I just returned from a photo trip to the Great Smoky Mountains and the NC Outer Banks. My old friend, Ron Basinger from Illinois, joined me for the trip. Fall colors were peaking or just past their peak in Tennessee when we arrived, and we had several good days of shooting in Cades Cove, Tremont, along the Little River and on the Roaring Fork Trail.
When we drove back to North Carolina, hoping to catch the colors along the Blue Ridge Parkway, colors were well beyond peak and many trees had lost their leaves. Not to be skunked, we drove to the Outer Banks and shot there for a couple of days, enjoying the late season solitude, with few tourists and little traffic.
Images from the trip are included in the Smoky Mountains and Outer Banks galleries.
Ron has a gallery of photos from the trip on pBase.
