Stairsteps II by Gary L   Suddath


Available to buy on…

A few minutes after making “Stairsteps”, the sun burst from behind a cloud and changed the seen from a dark mountain stream to a fall enhanced golden stream. A few moments can make a difference in photography. Those who relize this are are the ones that make the difference in the image being a snap shot or a work of art. Light waits on no one, but must be waited on to see it’s greatness. A drive along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail you can find many of these Stairsteps for many a great shot or just to sit and relax by it. the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail is one of the less visited gems of the Great Smoky Mountains. It is found by driving out the back of Gatlinburg, Tn, USA back into the NP
