Cabin Fever


The cabins along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail posted last month were just the tip of the iceberg! Even though I did my research on the Smokies I was surprised at just how many log cabins and other structures there were. We made several stops along the Cades Cove Loop Road and went exploring for compositions. Near the ranger station on the North Carolina side there was a complete log farm, with a house, barn and other buildings where we explored in the morning light before other tourists ventured out. For variety I converted several of these images to monochrome while others seemed to work best in color. I enjoyed the opportunity to photograph these cabins that fit in so well with the environment. Here are some favorites:

    Hey ‘D’ …I got the fever to find old cabins and take some pics now. Love the b/w treatment you gave the first ones…I think it brings the texture in the wood out.

    Great photographs , you have an artist’s eye. I would like to use “Cabin Door” and “Cabin Light” for pencil drawing reference. I don’t sell my work I just toss them or give them away.
