Fall in the Smokys 2012

Fall is a favorite time to go - anywhere! But, especially to those special places in our National Parks. Changing elevations bring the colors of the leaves in different places. Right now at the first part of November there is snow on the ground - as much as 3 feet I am told. I was in the park when the this snow began to fall on October 28. But, first I shot this photograph on the Tennessee side of the mountains. At lower elevations that day you could find green leaves in some places and at upper elevations the leaves had already fallen and only tree branches remained for the most part. Even in November there may be colorful  leaves that remain on the trees in some places right up until Thanksgiving. Last year I took photos of colored leaves in snow in the middle of November. After November Beech trees keep their golden brown leaves all winter long. So, there is an opportunity to photograph them among bare surrounding trees all winter long even with snow on the ground. Copies of this photo may be purchased. So, if you are interested please don't hesitate to contact me and we can discuss your needs.
