A shower before the storm in the Great Smoky Mountains. This was made from the breezeway or dog-trot of Ephraim Bales Cabin, located along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. Two types of fencing can also be seen in the picture. A rock wall on the left and a wooden picket fence on the right. The sound of the rain falling in the forest was as relaxing for me as it was for Ephraim over a hundred years ago.

    Hey Gary, I was here Tuesday, instead of sleeping after working all nite. I just had this urge to go to the mountain and take pictures!!! I paid for it at work that nite after only 3-4 hours of sleep! This is beautiful, such a great place to be!!!!

    Beautiful! I love the mist in the trees and the wonderful green. I don’t know of many places as green as the Smokies.

    Oh wow Gary, this is gorgeous. I can feel the rain and smell the wet mulching leaves on the ground, a wonderful shot!

    This reminds me of camping as a kid. Nice example of how to capture more than the visual in a photo-I can hear the raindrops on top of the tent, feel like I am wearing my slicker and smell the forest. Wonderfully done Gary and welcome back!

    Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories.. I use to go to Gatlenburg every year for a week.. Then to Pidgeon Ford… It has been many years since I have been there.. Such a beautiful place… Your photo shows it in all it’s splendor… Great job.
