Back in the Fall – Great Smoky Mountains

After a great trip to the Smoky mountains back in the spring, I returned in the fall with another group of photographers to explore the changes the season had brought to the landscape. The streams were running well after recent rains and the colors in the leaves were just starting to turn.

The lower elevations of Great Smoky Mountains National Park still held onto its green and I found this nice fern among the moss and mushrooms near the barn at Bud Ogle’s cabin.

Sunrise at Clingman’s Dome brought us an awesome surprise. The entire scene around us was filled with the low clouds and fog that gave the Smokies its name. As the morning continued, and the layer of covering below began to break up, the tops of the nearby mountain peaks appeared.
