7 Days in the Smoky Mountains and Cades Cove – pure thrill.  The incredible light, superb lush green of fresh spring leaves, beautiful wild flowers and dogwood trees that were exceptional.  Rivers and streams flowing pristine water, moss covered rocks and the occasional mist made for some great photography.  The participants were fantastic and we all had a lot of fun.  Yes, days were long 4:30 AM wake-up and late evening bedtimes were worth it – every bit of it.

Here are a few comments (Audio) from some of the wonderful participants.  Click on the links to listen:




Many images were captured – this is one of my favorites.  Captured on the last day – Sparks Lane – all to ourselves and just two other photographers.  Most photographers are under the impression that Cades Cove is closed on Friday – not true, not in the spring.
