Spring is one of the best times to visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The new green leaves on the trees, the flowers blooming everywhere and the full streams from the winter snow and spring rains make for some wonderful photography. I probably spent the majority of my recent visit photographing the streams and waterfalls (a personal favorite of mine). The image above was taken at an often photographed location in the Tremont area of the park.
Of course, when you are in the Smokies, you will have plenty of opportunity to capture the “smoke” this park is famous for.
What I enjoy most about the spring is the the fantastic green color that appears everywhere. It is a welcome sight that follows the grays of winter! More photos from GSMNP are here and for information on other Smoky mountains photography workshops, click here.
