I will use this page as a place to share more of my work then just the pictures I put in my blog posts. It should be easier for my viewers to come here and find more pictures. If you click on the picture you will see it full size. After each Gallery I will add a comment form. I would love to hear you suggestions and thoughts.
Cades Cove Summer 2016
I have always wanted to be at Cades Cove for sunrise. This year in late July we camped in Townsend for 5 days and made it to the cover every morning. Here are the pictures I took. I made them into a slide show with music on the Slideshows page.
Fall Creek Falls July 2016
This is our favorite place to camp. We go here every year to celebrate our anniversary. This time I got a couple of nice sunsets. I also tried night photography for the first time.
Blue Ridge Parkway June 2016
We began on trip on the parkway at Waynesville, NC. We stopped in Asheville and visited the North Carolina Arboretum. We hiked to Craggy Gardens, Crabtree Falls and Linville Falls. We stayed in Little Switzerland. We enjoyed the Moses Cone Memorial Park. We traveled back through Roan Mountain State Park and hiked to the bald at Carver's Gap.
Abrams Falls 2016
On June 30 Thomas and I made a trip to Cades Cove and hiked Abrams Falls. On July 11, 1981, 35 years ago, Thomas and I made our first hike together on the day we meant to Abrams Falls when we went with a group from our church. It was a lot easier then. Here are a few pictures I took.
Elkmont Early Spring 2016
Thomas and I did an easy hike up the Little River Trail in Elkmont. It was turning spring in the valley, but there was a heavy frost on the mountains.
Fall Creek Falls October
We love spending fall break at Fall Creek Falls. Our break was early this year so there was only the beginning of fall color.
Fall Creek Falls July
This is our favorite place to camp. There are pictures of sunset at Buzzard's Roost, the lake, the Big Falls, above Piney Falls, the Cascades, and the Campground. I am going to put them up in several slideshows in order to keep the orientation consistent.
Since there are several pictures that are very similar, please let me know which ones are your favorites. You comments are greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to look at my pictures. I hope they brought you some enjoyment.
Cades Cove in June
These pictures were taken in early June on a trip with some friends from the Leconte Photographic Society, my camera club. Mostly they are pictures of the big tree across from the Lawson place. I just love this tree. This time I tried taking pictures with my wide angle lens to get a new perspective.
Cades Cove and Tremont in Spring
These pictures were taken in May. It was beautiful day with clear, blue skies and fresh, bright green of new foliage.
These pictures were taken on a recent hike to Big Creek area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It is off of I40 in North Carolina. Along the way there are 2 falls, Midnight Hole and Mouse Creek Falls.
