with this shot. I’m feeling very envious right now.

    I’m terribly jealous, John. What a beautiful capture and b/w image as a result.
