Little River in Winter

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

The leaves are gone from the trees in the Smokies in December, but there is still beauty to be found.  This picture of the Little River was taken at the ‘Y’ — Townsend, Tennessee, entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Love the flowing water. It always looks more cold when the trees are bare.

Ginny said...

The water is like velvet, and I like the big smooth river stones, too.

Beautiful and cold looking. The water looks like satin.

As folhas desapareceram, mas os ramos das árvores permanecem firmes e vigorosos, o rio engrossa o seu caudal e ganha mais alento. Magnífica foto, George!
Desejo-lhe um FELIZ NATAL!

Yes, there is always beauty to be found in every season, (if I can just stay warm enough outdoors to find it!!) Love the movement of the water. Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season.

Sorry, George! I almost missed this post.. Beautiful shot! I wish you all the best in 2015.. Happy New Year!

I see the words "Little River" and my first thoughts go to the band (originally Australian) with hits like "Reminiscing, Lonesome Loser, and Cool Change." They had a smooth sound that was easy on the ears.

But HERE, we have a smooth surface on the water, which is easy on the eyes. Even though it's cold, that looks like a nice place to be right now. (It's probably warmer than here, anyway. We're near 0 degrees.)

Happy New Year! xoxo

I wish you and Betsy all the best in 2015, George!

Wishing and hoping all is well since Betsy's surgery.

Lisa Sicard said...

George, I love this photo - the rushing water looks more like a painting than a photo, how did that happen?

wilbo43 said...

Great shot of the river, George. I can't remember if we saw it when we were there in November but even though it was cold then, it's probably even colder now. Here it's 99 Deg F. this week.
