You Don’t Always Get a Snowy Christmas in Appalachia
Over the Christmas break, we found our way to two of our favorite shooting areas, the southern mountains of Appalachia and the rugged seacoast of New England. Over the course of our trip, we took several excursions to a variety of locations, some new to us and others old and familiar. We began our photo adventure by exploring Appalachia – specifically southwestern Virginia and eastern Tennessee. As part of a family trip, we headed to Pigeon Forge for our first-erver trip to Dollywood. Though we didn’t bring in the big cameras, our faithful ol’ waterproof Sony provided a handy way to document this colorful piece of Christmas in Appalachia (above).
While in Virginia, we took to the back roads and forgotten paths of the region in search of new vignettes to photograph. While exploring this corner of Appalachia, we visited a grand waterfall, found some great farm scenes on a foggy afternoon, and stumbled upon this old slat barn (above), just as the sun was setting in the hollow. You never quite know what you’re going to find when you set out to explore – but you seldom return home empty handed. Such was the case with our last Appalachia excursion of the visit, as we summited White Top Mountain and did some hiking in search of the perfect shot. As you can see from the photos in the gallery below, the cloud lawyer was a few hundred feet below the summit, filling the valley like a picturesque quilt of fluffy cotton.
