Photographer Laszlo Perlaky

Title Hardwood Cove
Category May 2014 BW Gold Third Place
Location Hardwood Cove, Great Smoky Mountains NP, TN
Reason For Making the Image During one of our early spring photo hikes, we looked all day to find and photographblooming Trilliums covered forest floor, but the blooming was delayed. We were sad about it, however, when I looked at the slopes of Hardwood Cove, I was impressed with the trees and the light behind them. Placing a Soft focus filter to my lens, I was able to express my feelings and the mystery of the Hardwood Cove.
