One of the subjects many go to the Smoky Mountains are the wide mountain vistas and fog the park is famous for. My last trip did not experience fog until the last morning. When the conditions are right the fog fills the valleys and can be hundreds of feet thick. Looking forward to more fog this time around.

I'll be heading back to the Smokies for a workshop with Tony Sweet this weekend. I thought I would share a pic from my last trip there 2 years ago. This yoke was was hanging in a barn at Cable Mill. The shot was made by underexposing considerably and lighting the yoke with a gelled and snooted flash. The counter intuitive aspect of flash is that flash allows you to take away light in this manner. I won first place in a photo show with this one and the judges were shocked to learn how it was made. Another workshop participant, John Church, and I collaborated on this as we had just finished ready Joe McNally's Hot Shoe Diaries book. Looking forward to going back to the Smoky National Park.
Went to the Low Light and Night Meetup Group a couple of weeks ago. Caught a ride with Robert- thanks. This was one of my favorites from the night and I have to give Robert credit for spotting the shot. This is the Vietnam War Memorial with the Washington Monument in the background.
