On Top of Ol’ Smokey

The week before Easter Sue and I joined 84 photographers from Southwestern Ohio plus a few representing four other states, for a week in the Smokey Mountains. Organized by Julie Guenther, who has been doing this for around 18 years. Organized is not quite the word for everything she does. Scout leader, cat wrangler,  maybe facilitator. What a great time, as newbies we fell right in with fellow shooters! What did we shoot? Landscapes, rapids, waterfalls, wild life, flowers, settlers cabins (plus farms and churches), sunrises, sunsets, and full moon rising from the top of Eastern U.S. 2nd highest peak. Did I say we had a great time! My biggest disappointment was images of mother Bear and her cubs. The first encounter was photographing a black bear against a very light background, so give yourself some slack. But my second encounter I had my camera at too slow a speed and should have been able to adjust quickly. Thats why these trips are so important, shoot and learn!!
