And it won't go away this year either! There are some photos from the Smokies over the recent weeks. And more snow is falling right now with another blast headed this way next week. Not something we are used to down here this much!

Mortons Overlook in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, looking down into the valley where Gatlinburg, TN is located which is under the layer of clouds. This was actually after the sun went down and a full moon was illuminating the hoar frost awesomely. About a 30 sec exposure.

Same overlook in GSMNP and same time.

Mingo Falls in Cherokee,NC. There was more snow on the trail to it than on the falls.

Mingus Mill, GSMNP

Same Mill, only in January during a massive flood that wiped out a few of the roads we frequent. 12" of rain in 2 days. That much in snow would have been better!

All very nice but that last one needs to be framed and put on a wall.

And yet again. Another vote for #1 and last one, even though all are beautifully done.

Brilliant set. All are great, but I am going against the trend here and admit to having a preference for # 2. I love the colour of the tail lights and centre line marking against the beautiful blacks and whites of the that stunning road. I also like the line of tail-lights following the line of the fence (I guess there would be trouble if they didn't). The last one would be my second choice.

I second that; fabuloous set, all in all .... wow

Been away for a while and I just found this super set. All incredible. The one with the slow exposure showing the car lights is showing great contrast with the snow. The last one is the best. Again, good job with the slow exposure.

What a beautiful set. Hard to pick a favorite, but I leaning towards the first and last one.

Also should consider a series of Christmas cards too! :)
I like the roadway one with the tail lights adding the colour contrast. And as is mentioned here on several occasions, that last one is the money shot for me!

Sorry I missed these on the first pass through... I too like the set but number 2 with that bright red streak in an otherwise grey scene is awesome to me. Love it! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Love the first and last images the best. The first one is almost mono, great shots.

Excellent set! Love them all. Could easily go on about something I like in every shot. Particularly like the comp and framing in that 4th shot.
