Bud Ogle's Dogwoods

Here is a photo of Bud Ogle's house (in the Smokies) and a dogwood beside it that was blooming during the wildflower pilgrimage of 2009. The close up (below) shows a pair of flowers from a tree that was behind me (and just up the small hill) as I faced the tree and cabin.

I see simple lines, wild nature and BEAUTY. I love this picture.

THANKS! I think it's a nice shot to show the setting. It "feels" like a Smokies shot.

Elizabeth, THANKS. I work hard to try and FIND a good shot. I do like this one but gee, I had been there so many times and seemed to take forever to find a shot that I really liked! My closeup work is somewhat easier for me because the very nature of the subject imposes a degree of simplicity or isolation. But landscapes are so vast. And yet I have to select just one small section of it. Again thanks for your kind words!

Noura, Thanks for you kind comment. I do enjoy my blog. I wish I could spend more time keeping it up to date. This has been a busy year (as was last year but for different reasons!).

Alex, Thanks for your comment. I normally omit human structures but in a place like the Smokies with so much history, I find it easy to make exceptions expecially for a landscape shot like this one.
