A picture a week from around town, or around the world!

Carter Shields Under the Milky Way

Y'all, I can be a little dense sometimes. I have shot almost every historical structure in Cades Cover at night at least once, if not multiple times.  I've even shot the Carter Shields cabin at night a number of times, but I've been convinced that you'd never be able...

LeQuire Cemetery Under the Stars

This happened completely by accident. I've actually got two funny stories that go with this image - one of discovery, and one that scared me to death.  I'll save the story of what I screwed up (i.e. discovery - see what I did there?) for last. If you've ever driven...

Alright, I'm super excited to start my night series here on picture of the week.  Typically I sneak one or two night images in from trips I've taken, but this year, since I wasn't able to travel anywhere with awesome skies, I've just been randomly shooting here around...

Summer Flowers at Sunset

This summer I've been trying to make it to parts of the Great Smoky Mountains that I don't go to very often, just as a way to mix things up a bit.  One of the places I've found myself a few times is the Clingmans Dome area.  The high altitude has been a REALLY nice...

Have you ever found early success with something, been convinced you could do better, only then to find out maybe you can't?  Haha, me either!  🙂 Just kidding.  That's absolutely the story of this week's image. One of my favorite images from last year was this image...

Down at the Hop

I mentioned last week that one of the things I've worked on during the COVID days is flash photography, something I've not previously spent a lot of time on.  And like last week, this week's Picture of the Week is quite a bit different from what I typically post, but...
