I spent the last few days at the Tennessee Professional Photographer Association workshop in Townsend, Tennessee. I took some great classes and got to do some fun shooting in Cades Cove. It was the first time I have ever seen Cades Cove, an 11 mile loop in the valley of the Smoky Mountains. I had fun making a few abstracts and enjoying the historical buildings around the loop. I completely recommend checking out this side of the mountain, it was a nice change from the busy of the Gatlinburg area.
