instead of doing the usual smoky mountain autumn shot, figured it’s time to show off what millions that pass thru this area dont get to see as they head into the park.
this is along the backroads of my home town of townsend tn.
i am so glad this area hasnt been ruined as the gatlinburg, pigeon forge and seiverville side with many rental cabins, hotels, so many resturants you’re no longer hungry trying to decide where to eat, and all the commercialism that is on that side.
this is what the smoky mountains are all about. a peaceful and beautiful life, blending into the enviroment instead of ruining it. going to the local mom and pop resturant instead of supporting chains that are all around the world.
there is a hidden beauty in this area, and to see it, one must have a open mind and open eyes.
i shot this in SS priority ( i always shoot in SS priority) at 1/125, F-stop at 11, ISO at 100, and exposure comp at -0.03, focus at 38mm
