Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee
This past April, we got early one morning and drove over to Cades Cove as dawn was breaking. We even packed a delicious picnic lunch for our jaunt! It is so restful to meander through the Cove, stopping every now and then for a photo shoot.
At the Primitive Baptist Church, I had my camera on a tripod to take to take some HDR photos of the church building. While Mr. Jim was checking out the various gravestones, a flock of turkeys momentarily came out of the woods near him. I quickly disengaged my camera from the tripod, changed the settings, and tiptoed over to the area. I had just enough time to get off one good shot before the flock scattered back into the woods, gobbling all the way.
