Not Just Any Ole' Road⠀⠀⠀ Sparks Lane⠀ Cades Cove - Great Smoky Mountains National Park (July 8, 2019)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fog in Cades Cove has to be one of the best times. It makes for cooler mornings on those hot summer days, and it gives up some pretty awesome photo opportunities. Last week, I drove in to find the Cove was totally fogged over. I drove down Sparks Lane (honestly, I was looking for bugs and spiders), when this scene came up. I couldn't pass it by. There's just something magical when this happens. You don't know where the road will end up taking you. Although, I know where it goes, I never know what I'll find along the way. That's the fun part!⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Feel free to share and check out my page.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greatsmokymountains #smokymountains #friendsofthesmokies #findyourpark #cadescove #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #865life #visitmysmokies #surftennessee #nationalparklife #instagramtennessee #onlyintennessee #naturephotography #canonphotography #canonusa #photooftheday #picoftheday #igdaily #instadaily #lifeisgood #nature #landscape #landscapephotography #fog #foggy #road #countryroad #morning #optoutside 5 hours ago by @christophercannonphotography

This pretty little female Goldfinch is a frequent visitor to our feeder here in our mountain paradise. I love the little sounds she makes when she communicates with her friends and her mate. In this photo she looks at me inquisitively probably wondering why I'm so interested in her. I wish I could tell her that she and her friends make me smile. #birdsofafeather #natureisbeautiful #gsmnp #visitmysmokies #865life #smokymtnliving #brysoncity #liveoutdoors #visitncsmokies #peacefulsmokies #tnmountains #instagramtennessee #optoutside #friendsofthesmokies #gsmassoc #blueridgeoutdoors #natgeotravel #blueridgemoments #naturaltennessee #awalkinthewoods #blueridgemountainlife #tristaradventures #peacefulplaces #greatsmokynps #gatlinburgtnguide 16 hours ago by @wolfmtnimages

Leaf Hopper is Served⠀⠀ Robber Fly (Ommatius ouachitensis)⠀ Cades Cove - Great Smoky Mountains National Park (July 3, 2019)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These guys have to be on of my favorites! For one, I had my first attempt at macro with them last year - unsuccessfully, of course. This year, I was finally able to be successful! They can be found sitting on the fence wires around the cove, and sometimes, if you get luck, one will be perched on a twig or blade of grass. They sit there until some unsuspecting insect flies by. Then, Bam! They are off the wire, caught the bug and back to almost the exact same spot in the blink of an eye. These robber flies are like the hawks of the insect world. I have seen them with numerous types of bugs over the past couple weeks, including this small leaf/plant hopper. It's just amazing to watch them, and they often are pretty cooperating insects.⠀ ⠀⠀ Feel free to share and check out my page.⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greatsmokymountains #smokymountains #friendsofthesmokies #findyourpark #cadescove #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #865life #visitmysmokies #surftennessee #nationalparklife #instagramtennessee #onlyintennessee #naturephotography #canonphotography #canonusa #photooftheday #picoftheday #igdaily #instadaily #lifeisgood #nature #macro #insectsofinstagram #insects_of_our_world #robberfly #ommatius #fly #dinner #optoutside 1 day ago by @christophercannonphotography

" Do you see anything? " That was the question of a passerby yesterday as I was taking this photo... It's a question that I have heard countless times in the Smokies... My answer almost always disappoints them... Yesterday's response from me was, "Just the landscape." I really wanted to respond with asking what it is they didn't see... Sure, they really wanted to know if I was taking a photo of a bear... But it truly makes me sad that in their search of a bear they missed the opportunity to see the deep blue summertime sky, the fluffy white clouds that I often dream of, the strong and sturdy tree that has stood for decades in the heart of the Smokies, the swaying of the grass in the pre-storm breeze, the thousands of clovers and queen Anne's lace blooming throughout the fields, the June bugs hovering like they did when I was a kid on my grandmother's farm, the butterflies and other pollinators working, and last but not least the rolling blue ridges of the mountains that we love so dearly.... Oh, and that bear hidden away in the canopy of the tree for his mid-morning nap. So.. Yes, here's is a photo of 'just a landscape'. 💙 1 day ago by @kristi_parsons
So unbelievably thankful for a weekend exploring NC/TN with my momma💕 Unfortunately the weather today was all over the place but we still spent most of today in the Smokies driving around and falling in love with the views. We then got to end the day at New Belgium Brewing Company in Asheville and a Lord Huron concert downtown. For anyone unfamiliar with either, CHECK THEM OUT. New Belgium is 100% employee owned and has an incredible, environmentally-friendly business model that makes me want to jump for joy and Lord Huron is my favorite band that always gets me movin and groovin💃🏼 We’ve got one more day tomorrow to explore but I already can’t wait to see what adventure is in store next!! 2 days ago by @chacosandadventures

Exploring in the Cataloochee Valley today. This schoolhouse was built in 1903 and was nearly exactly what I’ve imagined while writing certain scenes in The Harlot of Blue Ridge. It both excites and humbles me to walk around in these old structures.

