Probably the second most photographed tree in Cades Cove, Tennessee. Mostly this tree is displayed either with snow, b&w or leafless. I even seen one with a young White-Tailed deer pulling Acorns off of the lower branches. Well I too couldn’t resist a chance to take this tree home with me. Original image taken in June 2010 on a hot humid cloudy day with passing storms. The original is bright with deep greens and golden meadow grass but it looks like every other photo taken that day so I tweaked it a tad.
