Another shot of the great color enveloping the Newfound Gap Road in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN. Like I said in a previous post, this section of the road has some of the best color I've seen anywhere. Combine that with the dark colors of the newly re-paved road, and you've got a location where almost any shot looks awesome! This was taken the afternoon before the recent snow storm. I was really hoping to get back here after the snow, but no such luck. In retrospect, I should have slept near Gatlinburg and hiked up the closed road the next morning.

Standing in the road seems like it would be precarious, but it's pretty easy to hear cars coming from a long way away in the otherwise-silent mountains. So long as no one is driving a sneaky, silent electric car, I guess! I usually get all the settings right before I enter the road, then quickly take one shot before moving on, always looking over both shoulders!
