Norris Dam State Park, Knoxville, TN

We stopped for the night near Norris Dam State Park and got up early the next morning to look for the old grist mill there. We photographed the mill and then walked along the river below the dam for a bit. There were an amazing number of hummingbirds visiting the flowers along the path and the trees held lots of bluebirds and goldfinches.

This state park is a real jewel with hiking trails, joggging paths, horse trails and a marina. The river was lined with flyfishermen. The photos of the fishermen look a bit strange because of the strong reflections and the morning mist.

What a magical morning with the fog layer on the reflective river. The line of fisherman add a human quality to a scene of nature at peace. Superbly exposed and composed. Vote
Best to you,

A fine capture.

As a fisherman I can relate to this tranquil scene and as a photographer I find great pleasure in it too.

I like how the mist is confined into a narrow band also containing the fishermen. Very nice capture.

Cool shot with the mist. Looks like you are having beautiful weather. We're sitting here under Fay's last gasps. Rain and more rain.
