Fall, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Fall painted such a gorgeous landscape as I maneuvered my way around every twist and turn and bend in the road as I slowly made my way toward Newfound Gap in Great Smoky Mountains National Park in late October.
All along the road the landscape was blanketed in beautiful oranges and yellows and reds, as well as the remains of the dead trees which fell victim to the ash borer. It is sad that there are so many dead trees that dotted the landscape, but simply stunning to see the contrast of colors around them. A simple effect in my software brought more detail to the scene. ENJOY!


  1. Only Mother Nature could paint such a glorious scene and enhanced by the practiced photographers eye. Well done Carol.

  2. It is sad to see the trees die but as you say it adds a certain beauty.
