Our 2018 excursion to the Great Smoky Mountains was as successful as ever despite the fall colors being somewhat lackluster compared to other years. Our primary focus was on capturing beautiful ethereal waterfalls and the great sweeping vistas visible from high on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Below are some of my images from the trip.
