We are enjoying some much-needed rain today, but looking forward to more clear days in the East Tennessee mountains. Hope to "take you along" on another hike soon.

Thanks for any comments, critique & suggestions!

Love the first photo, Mole! Great work in balancing foreground, background, and all!

I never tire of your photos, Mole.
I always feel this tremendous envy knowing you get to enjoy this every day, That is so unfair!
Something about the Mt Myrtle shot is exceptionally appealing, so real looking!
Very nice series, sir.

As always, these are magnificent photos, Mole. You live in a stunning corner of our world, you appreciate it, and you share it very generously with us. I agree with the previous posters -- all photos are great, but the mountain Myrtle really catches my eye!

Ned - Thanks so much. That view of the mountain meadow and the distant mountains is one of my favorites too. Glad you liked the balance!

GW - I am indeed blessed to live in a beautiful corner of Creation. No need for photographic skills, just close my eyes, point, and click! (well, maybe I do open my eyes sometimes...) How soon will you be back to enjoy all this great scenery?

Dr. C - So glad you enjoyed these!

MtnMan - Thanks for your very kind words! The myrtle is a lovely little plant, is't it? It's also tiny - at a quick glance, you might think it was a moss with a few white specks mixed in!

Kevin - Thanks! Glad you liked them!

NMR - That caterpillar sure was a cute poser! I do have a macro lens - an old Sigma 105 - the one lacking the digital coating. It was a lot cheaper than the newer version, but sometimes has some problems with reflections off the sensor. On this hike though, it was not in the daypack (I need to get a bigger pack!!). These macros (caterpillar as well as myrtle) were taken with an old Pentax A35-105, with a Raynox 150 clipped on.
