Even though we are just starting to notice some color changes in the trees, the ground is loaded with it. Predominately yellows taking over the late blooming wildflowers with some purples mixed in accenting them throughout Cades Cove.
It was an absolutely gorgeous scene yesterday even though there was very little sunlight at all.
This particular photo caught my eye as we were driving along the Loop Road. I noticed what is a drainage ditch that was filled with these yellow weeds and a large amount of Black-Eyed Susans. The ditch curved along with the edge of the tree line and seemed to point right at this small tree that stood out away, almost defiantly, from the rest of the forest line.
The only out of the ordinary processing I did on this was apply the Dreamland Effect from OnOne's Perfect Effects 3 Free to soften and darken the forest line and background behind the defiant tree.
