Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the United States. I am a long day's drive away so it is the park I have most visited as well. In the first of three posts from my recent trip there, here are some infrared images that only very partially show the great diversity of things to see and do in the park. Some color and some non-IR black and white images to follow.

A bit puzzled that there is yet no response to this fine IR collection by the membership

Always enjoy your work Roger, no exception this time as this set once again proves.
Particularly like #2 with the low hanging clouds/mist in the background and the bright clouds complementing and accentuating the two trees and fence. As well as #4 for the clever composition.

Hi Roger,

Another fine set from you and something to encourage and convince (some) people to visit this part of the USA?!

The first sets the scene admirably and, for me, is actually the pick of the set; the tonal balance is well judged but, for me, it's the combination of that hard fence posts and the misty (smoky?) background that really makes it foe me. It doesn't leap out at you but it's rather easy on the eye and sets a gentle, relaxing scene before you. Sometimes one doesn't need the 'in your face' approach to make an image work for you.

Of the others, I also like the lead-ins of #'s 3 and 4 for different reasons; #3 for the more typical road lead in across the frame from left to right, and #4 for a more challenging lead in through the covered bridge (?) to the building beyond - again, with a nicely balanced exposure maintaining detail just enough in the shadow areas.

I will definitely be looking forward to seeing your next installment in this series to see just where (and how) you take us further into this wonderful landscape.

Take care and best regards, Neil.
My Mantra: "Comment on other's work as you would wish to have yours commented upon". Go on - it's fun!

angora and owenn01 - Thanks for commenting. As to #4, I was a bit surprised that I could capture some details in the darkness in the "hall way" that I was shooting from and the brightness in the distance in a single shot with the a900. Many times in the past for such shots I have needed to combine two images.

Late to the party, but nothing personal Roger
When I saw the title, I was very curious how the Smoky Mountains would look like in IR.
It looks good and completely different than the traditional pictures froem this aare I have seen so far. A fine set indeed, very much in your own style, which I like a lot. Hard for me to pick a favpurite. TFS
