Its almost that time of the year! The leaves will be changing colors late this month and throughout October, so plan your visit to the Smokies soon! The Blue Ridge Parkway is the best place to see these colors, as you can see them many miles away throughout the mountains. My “Mountains” page on the website features many photos like this one, from many overlooks on the parkway. Go check them out! . . . #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokeymountains #greatsmokies #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemoments #smokymountainphotography #mountains #nature #stephenwenzelphotography #sawphotography #canon #stephenwenzel #fall #october #september #leaves #leaveschanging #colors #fallcolors #scenery

Fall is just about here! During the summer these bears though being omnivores depend highly on all kinds of berries but when cooler weather arrives they gorge themselves on acorns so a good mast is much needed to allow them to put on enough weight to get them through the winter. Sometimes in late summer I’ve noticed green acorns on the ground but haven’t so far this year but hopeful the crop will be good. I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and splendid weekend! 😊 #wildlife #wildlifeplanet #animalelite #extreme_wildlife #wildlifephotography #exclusive_wildlife #smokymountainbears #blackbears #bears #smokymountainphotography #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nationalparks #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #nanpapix #bestnatureshots #instagramtennessee @instagramtennessee #865life @865life

Abram’s Falls in Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It had been probably a couple of years since I had hiked there and it provided some good exercise and not too hard on the knees. Round trip is 5.2 miles and moderate in difficulty. If you get to the Loop Road before sunrise you will be one of the first on the trail and may have it all to yourself at least till you head back. It will be a beautiful hike when the leaves change. Of course when the leaves are in full color there’s not a bad hike is there? Have a nice day! Fall is around the corner! 😊 #abramsfalls #waterfall #hiking #cadescove #smokymountainphotography #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nationalparks #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #nanpapix #bestnatureshots #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #explore #outdoorlife #landscapes #capturelandscapes #instagramtennessee @instagramtennessee #865life @865life

This is one of my first photos of the Smoky Mountains. It was taken in 2016 up along the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Mt. Pisgah.

Do you remember what kind of bird this is? If not, check out the “Daily Birds” collection! Here’s a hint: The first part of its name is a type of tree that is used for nice furniture. . . #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokeymountains #greatsmokies #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemoments #smokymountainphotography #mountains #nature #stephenwenzelphotography #sawphotography #828 #828isgreat

How many species of dragonfly do you think are in the states? I’ve managed to get photos of 10 different species in the Smokies, 5 in New Orleans, and 4 in Florida. I’ve only scratched the tip of the iceberg, and I can’t wait to find more. . . . #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokeymountains #greatsmokies #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemoments #smokymountainphotography #mountains #nature #stephenwenzelphotography #sawphotography #dragonfly #dragonflies

This picture may not seem like a lot, but it’s very meaningful to me on my photography journey. Here’s why: This is the bird that sparked my interest in photography. It landed on my windowsill when I was 15 back at home in the Smokies. I was amazed that there were birds like this there, and I wondered what else I could find. At first, I didn’t do photography but I kept a drawing journal with a document of the bird’s behavior. Then, I decided that I wanted to show my “discoveries” to the public, starting my journey. . It is very hard to get photos of Northern Flickers for me. They almost always seem to be one step ahead and spot me before I see them, despite my preparation. It may be because I’m very tall 🤷🏻‍♂️ This is one of the better pictures that I have. . . . #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokeymountains #greatsmokies #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemoments #smokymountainphotography #mountains #nature #stephenwenzelphotography #sawphotography #northernflicker

I’m experimenting with new ways of displaying pictures. How do you like this one? Flip the phone sideways and it looks like a “River of Light”.

College is coming up soon for many people my age! This little bug is here to remind you to hang in there. You can do whatever you set your mind to. I’m heading out on Friday for my first semester of sophomore year. I’m taking a lot of science classes as well as a photography class! This will be my first official photography class, so wish me luck. My goal is to help you gain a stronger appreciation for nature through my photos, and this class will help me with that goal. . . #smokymountains #greatsmokymountains #greatsmokeymountains #greatsmokies #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemoments #smokymountainphotography #mountains #nature #stephenwenzelphotography #sawphotography

But like, seriously. Tell me that this shouldn't be in some ad somewhere, maybe for like an outdoorsy Target collection—for the amount of times we go there to roam around after having one too many margs at On the Border. 😎 . . . Thank you to @erinm_photography for making us look super chill and feel like a couple of cool kids when we're really a pair of dorks. 🤓 . . . #toinfinitietzandbefronda #knoxvilleweddingphotographer #smokymountainphotography #weddingphotography #engagementphotos #lgbtq #loveislove #coolkids #handinmypocket #pocketfullofmyhand #chimneysarecool

"Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you. Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you. But in your dreams whatever they be. Dream a little dream of me." 😴 Such a dreamy song if I do say so myself. And he's such a dreamy guy if I also do say so as well. . . . Can we just take a moment to thank @erinm_photography for getting those sunbeams? 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 And true story, someone is standing in the middle of a river to take this, and it's not me or Josh. 🤔 . . . #toinfinitietzandbefronda #knoxvilleweddingphotographer #weddingphotography #engagementphotos #smokymountainphotography #lgbtq #loveislove #lightingissogood #joshalmostfellintotheriver

Looking back, the weekend flew by! Where has summer gone? Well, hope everyone has a wonderful week! Can I encourage you real quick with one thing please? There are so many people in our little worlds that are sick and having a rough go of it that could use a word of encouragement or maybe even a phone call and a prayer.

