For this Thanksgiving Day, I bring a buffet of images from the Smokies taken this fall. We had such a lovely fall season with both the weather and the spectacular colors. This selection includes a broad vista of the sinking sun taken from the East Foothills Parkway.
I singled out a bouquet of red leaves, some Turkey Tail Mushrooms and a bright red leaf that “just happened” to be floating past the brook salamander in the background. Finally, a beautiful tree on the side of the road that caught my attention.
The fall colors are missed already, but now I look forward to some good winter photography with our occasional snows, some abstract ice images and maybe some plant life decorated with a rim of frost.
With the gift giving season soon upon us, consider the gift of art. There are so many local artists creating unique and beautiful things that cannot be found in the mall. Art gives every time someone sees it and supports local creators and small businesses.
Photographer Chris and painter Robin Rohwer each week share a painting or photograph that captured their interest in hopes that it will also capture yours. They have a small studio and gallery in the Phoenix Building at 418 South Gay Street where you can stop and see their work. Their website is www.ChristopherRobinArts.com.
