It was the first Scarlet Tanager for Jean which made the sighting extra special.
The temperature was about 67 degrees, just right.

So, for a while I will be focusing on the nature of traveling rather than Trillium wildflowers. Yes, I will blog about Trillium all year but, perhaps far less until next Trillium season.
One of our favorite places to travel is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I have selected one of the photos I shot in the Smokys this spring. In season, it is a great place to see Yellow Trilliums and wild orchids like the Yellow Lady Slippers. I will soon be visiting Greenbrier again as I always do for the enjoyment of any season. Perhaps I will find summer wildflower to blog about.
This is a cropped photo of a stream in Greenbrier. I often use Photoshop to process my photos. This one is right out of the camera without any processing except for the crop, frame, lettering and the drop shadows. It is rather unusual for me to publish photos without post processing to make them more like I saw when I was there. In this case, the lighting was great and so the colors came out very well without any other processing.
I am considering starting a blog on how to process your photos in Photoshop. For now, if you would like to learn how to make a drop shadow, go here:
We did find Catesbys Trillium at Angel Falls.
