Snow on a spring day at Cades Cove

Last year when the brick plant Jimmy worked at in Knoxville first closed his company sent him to Marian, Virginia and had him working weekends. During that time I planned a trip to the Florida Birding FotoFest, and upgraded my camera to a D-SLR instead of a point and shoot. Had less than a month to get to know this camera, so weekends were spent with the camera in hand. On March 1 I went to Cades Cove and it was a beautiful spring like day. On March 8 I returned to Cades Cove to a beautiful snow covered cove. I have been posting some deer photos from that day and decided to post this one, it happens to be a favorite. Had it framed for a while on my desk at work, and have sold some cards with this photograph.
(Betsy, there is still hope for some snow!)
My Granny was born this day 109 years ago! I will be posting her daffodils when spring gets here this year. I have moved them all over East Tennessee as I have moved (yet again) in the 38 years I have been in Tennessee. Don't think I will be transplanting any to Rockwood, but who knows? If they need to be divided in the next several years I might put some there, but only if I am willing to leave them there in a few years.

I agree with Lynne, great photo. Can't wait to see Granny's Daffadils, how special is that?

Beautiful! I wish we would get some snow here in KY. He have flurries today, but no accumulation. I've been going through a dry spell with my photography. I just don't see anything worth photographing because it is all gray and dreary around here. I'm itching to get out and photograph something.

Thanks Leedra... I'm glad there is still HOPE for some snow. I'll hold you to it!!!!! ha

Love that picture also... Sometimes the simplest pictures are the BEST.

Glad you have your Granny's daffodils. That is so neat to have a piece of her. She'd be so happy. AND--I'll bet they will need thinning..SO--I wouldn't be surprised to see them at the Rockwood home sometime!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

One of these days, it's the Nikon digital for me! I could use all our Nikor lenses with it, and that would be great.
Really lovely shot!
