Magnificent Smoky Mountains
Photograph - Digital Photography
A view of the beautiful Smoky Mountains from the "Road To Nowhere" in Rocky Mountain National park in Bryson City, North Carolina.
The Road To Nowhere, as most local residents call it, is a 6-mile scenic drive into the North Carolina side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park where it dead-ends. It provides spectacular views of Fontana Lake and the Appalachian Mountains and was originally named Lakeview Drive, but since the road was never completed (as the government promised) residents, who were forced to leave their homes in order for Fontana Dam to be built, gave it the name of The Road To Nowhere. This road was originally to be built to provide the many residents, who gave up their land for the Fontana Dam project, access to their ancestral gravesites.

Passionate about landscape, nature, wildlife, plants, the environment, and the unusual! I take great pride in producing these images that represent Northwest Florida. I strive to create the strongest composition possible in the camera rather than through a lot of editing.
We live in such a fast moving society that today many people don't stop long enough to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. I like to photograph those moments that others might miss.
