Cades Cove Morning is a fairly new addition to the William Britten Gallery, taken from Hyatt Lane in the Cades Cove section of the Smoky Mountains. This photo was taken just after 7:00, when the morning was bathed in a golden, syrupy light, and the mist still lingering on the valley floor.
This photo draws the viewer into the scene with a series of triangles along the lower part. Low-angled sunlight creates dramatic shadows and contrast. The mist scooting along the valley floor is just icing on the cake! As often happens with a successful photo, conditions were perfect on this day. I went back just a few days later to see if I could improve on the photo, but the Park Service had trimmed the grass around the fence posts! And there was no mist on the second day.
Cades Cove Morning is offered in all sizes. Details of sizes and pricing can be found on at the bottom of the How to Buy page.
