Have I mentioned yet how beautiful this fall was here in East Tennessee?  I think I have – maybe like four times now?  😉  One of the things that I’ve done the past several years during the fall is help lead the fall photography workshop that the Tremont Institute hosts, inside the Great Smoky Mountains.  It’s such a fun time, and the group of photographers I lead with have truly become an extension of my family.  I say all that to say, I actually captured this image one morning while we were out in the field.  The one benefit to this particular workshop, both in the spring and the fall, is we get to go into Cades Cove one morning for sunrise before the park actually opens, which is just amazing (if you’d ever like to join us, here’s a link to the workshops)!  On this outing myself and several students made our way to the Dan Lawson cabin and historical structures, and had an absolute blast there.  The fog was coming and going and with it the light was changing on a regular enough basis so as to make it really interesting.  As you can see the colors around the cabin were great as well, adding to the beauty.

If you’ve been around my blog for a while you’ve seen a couple different iterations of this composition of Dan Lawson’s old smokehouse.  I just love the character the old structure has; such a neat spot.  That cabin in particular has such an awesome view that I can’t help but wonder what it would have been like to have lived there.  What a different life to my own it would have been though!

More next week!
