To bear witness to the staggering beauty of the Smoky Mountains is an honor. To have the opportunity to capture a fleeting glimpse of it to share with you is a great joy. The Smoky Mountains are a rich and beautiful landscape that can easily overpower the senses and render the most verbose silent. There were moments when I had to remind myself to suspend my awe and actually engage with the camera. But once I began to capture images it seemed that I couldn't stop. The following gallery is an outtake of just a few of the many images that I captured during my visit to the Smoky Mountains.
