As we start a new chapter in our beloved Nations's history, I thought that an eagle portrait should be featured this week!

Photo of the Week - Old Stone Bridge at Elkmont

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee

After living in east Tennessee for 36 years and numerous trips to the Smokies, I had never visited the Elkmont area within the park. The oversight was rectified this past October. One of the highlights is an old stone bridge over the Little River near the campground. I will definitely go back to explore the area further!

I failed to post a photo last Wednesday, thanks to a computer software malfunction. All is well now. To make up for my absence, here is a painterly version of the photo too.

I'll let you decide which one you like best!

Christmas Blessings

St. Matthew’s Church, Kalispell, Montana

I featured this photo several years ago and decided to share again. It was taken in broad daylight, but I added a starry sky background for artistic expression.

Photo of the Week - Autumn Ballet of Water and Light

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee

I was doing some landscape photography with a Chattanooga friend one morning in late October. The light was starting to peek over a mountain ridge at this one spot along Upper Tremont Road. We had to set up and shoot fast to capture soft diffused light on the water. I noticed a beautiful green reflection on the background stream, thanks to the rising sun. I took a couple of clicks, and then the reflected and the soft shadow lights were gone. Conditions can change quickly in the mountains, so you have to chase the light!
