I went out one drizzly weekend in October and took a series of Smoky Mountains photos of autumn leaves. They were taken on on various trails in the Smokies. The series became a signature collection of four, with the red sourwood leaf being the center of attraction.
The Red Leaf evokes the zen concept “all of Autumn in a single leaf.” The image has almost mystical qualities when seen in person, with a 3-D effect that has literally hundreds of people touching the picture each year to see if the leaf is curling off the page.
The Red Leaf is part of a set of 4 that I group together. The full set is shown in the image below, with the Birch Leaves in a Stream shown upper left, Maple Leaves on Moss upper right, and Sweet Gum Leaves lower right. The photos are mounted on frameless panels and hung very close to each other to form a very bold and colorful statement. Each of the panels is either 12×18″ (making a 24×36″ grouping) or 16×24″ (making a 32×48″ group).
Further details of sizes and pricing of the set or individual photos can be found on the How to Buy page.
If you are in the area, please consider a visit to see the complete display of Smoky Mountains Photos at the William Britten Gallery along the historic Arts and Crafts Trail on Glades Rd in Gatlinburg, TN.
