Cades Cove, Tennessee Mid Spring

Boneman...now I'm back on track with a Spring picture...you can take your coat off. This is my final picture of the three from Cades Cove. As you look at the post of the Cabin, this was taken from the side yard looking out to the West. My purpose for posting the three was to give some perspective to the beautiful views from this settler's humble home. 360 degrees...you see the crown of the mountains holding the Cove...protecting the Cove. I have been here many times, during all four Seasons and often I see literally tens of dozens of deer and often times black bear in this melting pot of nature and man ...co-existing...for each others benefit.

This particular vist to the Cove was in early May. The leaves had become large enough to begin renewing the lifeblood to the trees for another season. The meadows still wore their light, Spring green, soon to turn to the deep greens of Summer. A beautiful start for the rebirth of wildlife, plants and the heart after weathering the harsh greys and whites of Winter.

I love this pic! It really looks like a painting instead of a photo. This place looks so peaceful thanks for taking me there!

Thanks Karrie....
It is one of those places that never gets old no matter how many times you return.

it looks warmer and more beautiful than here!
I have always loved that fencing style as it takes ONLY the lumber, which, after a season or so, can be burnt for heat.

Awoke to 39. Am keeping the sweatshirt and jacket on, but, the picture warms me from the inside! Thanx!

(on a side note, and speaking of being warmed from the inside? Diane, the gal we know from Lee's blog? Has a really great mission, today on her blog. You migt want to get into it,maybe....)

Boneman,
I never thought of the fact that it could be used for firewood...makes sense. I did know that there are no nails or wooden spikes, just design holding the fence together.

Perhaps I forgaot which blog I first caught you at.
This one is Diane, a writer from the East coast, and if you've never been here, then you're missing out on a spice in life that really shouldn't be missed:

This is one of the sharpest people I know.

I am in love :) with that fence...it completely personifies (to me) that coming together...that melding of co-existence, of animal and man...as well as man's attempt to separate himself.

I can certainly envision the bountiful wildlife. Were you able to get shots of the deer, Dan?

Dan Felstead said...

Muse,

Yes I do have shots of the deer and will make it a pint to include some in my future posts. Thanks for the idea.

I love the way the "meadows wear their light" in this photo. It does look like a painting. Beautiful, transcendent.

Septembermom,
Thanks for your comment on the photo. The late afternoon light is in my opinion the best time of day to capture a moody sensation. I love photographing at time of day.
