The Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Mist in the Smoky Mountains

GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK

I have wanted to visit the Great Smoky Mountains since childhood. This mountainous region seemed magical to me. A few years ago I had the chance to go to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee with a small group of photographers. It was a cold, wet, rainy April but it didn’t matter to us, as we were taken with the beauty that surrounded us.  We were treated with the special unveiling of  warm springtime greens set against the darker greens of evergreens, rushing waters of the Roaring Fork River and numerous streams and rivers, and misty scenes each morning and one amazing evening sunset. These granddaddy mountains and their surrounding scenery offer a subtle beauty that is so peaceful. I hope you enjoy a small selection of my images from this memorable visit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I hope to go back to see many of the areas that I missed on this first visit.
