We arrived on Friday for our much-anticipated annual visit to the Great Smoky Mountains. It was cold the first day, low 30’s in the morning but making it into the mid 40’s by mid day. Luckily as the days progress thing are slowing warming to where you can work with only a light jacket.
On our first working day (Saturday) we spent all morning at Roaring Forks shooting the creeks and streams and being overcast didn’t hurt a bit. As most of you already know this is a subject that is high on my list. There’s a sense of calm that comes over me when I have a chance to work around water.
We finished the morning with breakfast at the Log Cabin Pancake House and a mid-day break before heading back out to shoot at Morton’s Overlook for sunset. We left early making an afternoon of it by taking a picnic dinner that we enjoyed on the mountain side while we waited. Also, I forgot to mention that we had two good friends (Jerry and George) join us spending the time chatting and storytelling which in my book is time well spent.
Stay tuned as I’ll do my best to keep the ramblings going for the coming week.
