Default Fog & Sun & Water

Have enjoyed many days of cool morning fogs here in the East Tennessee hills lately - perfect weather for working outdoors, and great for photo opportunities as well!

Isn't it amazing how a bit of fog can transform an "ordinary" landscape!

And also make you notice the often-overlooked details...

Fog and damp look especially fine along the rivers - here's a view of a rather foggy sunrise over the Holston River near McPheeter's Bend in nearby Hawkins County Tennessee.

(any preference between these two views?)

Up above the riverbend is Bays Mt Park. The land here is much drier (mostly sandstone) and so less shrouded by fogs.

Despite the abundant sun & rain, ferns are fading up in the mountains (most of our native ferns can't take the cold...)

But the little lake up at Bays Mt is still rich in autumnal tints (both on the shoreline and in the water!)

Wet or dry, it's been a fine autumn outdoors here in East Tennessee! Hope you enjoyed these glimpses, and that you'll share your comments & critique.

I like them all, as always for your work, but the first eight (horizontal) and the last four really grab me, because I can see a couple of collages right there on the wall beside my desk, then I can travel every day to these places of indescribable beauty. Somewhere in Tennessee there has got to be a gallery showing these marvelous images you produce. We on this forum are truly fortunate that you walk in areas others of us cannot, and that you return with photos which never fail to humble and inspire us. Well, perhaps I should not speak for others, but that is how I feel.
