Captures of Nature, High Holy Days Reading

The photograph above always brings me back to the Smokey Mountains, and to the beauty and awe of nature. To call the scenic setting breathtaking, is an understatement. Like Yosemite National Park, the sea, or the Grand Canyon, the Smokey Mountains leave me gasping at the wonder of it all.

  1. You have quite a diverse collection of books here. Years ago I remember my mother reading the Agnon book. Smokey Mountains look lovely – I am sitting typing this in the scenic Berkshire Mountains.

  2. Very peaceful and I needed that today..thank you…Michelle

  3. You got some beautiful photos of ‘our’ Smoky Mountains. I hope you can come back for another visit soon.
