How about we try something a little different? Since this is the time of year that tends to attract people in droves to the mountains, how about we share some of our favorite fall foliage/scenery pics.

Here are some of my recent favorites:

I have not yet uploaded many of my fall pictures. One that I like was taken on a grouse hunting trip in early October:

This was taken at the head of the Cades Cove loop on 10/23/09:

...but this is a picture that my daughter gave me, framed, for Christmas. It was taken on my birthday in October when I went with her and my son to Walker Camp Prong for the day. It is a beautiful picture that I'll treasure forever. Thanks, Carrie.

Very nicely done everyone!!

Jason - you've started well with that D40! What lens are you using with it?

Scott Ė thank you for the compliment. I currently have a 18-55 and a 55-200. Just got a new tri-pod and a few other accessories for Christmas and canít wait to try them out.

Jason,

It is almost as addictive as fly fishing, there is always additional equipment to buy. You are doing well with your D40, welcome to the world of DSLR.

I also just noticed you were from Heiskell, I grew up just across I-75 from you. Also have known quite a few Elkins in that area during my years.

Jason - your exposure and framing are great! You definitely have an "eye" with your photographs - especially the leaves, stream, and turkey shots.

Those two pieces of glass may be 'kit lenses' but, as you can see from your own photos, they take excellent pictures when properly exposed and processed.

Like Travis said, taking photos is almost as addictive as the fishing part is! :smile: I love to capture my trips in pictures as so many of friends don't. It winds up that I am the one with all of the great memories in photos.

Can anyone recommend a scenic drive this weekend that won't be congested? I'm thinking about just driving up to Tremont, and then maybe down the Foothills Parkway. I'd like to drive up to Clingman's Dome, but I think it would be jammed pack. And I'm driving from Clinton, so getting there extra early is probably not an option.

Thanks!

Don't bother with the really high elevations. Dry leaves and 30 mph winds yesterday have left many of the trees up high with bare limbs. 2400-2800 ft. is good...by next week, the colors will probably be best at 1500-2000 ft. I'm guessing. I'm no tree expert though, so YMMV. ;)

I would skip the Smokies and hit the Plateau on the back-roads. Hit Wartburg up through the mountains and you will see wonderful pictures without the hassle...:smile:

great thread.....here are a few of my favs.....haven't been down this year yet but will be spending a ton of time in a few weeks after Abby's surgery. My daughter lives in Seymour and she thought staying down there would be the perfect therapy.....

cool elk photos! :biggrin:

Thanks RW. They were getting their groove on, and it was something to see. I try to go over every year in October for the rut, and they have yet to disappoint. This year I took my dad, who has never seen an elk, and he was like a kid in a candy store. We drove from front to back four times, and each time we would get out and stand by the truck and just watch and listen. When we left he asked what time I wanted to come back the next weekend. :biggrin: I told him I will take him back in May to see if we can catch the turkey doing their thing too.

It was truly a rewarding experience to see him having that much fun, and taking in the splendor of God's creation.

Good to see one without a collar, too. Born in the park, or are they taking them off of the tracking collars? ( I assume that's what they are?!) The bugling sound is haunting! We were there in October of 2009 I think and it was really cool to see such big animals so active - and so up-close and personal. ( Not "idiot" up-close and personal, you understand. ;) )
