Tennessee Day 3

Today we decided to skip sunrise. The weather forecast was for clear skies and we needed some rest so instead we met at 7:00 and headed to breakfast. After a nice breakfast at The Riverstone Cafe, we headed for the Green Brier School House and made some images there. It was a total blue sky day with harsh sunlight so we were challenging ourselves to find appropriate material to shoot all day. After the school house we headed to the Bud Ogle house in Roaring Fork and goofed off there with some HDR and Lensbaby shots. We stopped in the Greenbrier area looking for the Dwarf Iris, we saw last year and made some images there. On the way back I noticed some wonderful reflections of the spring green foliage and blue sky in the river so we pulled off and made some shots. Now its time to get ready for tomorrow and hopefully a nice sunrise shoot from the Foothills Parkway overlooks.


  1. Another nice set of images. You made good use of the day. I especially like the water patterns.

  2. Excellent set of images Karen. How bad is the road construction?

  3. Thanks Nancy another long day today. Ed, Cades Cove will open this weekend, Tremont is open, Roaring Fork is closed, but you can access the Bud Ogle Cabin. Greenbrier is open, the Green Brier School is accessible, Clingmans Dome Road is closed, but all of 441 is open, Foothills Parkway is open, so we are working around that info, with plenty to do.
