The Great Smoky Mountains

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Most of you know that I now live in South Florida but I spent most of my life in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.  I certainly didn't go as often as I should have before I became serious about photography but once I did I tried to make up for the lost time.  Every year since leaving back in 2005 we return to East Tennessee to visit old friends and family.  During this time I always manage to make it back to those hills that mean so much to me at least a few times.

What is it about the Smoky Mountains that draws me in?  Why do I love those green rolling hills so much?  I think the answer is a spiritual one.  I think God used these ancient mountains to awaken in me a passion for photography and for the arts in general.  It was in those hills that I first learned that the spirit can be moved by the act of artistic expression.
