My 5 Favorite Photos of the Decade, 2010 – 2019

For those of you have followed along with this blog for a while, you'll certainly know that part of my year-end tradition is looking back at the photos I've taken for the year, and choosing my 5 favorites.  I started this tradition back in 2015 (if you want to know the "why" behind the practice, check out that post) and I enjoyed it so much that I have since gone back and picked favorites for every year all the way back to 2010.  Well, with this year being the start of a new decade, I wanted to pause one more time to look back - not at the previous year, but the last decade - and I hope...

Cul-Car-Mac Falls – Prettiest Falls in Tennessee?

**These falls are on private property** I've been talking over the last several weeks about what all I've been photographing since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic (or as I've been referring to them, the COVID days), while not really being able to travel a whole...

A Blanket of Clouds

Over the last few weeks I've talked about some of the exploring I did in the area while everything was locked down, and while I did try to get out routinely, my go to place was where this image was taken, my old standby Foothills Parkway.  If you've followed along...

Late Light on Gee Creek

Let me start this week's post by saying thank you to everyone for the kind comments and likes on last week's images across social media.  Those were fun images to capture and share, and I'm glad so many people enjoyed them.  The Neowise comet was definitely something...

Neowise Comet Above the Smoky Mountains

Curve ball time! 🙂 I initially had something else planned for this week, however as 2020 has taught us so far... there are no rules.  So, this week's Picture of the Week is literally from this week (POTW is generally running weeks, if not months, behind real time),...

Mountain Laurels at Sunrise

Last week I started a series on the images I've taken since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lock down, and this week we continue that.  During much of the lock down period, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was also closed, and if you have...

Spring on Citico Creek

Well happy Sunday everyone! Prior to starting my series on Singapore, I shared a few images I had collected from around here in East Tennessee.  That was from very early on in the lockdown period and of course I had no idea at that point just how different this year...

The Jewel of Singapore

Happy Father's Day everyone! This week I'm wrapping up my series on Singapore, and we're going to step away from Asia for a while altogether, but I wanted to end with this image, because it's frankly one of the wildest things I've ever seen.  Allow me to explain....

Singapore’s Chinatown

This past year when I visited Singapore, I was a bit worried I wouldn't get any pictures outside (or much of anywhere) because of all the rain.  It was absolutely pouring the rain when I landed, and continued to do so for the first few days I was there.  One evening...