"When you start each day with a grateful heart, light illuminates from within." -unknown⠀ ⠀ Good morning! Happy Friday and welcome to a capture of this beautiful place we live by @gravettadam ⠀ ⠀ Did you know when you see someone smile, you're unconsciously absorbed by it because, according to Penn State University, it can "trigger the feeling of reward" in your own body? In other words, when someone smiles at you, you instinctively think that you must have done something good to deserve this smile, and as a result, this makes you feel happy.⠀ ⠀ And, on a more physical level, since smiling is said to trigger a release of dopamine and serotonin (aka the feel-good chemicals) in your body, this only makes your reward response that much stronger.⠀ ⠀ What's more, you're pretty likely to smile back, thus perpetuating the cycle altogether, and proving all on your own that smiling really can be contagious. #weekendvibes #rhdedu #goodmorning #monday #greatsmokymountains #beautiful #smile #dentist #gsmnp #exploremore #theoutbound #optoutside #865health #blueridgemoments #865life #journeytowardshealth #vitality #health #rhdsmiles #oralhealth #cosmeticdentist #smiledesigner #liveinspired #mindbodysoul #healthyhappylife #wellnessjourney #nourishyourself #FriendsOfTheSmokies ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 3 days ago by @rhdsmiles
When I first biked in to Cades Cove, it was pitch black and I couldn’t see very far up the road at all. The last time I had been through here it was 15 years ago, so I didn’t remember much. I ended up on a gravel cut through and I was trying to figure out where I wanted to situate myself to photograph the sunrise. I stopped in the middle of the road, turned around, and saw this. I knew I had to get out my gear and take the shot, because the fog was just too perfect to pass up. Cades Cove without the cars = photographer’s paradise. . . . . . #sonyalpha #sony #cadescove #nps #nationalparks #awesomeearth #ourplanetdaily #wildernessculture #ig_myshots #tennessee #folkvibes #getoutsidetn #smokymountainsnationalpark #natgeo @southernlivingmag #GreatSmokyMountains #FriendsOfTheSmokies 3 days ago by @upabovegeorgia

Sparky's Crossing⠀ Eastern Box Turtle (Terrapene carolina carolina)⠀⠀⠀ Cades Cove - Great Smoky Mountains National Park (July 8, 2019)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had stopped on Sparks Lane the other day to photograph the fog. When I turned to leave, I found something in the middle of the lane I hadn't seen in probably close to 10 years. Probably before I started college, I found an Eastern Box Turtle on Sparks Lane. Nearly a decade later, I was lucky enough to find another. I always check when driving to see if I could spot another one over the years, and I almost thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. These guys are pretty special to me! When I was younger, my Papaw, brother and I would go out fishing, hunting or just exploring. I wanted to bring every one I found - which was plenty - back home with me. I just loved watching them! However, although they are common across Tennessee, they are in decline. Like I said, it's been almost a decade since I've seen one in person. I photographed him from a distance, making sure to catch Sparks in the background, before allowing him to go on his merry way.⠀ ⠀ Feel free to share and check out my page.⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #greatsmokymountains #smokymountains #friendsofthesmokies #findyourpark #cadescove #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #865life #visitmysmokies #surftennessee #nationalparklife #instagramtennessee #onlyintennessee #naturephotography #canonphotography #canonusa #photooftheday #picoftheday #igdaily #instadaily #lifeisgood #nature #turtle #turtlesofinstagram #easternboxturtle #boxturtle #turtleinstagram #boxie #terrapene #optoutside 4 days ago by @christophercannonphotography

Yearling eating cherries, August 2018. I am not an expert but from what I was told this only happens every 3 years because the bears destroy the trees. I did witness bigger bears ripping all the branches off the trees just for the cherries. Also saw a large male sleeping on a branch that I would be afraid to walk on just so when wakes up there would be cherries close by. #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #blackbear #wildlifephotography #wildlife #tennessee #canon #cadescove #friendsofthesmokies 5 days ago by @eddiejohnsonphotos
