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...

A Trail to the Sun

I often hear people comparing photography to golf, in that one moment of brilliance keeps you coming back again and again, and while I've never played golf, I get the sentiment.  One solid image sets you on a course to discover more.  Two weeks ago, amid my images of...

The Middle Prong Fan

Nature is a force to be reckoned with! You hear this statement most often when there's a big event like a hurricane or a tornado, but nature's might can be witnessed in smaller displays as well.  The cascade above, known to my photography friends and I as simply "the...

In to the Fog I Go

When you think of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, what comes to mind? For me, the list goes something like: vistas (layers of mountains), streams, historic buildings, wildlife, trails, and maybe even scenic roadways (they are in fact the most common ways...

Blooming Bee Balm

For everything that drives me nuts about social media, there are still some awesome things it can be used for, one of which is identifying flowers! This week I'm wrapping up my summer flower series with this little scene I found on the side of the road, up near...

Summer Flowers at Sunset

This summer I've been trying to make it to parts of the Great Smoky Mountains that I don't go to very often, just as a way to mix things up a bit.  One of the places I've found myself a few times is the Clingmans Dome area.  The high altitude has been a REALLY nice...

Rhodis by Thunderhead Prong

Have you ever found early success with something, been convinced you could do better, only then to find out maybe you can't?  Haha, me either!  🙂 Just kidding.  That's absolutely the story of this week's image. One of my favorite images from last year was this image...

I mentioned last week that one of the things I've worked on during the COVID days is flash photography, something I've not previously spent a lot of time on.  And like last week, this week's Picture of the Week is quite a bit different from what I typically post, but...

Classic Camaro in Downtown Knoxville

For the past several weeks I've been sharing some of the work I've done during the 'COVID days' - I guess at some point I have to stop calling it that because it's really just *life* at this point, right? - anyway, I'm continuing that this week and next, but changing...
