Smoky silhouettes

One leg of our recent road trip took us through the lovely Smoky Mountains National Park in western North Carolina.  We didn’t have time for more than a few brief stops, but I made this shot looking west (more or less) from a particularly-nice vantage point.  I hope to be able to explore this area much more thoroughly some day.

    Wonderfully…sweetly serene…and so inviting, of course.

    Fascinated by the colors, especially that of the lichen being picked up in the trees. I’d paint a room to match this photo! (That’s a high compliment.)

    Love the contrast in the forest colours and the lichen in the foreground.

      I fell in love with the rolling hills in this part of the country the first time I was old enough to appreciate their beauty. Actually, I was born only about 55 miles/90 km from here. We moved to Michigan when I was only 6 weeks old, but the Appalachians have long had a special place in my heart.
