Absolutely lovely photos Mole. You are fortunate to live and work in such a fine natural setting, but you also take great advantage of the bounty that surrounds you. And thank you for bringing us along on your rambles through the southern Appalachians.

Very nice series! I think I like the two HDR pictures - the conversion is beautiful, not over-done but it does add a bit to the dynamic range that the non HDR doesn't have. The first one especially is very nice. Your other pictures are excellent too.

Hans - thanks so much for the helpful feedback. Both the ones you preferred are the HDR versions. Am still learning HDR, have a long way to go...

Elliot - He sure is a cute little leafhopper, isn't he? Of course, the lily might not think so, since leafhoppers eat sap...

Armando - You are too kind! I will agree with amazing subjects - we in NE Tennessee are blessed with amazing natural diversity...

MtnMan - Thanks for your kind words - glad you enjoyed the trip. Have a number of photos from several more trips this past week, but too busy with park work to sort through them yet. Hope to be ready to post some more in a few days...

Harriet - Thanks for the input on the HDR. You are so skilled at this technique, and I appreciate your comments...

Tachikoma - Thanks so much!

Patty - Glad you enjoyed these!

All of these are fantastic, and the first sunrise photo is my favorite.

Beautiful series, Mole!
The Turks Cap is a real beauty.

Hey Spiderpig - welcome to the forums! Glad you enjoyed these. The sunrise was from the fire tower up on Holston Mt - an easy hike just on up the road from Blue Hole in Stony Creek. You'll have to check it out sometime soon. Will look forward to seeing some of your K7 photos as soon as you have time to post them!

GW - So glad you enjoyed these. Turk's Cap sure is a gorgeous flower!

Mole, I haven't been around for a while but each time I come by to have a look your photos truly impress me. You have likely been asked this before so please excuse me if I am being redundant but have you considered publishing a coffee table book of your photos?...If you did I would certainly have one in my home. It must be wonderful to be able to pursue an avocation you love in the course of fulfilling the duties of your vocation !! Judging from your photos your love of forestry, my guess is the park has in you an exemplary employee.........
