Here's a sunrise photo (1st of 6....please scroll down to see others) taken at Clingman's Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains. The "smoke" , actually a cloud-like condensation which acts somewhat like a wispy fog, was rolling this early morning and gives a great color dispersion from the sunrise. This is an excellent example of where this most-visited national park got its name. -Tom

That's a great shot, tbird. Unfortunately, those sunrises are gone by the time I rise (around 8 am). I'll have to settle for sunsets.

That's OK Stan, I like your other shots.....especially your recent church (wires). Here's another pre-sunrise shot on a clear morning without the "smoke". Colors are so muted early that, in spite of color, it looks almost painted.

Here is another pre-sunrise photo of Smokies from Clingman's Dome. Because it was very low light I used a time exposure of about 20 seconds to catch this "dark" shot that shows a "river of fog" coursing between the ranges. I thought this gave an amazing representation of a constantly changing panorama depending on (within minutes) when you shoot. -Tom

Great shots, I like them all but number one is the winner. Awsome photo. I love the trees in the foreground. And it does show where they got the name. The Smokeys are beautiful. I managed a short trip thru them with the family years ago.

tbird, the third shot is as good as the first two. How do you manage to get to Clingman's dome before sunrise? It's at least an hour from anywhere. Also, would you mind if I shared your photos with some friends, giving attribution, of course? I sure haven't been able to capture the Smokies as you have.

Fantastic shots of a great place. The path to it kill me though. :lol:

Stan, these shots were made in the fall when sunrise was late. Left motel in Gatlinburg about 5:15 in the morning to go to Clingman's Dome. You will be surprised to know that many people beat me there. I shot from the base of the Dome in the parking lot....I didn't climb it. That would be daunting to me at any time of the day. Had plenty of time to wait for the sun to come up.

As far as showing the pics, these are just a reflection of what is there in our great national park on any given day. Feel free to show anyone, but thanks for asking permission. I am honored that you like my shots.

Here is one last photo. Hope you like it as well.

Those are great pictures! I love the sfumato effect in the first pic. And the second is just so cool, I really like the reverse-chiaroscuro effect (dark foreground to light background). If I would like to explain to a deaf person what a fugue is, I'd show him the second picture. I think I'd better go sleep now, it's past my bedtime and my head is swimming with terms I learned long ago in an art class.
