Gob-smacked, to use some of England's vernacular. Wonderful series - especially the first shot of the sunrise.

Bock - Thanks! Glad you enjoyed these!

Tony - I am indeed blessed to live & work in such a great place! Body used in these (and all my photos) is Pentax K-M.

NMR - Thanks so much!

Ronny - Thanks! You'll have to come visit sometime...

GW - Glad you liked them. Will you be coming back this way sometime this autumn? It's not over yet!!

Zuken - You are too kind. Glad you enjoyed these.

BigDawg - Glad to help! Hope you are fully recovered from the "montezuma's revenge!"

Gumnut - Holston Fire Tower is about 100 feet tall, and is perched on a knob that is about 4200 feet above sea level. I have posted some photos of it here before, but can't find the old posting right now...

Monza - Glad you are surviving the extreme winter (and also glad it's not here!) Interesting about the brief autumnal tints.

Keith - Thanks - it is indeed great scenery in East Tennessee these days!

Frogfish - Thanks so much - so glad you enjoyed these!

I guess the next question is - what will it be like in Jan/Feb? No doubt stunning and beautiful but do you get to enjoy it or are you just too damn cold???

Love the sunrise pictures - very moody. The milkweed pods show an "all-in-one" sequence of opening very nicely - nice find.

Keith - we do get winter, but not severe winters. And it is indeed quite beautiful here in the winter (you can search some of my old posts from last winter...) Remember - there's not such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!

Penolta - Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed these - I was also very pleased to stumble upon that milkweed sequence...

Sorry to be late commenting, but these are awesome!

I haven't seen a Praying Mantis for a long time up here. I did see one in Oz this spring but it was in our hotel corridor on a wall and would have been a horrid shot.

I miss you!!! Thanks for all these amazing pictures. I love the sunrise ones with all the mist. And of course the sugar maple ones. It has been a beautiful fall thus far hasn't it!!

Lou - Glad you enjoyed these! We are still seeing a fair number of mantids (both Praying & Carolina), but frosts expected soon...
