Around Cades Cove
Much of our shooting while in the Smokies was centered around Cades Cove. I’m not sure how many times we went around the loop, and explored the side roads too. Once a thriving, mountain and farming community it was easy to imagine how it was. In addition to the cabins, other structures and bears the big scenes offered some interesting subjects. I liked including the leading lines of the roads and fences to bring the viewer into the photograph and finally to the distant mountains. The cloudy, overcast light evokes a quiet mood where contrast is not a problem. We witnessed one colorful sunset with a nice tree in the foreground. I worked the scene in Photoshop but because of the uneven cloud pattern I was not able to get an image I felt was well-balanced. Sometimes we have to know when to put an image ‘away’ and after several attempts I knew it was time. And since I don’t believe in showing images I am less than happy with, you will not see that image here!
