Default Tennessee/N.C. mountains in late Oct.

I will be in the Tennessee/N.C. mountains from Oct. 25th till the 28th. Unfortunately I will have 2 passengers which means I have to leave the vette home again. I will be staying in north Georgia at Brasstown Valley and leaving early each morning to drive/photograph the mountains. Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.The current plans are Tennessee on Thursday, N.C on Friday with Saturday and Sunday undecided at this time. Will anyone else be in that area that weekend?

Yeah. At least I did see you and your husband driving along one time while I was up there. I am looking forward to Cades Cove again. I got some really good shots of deer last time and am still trying to see some bear I can get.

I remember that.

I love Cades Cove. If you can go on a weekday it won't be quite as crowded. Hopefully the leaves won't all be gone then. the fall colors in the smokies are fantastic.

For this reason I want to hit Cades Cove on Thursday. Hopefully the weather helps the leaves have nice color.

good....Thursday will be better than a weekend day for sure. And I do hope the leaves hold out for you.

Not sure where I'll be then, but park regulations concerning photography has changed so unless you're doing it from your vehicle you might want to check with park hqtrs.

Our photography club (http://www.sanp.net/events.htm) is having two rangers at our mtg. Tues. to discuss this very subject. Unfortunately I'll be missing that mtg. Should I get any written info I'll pass it along.

Happy shoot'n!!!!

Just a couple weeks ago I was at Cades Cove. There was a park ranger standing with some guy that was photographing a couple of bucks. He was out of his vehicle and following the deer through the fields. I took all my photos either from the vehicle or from on top of the vehicle.

COOL! I've photographed people for a publication with their VERY YOUNG children in fields as if the animals were pets..........as you know, THEY'RE NOT! I was LIVID! People don't seem to realize the danger they're putting themselves, let alone their children in. Fortunately nothing happened, but it could've. I'm glad the publication actually RAN the photos with a story on safety.

I hate I'll miss this mtg. because I want to know the rules. I know they're only protecting people from themselves, but imagine what the cove would look like if everyone that visited walked into the fields....trails everywhere!

Okay, I'll get off my soap box now. Have a great time and hopefully I'll be able to join y'all!

People are stupid. Wizard's First Rule. I remember seeing this idiot climbing over a fence to get photos of a mother bear with 2 cubs coming out of a tree. I started yelling out the window. "Get the stupid human! Get the stupid human!"
