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.

Somehow, BottomBracket, I never thought I would take a photograph that would rate huge words that I didn't understand. Think I'll look them up. Thanks, I think. - Tom

Tom, thanks for permission to use your great photos. I have to say it is not as easy as you modestly state. These are very special, and I'll reluctantly share them with a few close friends. Reluctantly because they will see how real photographers do it. Looking forward to more of your work.

Tbird,

Wow, a fantasic set of photos. I can't pic a favorite. they are all great in there own way. It's amazing how many different colors are produced at sunrise.

There is one problem with your photos... They just might ruin my social life here in Charlotte. I'm going to be running up to the mountains every weekend till I can get some good weather on Clingmans dome.

thanks for posting these. They're truely inspiring.

these are superb photos, they are the best of that place they call "clingmans dome" i've ever seen! What s/stop did you use? And was your apature at 1/200 or 1/400? If i was there I would have used an shutter speed of 2.8. Sorry, I am new to this photo "form" stuff, would love the input. Again, great photos. :)

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.

At 6,643 feet, Clingmans Dome is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park's highest point. It is the highest point in Tennessee, and the second highest point east of the Mississippi. The Appalachian Trail crosses Clingmans Dome, marking the highest point along its 2,144 mile journey. - Tom

What an interesting explanation of why they are called The Smoky Mountains. I didn't know this, and your photos illustrate the rising mist effect quite well. :D
These photos are superb, and I especially like the first one. ;)
Thanks for sharing these.