Pellucid: allowing the maximum passage of light, as glass; translucent. Clarity: clearness or lucidity as to perception or understanding; freedom from indistinctness or ambiguity. In photography something that photographers desire to achieve in their photographs is pellucidity and clarity. We want to display for our viewers the clearest image for their enjoyment. Sometimes though parts of the scene are not perfectly clear and there are hindrances that keep all the elements from coming into complete and clear view so we settle with what we get. At times that can be appealing. At other times it can be detrimental in the end result. In the world we live in this same thing happens. Things are set before us that on the surface have appeal physically or philosophically but aren’t what they are perceived to be. An example of this in my life was the 60’s and 70’s when there was such a departure from the way of life in the 50’s and young people had their way obscured by a new culture. The appeal was strong and so were the consequences for many. The same is true today. “In photography, exposure is the amount of light which reaches your camera sensor or film. It is a crucial part of how bright or dark your pictures appear.” The same can be said about life. How much light is getting in or how much light is the darkness keeping out? What brings clarity into your life? What enables you to see life as it really is? “Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” John‬ ‭8:12‬ ‭ Wishing everyone a wonderful Sunday! 😊 #cadescovephotography #gsmnp #smokymountainphotography #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #nanpapix #bestnatureshots #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #explore #outdoorlife #landscapes #capturelandscapes #instagramtennessee @instagramtennessee #865life @865life #instagramtennessee @instagramtennessee #865life @865life #smokiesfriends @smokiesfriends

We bump (butt? ) heads sometimes about whether or not something was a musical or a movie first. But we're always down to make up, bump hips, and drink a marg (or three ). 🍹 . . . We may or may not be in love with our photographer @erinm_photography because of either 1. Her amazing shooting style 2. Her similar love of margs/tequila 3. Both 1 and 2. . . . #toinfinitietzandbefronda #knoxvilleweddingphotographer #smokymountainphotography #weddingphotography #engagementphotos #lgbtq #loveislove #margaritas #hipbumps

A lot of things make me smile: Margaritas, a good Excel spreadsheet, my Riley-pup, Pokémon, a baby's laugh. But this guy kissing my cheek right here, he makes me smile the biggest—sometimes to the point of tears. And trust me, I'm going to be a mess on our big day. 😭😭😭 . . . You know what also makes me smile? Amazing photographers like @erinm_photography who can capture really genuine moments like this. 📷 . . . #toinfinitietzandbefronda #knoxvilleweddingphotographer #weddingphotography #engagementphotos #smokymountainphotography #lgbtq #loveislove #yesisaidexcelspreadsheets

This is my first ever Red Crossbill. Below are some facts from the “Sibley Guide to Birds” if interested. Have a great day! 😊 Uncommon and very irregular. Always in flocks. Feeds on conifer seeds and almost never seen away from pines or other conifers. Larger than House and Purple Finches; relatively large-headed and short-tailed. Bill size varies with population. Rather dark reddish or greenish overall, with plain dark wings and tail. RED CROSSBILL CALL TYPES Recent research shows that there are at least nine discrete populations, or types, of Red Crossbill, possibly representing nine separate species. Each type wanders erratically in search of its preferred food, often co-occurring with other types. Most are not reliably distinguished in the field and should be identified only by careful analysis of tape-recorded flight calls. Note that intermediate calls do occur and rare individuals give calls of two different types; some are simply unidentifiable. Average differences in size, range, and food preferences also provide clues that may be useful for identification.

When we have each other we have everything ♥️♥️♥️ This mini session was interrupted by a 30 minute thunderstorm but that led to my joining the family in their van. I got to hear how Morgan and her husband met, I learned that Luke likes to spell, and that Samuel really likes fart jokes.

On Monday this week while praying for someone I was so moved that they really needed some hope. Do you know what I mean? Have you ever had a sense of hopelessness? Need a break in the clouds? I’ve prayed and thought about this all week. Here’s what the dictionary says about hope: hope 1. the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best 2. to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence. When a doctor looks you in the eyes and says “I’m sorry there’s no cure but we’ll do what we can” hopelessness can set in and be overwhelming. Where do you you go mentally, emotionally when things appear hopeless? What does your heart tell you to rely on or in whom to rely on when you finally are in a situation when there seems to be no concrete answers? Have you been there? Do you know? Listen to this passage of scripture in Eugene Peterson’s language. “When God wanted to guarantee his promises, he gave his word, a rock-solid guarantee—God can’t break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God where Jesus, running on ahead of us, has taken up his permanent post as high priest for us.” Hebrews‬ ‭6:1-20‬ ‭MSG‬‬ In my personal experience what that means as much as I appreciate doctors, medicine, medical technology, science, etc they don’t have the last word regarding my life and the longevity of it. God does and not only my life but my family’s and my friend’s and everyone else. That’s where and in Whom I find hope. My best for your Sunday! 😊 #cadescovephotography #gsmnp #smokymountainphotography #greatsmokynps #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #nationalparks #nature_brilliance #naturephotogrqphy #allnatureshots #instagramtennessee @instagramtennessee #865life @865life
