A few of my shots from last week’s trip to the Smokies…

Last weekend I attended a regional photography workshop put on by the National Association of Nature Photographers of America (NANPA) in Cherokee, on the North Carolina side of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I had explored the Tennessee side of the park, which is near Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, several times previously; but I was looking forward to spending several days on the eastern side this time around. There were a group of about 60 of us being led by five pros and guides: Bill Lea, Bill Campbell, Kevin Adams, Richard Day and Donna Eaton. I spent time with each one, and all were fantastic. Each instructor was very knowledgeable about the area, knew exactly where to take us to get great shots and gave great advise and shared extensively from their vast experience. I got some great images; now I just have to sit down and process them…
