A Tree in Cades Cove


A few talented friends and I descended on Great Smokey National Park last week. Many photos were taken, much Tennessee Barbeque was consumed and more than a few local IPAs were consumed. That, my friends, is the formula for an epic photography trip!

We photographed the park through last of the Autumn colors, torrential rain and even saw Winter’s first snow grace the tops of the mountains. I have many, many images to share and some interesting context to add. I thought I’d start with this one.

This image was captured in Cades Cove, one of the most visited parts of the Park. Cades Cove is a valley in the park that you can explore over a 7 mile one-way auto road. Normally (in-season and in good weather) The road is bumber-to-bumper and can take hours to get through. On this day however, it was pouring rain and just barely off-season, so we could move pretty freely. That was helpful. We saw this lonely looking tree and decided to stop and photograph it. In the pouring rain.
