Mossy Tree and the Little Pigeon River

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

Sometimes a scene just begs for a picture to be taken.  In mid-January Betsy and I were hiking along the Little Pigeon River in the Greenbrier section of the Smokies.  The day was pleasant, but partly cloudy.  As we got near the bridge over the river leading to Ramsey Cascade Road, the sun came out.  This moss-covered tree on the bank had branches leaning out over the stream, and the light seemed perfect for a photo.  This is the result.

Indeed it does make a lovely sight. However, no matter the subject, you still share some of the best.

The rushing water and the mossy, overhanging branches combine to make a lovely picture. Thank you for sharing, George.

Beautiful photo. We love the Smokies and got a grand tour in Feb. two years ago from a retired Ranger friend who lives in Maryville nearby...:)

Hi George! It seems I have somehow lost track of you, so Betsy sent me a link. I thought you had stopped posting. our pictures are outstanding! What I love the most is the light. Is that a rest stop, or did people actually live there? It is adorable!

Very pretty, George. Interesting how the moss clings to the tree limbs.
