Finally - The Autumn Shot I've always wanted
This autumn season has been a bit frustrating for me this year. Colors have not looked all that bright. Peak times in locations has been more difficult to find as well. I've driven a lot of miles this season with not a lot of quality photos I'd been hoping for. I've been waiting to go to the Smokys. From reading posts on Flickr, I heard the Tremont area was looking good. So a friend and I headed there last Thursday. We drove across the Park on 441 but there wasn't any real good color. Spotty at best. As we started down heading toward Gatlinburg, the colors looked much more promising. Our spirits began to lift. We thought we'd try Cade's Cove since it was mid-afternoon. Wow - it was a awful long line of cars meandering around the road. We cut our losses and cut across on Sparks Lane and headed for Tremont. Great decision. The Tremont area was just a bit past peak but still fantastic. This photo is taken at a very popular of the Park just before the parking lot at the end of the road. This wide well rounded boulder, when it has good water flow, is spectacular to photograph. Most compositions are shot from atop the boulder and I shot there also. This photo was taken just a bit downstream and I think it turned out really well IMOH. : )
I'll still be hunting for last remaining bits of color this coming week hoping to find some good photos. I hope your fall photo season provided you with some real wall-hangers.
