I am just back from a week in the Great Smokey Mountains, one of my favorite places especially in the fall! This year, no snow! Was a bit too warm for that but still got some great shots of the fall colors!
The elk were on the NC side of the park. They were very close and were going through some very interesting behaviors while we watched!
We had a lot of rain but did get some fog and great low lying clouds. We spent some time at various streams and even spent a morning with some elk.
The Great Smokey Mountains National Park is the busiest national park in the US but even though there were deer jams, turkey jams and even a bear jam with all the cars driving the loop, it is still worth the trip! We found a few out of the way places that were off the main road to shoot. But with some patience and good timing even this busy park can look desolate!
This is a destination that every photographer should shoot. And even non-photographers will enjoy the scenery!
