A very small island in Lake Ocoee, framed by jasmine vines. This is in the foothills to the Smoky Mountains in SE Tennessee.
(I used a circular polarizer due to the harsh sunlight)

    Very exquisite framing of this lovely scene, Don! Your colors are magnificant. What a wonderful, relaxing place. I've always loved Kenny Rogers too....especially when he sang with the late Dottie West! Dave said the other day that Kenny had cosmetic surgery. Hmmmm.....I'll have to look for a pic of that. Brilliant photo, Don!!!

    Very nice Donald. I think I may still have one of Kenny"s 8-tracks around the house somewhere.

    Nice, Donald. I know about polarizers, but what's a circular polarizer?

    a cool capture. I thought I knew that your title was from Kenny's song!

    This really turned out excellent..The circular polarizer does indeed cut down on harsh lighting ..I have one from when I used film where I can rotate the filter to adjust it to the amount of light ..and I need to use it more...I keep forgetting to put it on. .I especially loved it to deepen the color tones in the sky on bright days.

    Great framing of the corrogated water washing around the island. Kenny and Dottie top it off wonderfully well!

    Idyllic! I want to be out on that little island... maybe a hammock, a fishing pole, my Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper (with ice...) and of course, my camera. It wouldn't get any better than that!

    Fabulous framing! The filter gave this a blue cast similar to what you see in WA state. Very beautiful, Don!
