#WW Autumn colors and a surprise

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good-morning, kittens and dawgs! Thank you for making me a part of your day. I have more autumn colors and a special surprise for you!


The morning light was low and I intentionally underexposed this shot to bring out the colors along the river. This is Little Pigeon River in the Smoky’s taken at Chimney’s Picnic area.


We just pulled back on the road from the Chimney’s Picnic area when we found traffic stopped. That can only mean one thing…wildlife. But, where is it? I figured there was deer on the edge of the road (Opposite where my lens is pointing), but then I noticed the passenger in the car in front of us pointing up on the bank. I started scouting the trees with my eagle eye that’s when I located the all the fuss. Do you see what I see? There are two young bear cubs near the bottom of the tree. One is still climbing down.

In case you’re still having difficulty seeing the cubs let the arrows show you the way. 🙂 I had to brighten the exposure since I was shooting in the shadows. I rather get the picture than to miss it altogether, so I aimed and snapped.


Crossing the top of the Smoky’s on 441 and heading toward Cherokee, North Carolina the park has a short footbridge built-in the side of the mountain and it’s an excellent photo-op spot. Come back later in the week to see my Skywatch Friday contribution taken on this day.

I will be taking all of next week off for Thanksgiving. I’ll be back on the December 2nd for another edition of Wordless Wednesday and I hope you can join the fun.  Have a fototastic day!

This is what I call an extreme close up.

ZZing-zang there goez the whole gang! Well…I hope the A-Z Challenge gang doezn’t go completely. What a privilege it is to join a group of zealous bloggerz for the entire month of April! My approach to this was to blog about thingz I am learning A-Z. However, I am not sure how well I followed through with my general theme. I did list my blog class under photography, and for the large part I did manage to share a number of my imagez with you.

That being said, it’s Wordless Wednesday by my clock and I invite you on a cyber trip to zee  viewz through the lenz. Continue reading
