    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I love kicking around the "Celtic Fringe" as well, but that's just an outstanding photograph--love how the acute angles at the top contrast with OOF area in the field. Hope it prints big for you.:)

    Re: great smoky mountains

    Generally October is one of our drier months, but I would always take a shell just in case. Otherwise it's possible that it might be warmer than you expect--but of course make sure you're drinking...

    Hmm...so the childhood memory involving my granny's chicken coop, a No. 1 1/2 Victor chained to a single-tree, and a leucistic Great Horned Owl was almost certainly a figment of my imagination...;)
