Smoky Mountain National Park

I've been fortunate to have been invited on a few trips recently as well as had some nice lenses loaned to me to try out, so hopefully I might have some different shots if things turn out well. Here is a photo from a Smoky Mountain trip with family members last week, we were limited on the amount of walking that could be done but I found this stream by the roadside. Don't ask me the name, but when you come off the mountain from Newfound Gap coming back to Gatlinburg, you'll do a couple of sharp hairpin curves and this is to the right of one of the curves. Funny thing, where the stream runs on the downhill side of the road at this very location is the site of a photograph of mine from the 1984 that I gave to an aunt of mine. It hung on her wall until her death and then was returned to me decades later. It won an Honorable Mention at the local camera club year end competition of 1983 but I never cared much for the print at all. This photograph, though, I like fairly well. Goes to show that a person does improve some even if it does take nearly 30 years to do it. hahahaha!

For a glimpse of the past, here is a link to a pdf version of the January 1984 Ohio Valley Camera Club newsletter that I coauthored with Larry Rees for a a few years.
