Those are really superb photographs. Mind sharing with us what equipment you used? (Especially lens). How long have you been photographing? Good job!

Guitarman3, greetings from the South to the Pacific NW. My equipment is listed below. Shots were mostly taken in RAW mode with minimal PS processing.

Strictly an amateur photographer, I'm keeping my day job. I started with a Kodak brownie when I was about 12 and worked my way up to present equipment. My first Canon was the A-1 about 25 years ago. I went through the other major brands over the years including Minolta, Olympus, and Nikon, but have come full circle back to my Canon. I'm happy. Thanks for the kind comments. -Tom

That second one really tickles my fancy. Living in the worlds flattest state in the worlds flattest continent I kinda crave that layered hilly landscape effect with colours fading ligher as one goes further into the background. I found those conditions once somewhere in Utah in November 1989 - I still have the negs somewhere. I must dig them out and scan them in and play some.

Here is another photo from a slightly different perspective........sti​ll maintains vivid color dispersion through the misty "smoke" but the sun is up enough to light up foreground grasses.

Clingman's dome is the highest point in the Smoky Mountains. It is in the National Park. Picture was taken from the parking lot atop the mountain.

Tom, what a coincidence this thread got resurrected now. I am currently in East Tennessee, with plans to be in GSMNP in about a week. Your photos give me inspiration to get up early, but that is a tough change for me. We'll see. I still appreciate the wonderful shots you posted back then.

A couple more. We go to Gatlinburg every Labor Day with my wifes family. This year there were 25 of us. They've been doing this for over 30 years.
