Picture of the Week

A picture a week from around town, or around the world!

Worli Fishing Village – Mumbai

I mentioned in my 5 Favorite Photos post a few weeks ago that while I did get to travel a little bit last year, with the exception of our annual family beach trip, none of those photos ever made it to Picture of the Week.  There were probably multiple reasons for...

Sunrise over Knoxville

Sunrise over Knoxville

Well anyone who knows me knows I'm special ( 🙂 ) but I now have proof.  I have officially joined the estimated 15% of Americans who have had COVID-19.  I got my positive test result back yesterday, but frankly I was going to be shocked if I didn't have it.  Thursday...

A Clingmans Dome Sunrise

A Clingmans Dome Sunrise

Don't always trust the apps. Earlier in 2020 I went up to Clingmans Dome to try to capture the Neowise comet, and it seems every time I go up there, I ask myself why I don't go more often.  One reason is that it just takes so long to get up there (about an hour and a...

My 5 Favorite Photos from 2020

My 5 Favorite Photos from 2020

It's my favorite post of the year! Wow... 2020, right?  What can be said... what needs to be said.  Frankly, I'm not even sure.  2020 has been a challenging year, and those challenges are no doubt going to follow us into 2021.  Even as we've been talking about "the...

Well Merry (belated) Christmas everyone, and let me go ahead and say an early Happy New Year as well while I'm at it!  I hope you all had a nice, albeit likely different, Christmas this year, and I hope you got to see at least some of your family.  Here in East...

Black Bear in Fall Colors

I don't always photograph wildlife... but when I do, it's by sheer luck. I think basically every time I post a wildlife picture I feel the need to also declare that I'm not a wildlife photographer.  I do enjoy photographing them (to an extent) and watching them, but...

2020 Autumn Stream Scene Extravaganza

2020 Autumn Stream Scene Extravaganza

Y'all are going to laugh when I say this, but there was a day earlier this fall when I specifically remember thinking, "Man, I haven't gotten *squat* for stream scenes this fall!".  Clearly I hadn't stopped to take stock of what all I had captured this year.  There is...

And Then the Clouds Broke

And Then the Clouds Broke

Welcome to December everyone!  Its hard to believe we're already in the last month of the year.  At times this year has seemed to creep by, and at others it seemed to be in fast forward! This week's Picture of the Week was shot on a morning that was an exercise in...

Double Falls in Autumn Glory

Double Falls in Autumn Glory

There are places in the Smokies that I go back to, over and over.  Sometimes I do this because there is just such a variety of subjects and potential conditions that it warrants a lot of visits (like the Foothills Parkway, for example).  Sometimes it's simply because...

Autumn Stairway

Autumn Stairway

I kicked off my fall color series last week, commenting on the fact of how many shooting days we'd had this fall.  I was convinced at the time that the shooting was over with last Sunday because of all the wind we were having, but just this morning I was shooting...
