This past Monday (Dec 27th), I drove the family up to Townsend to see the snow. When we left Knoxville, The Park Road Conditions Report was that all roads were closed. So, we stopped by LRO to waste some time and pick up some gear. We then took off up the road and found that Laurel Creek Rd had just been opened, so we continued on to Cades Cove. The loop road was closed, but it didn't stop us nor a few other people from getting out and exploring in the area. Below are a few pics from that day:

Buckeye,

Thank you.

I was using my Nikon D40, with a Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 EX lens, and a Nikon SB-400 flash. All pics were handheld except for the stream shots. I know some people think that the Sigma's, Tamron's, and Tokina's are cheap. However, this Sigma scored very comparable to the Nikon 17-55mm, that is well over $1000, in every review I read. All my other lenses are Nikon, but I use this one probably 80% of the time. I highly recommend it to anyone searching for something in that range.

I agree....I have a Tamron used on my D90 that went to Africa with me and it was a terrific lens......that f/2.8 of yours is the ticket, can't go wrong with alot of glass....
