Cable Mill at Cades Cove

Rain saturates color and textures of Cable Mill at Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  I love shooting in rain for this reason. The character and detail can’t be replicated in post processing.  Inclement weather also reduces the human population at popular photo destinations – always a plus for finding peace in nature.  I used a wide angle Nikkor 16-35mm lens to capture the foreground mill stones, pulling the viewer through the scene while under an umbrella and thankful to have this scene to myself even for a brief moment…

Easier said than done sometimes.  On a recent trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park I was amongst 50+ tripod wielding photographers all focused on the impending sunset at Clingman’s Dome.  Trying to find peace in such a crowd can be tough and often times I find myself looking for an escape.  I try to remember to look away from the obvious and see what others pass by.  I did manage to get my series of sunset images but I never forgot this tattered and lonely spruce waiting behind me – and yes she was still there.   As I turned to compose the image I found myself alone and it actually felt good.  Remember to take time and look back – you may just find what you’re looking for…
