Everyone loves to get out and drive in the Smoky Mountains during the autumn leaf season in October. It’s all about sensory overload. The colors flying by, the smells of dry leaves, the sensation of getting down the road and getting away from it all. A stunning time to take a few photographs.
Unfortunately, we’re all out there looking for this sensation at the same time, and the traffic creates a slow-motion crawl, rather than a zip to freedom. I get out very early. The picture above, where I set my camera on the pavement, would have gotten me flattened later in the day!
After your drive, please stop in and visit me to see the complete display of Smoky Mountain Photographs at the William Britten Gallery along the historic Arts and Crafts Trail on Glades Road in Gatlinburg, TN. And for one more week, until October 23rd, I will also have a display at the Craftsmen’s Fair at the Convention Center in downtown Gatlinburg.
