POTW: Sunrise in East Tennessee

Sunrise in East Tennessee

   I'm constantly amazed at how good light changes things… I know, I say this a lot.  I should be over the amazement by now, but I'm not.

   In the middle of November I met up with some friends to do a sunrise shoot up on Foothills Parkway.  Admittedly, most of the color in the trees was gone, especially up on the mountain sides, and so I wasn't expecting anything fantastic… unless of course some clouds rolled in… which didn't happen.  We stood around any way and just as sun popped up over the mountains, all the oak trees that were still holding on to their leaves lit up like fire!  It was really neat to watch.  I also love watching the light rays begin to filter down through the valleys.  The light extends like fingers until all the shadows are gone.  Cool stuff!

POTW: Avent Cabin

Avent Cabin

    If you've hung around the Smoky Mountains much at all, you've probably noticed that there are lots of hidden gems tucked away in the park.  Maybe its a waterfall, or a "secret" patch of wild flowers… it seems like if you talk to the right people, there is always something cool just right out of view.  Avent Cabin is one such gem.

    Jakes Creek Trail heads out of Elkmont (which, speaking of gems…) and a few miles up, there is a little deer trail that heads down to the right, ultimately leading over a creek and up to this cabin.  I actually learned about this cabin while doing one of the Tremont Scavenger Hunts, else I don't know that I would have ever known it was there.  If you ever need a quiet place to find inspiration… this is the place!
