Butterfly Garden at the Tennessee Aquarium

If you’re lucky one may even land on you!#butterflies #garden #photography #naturephotography #tennesseeaquarium #photoblogger

Great Smoky Mountain Hot Air Balloon Festival

A week ago I went to the Great Smoky Mountain Hot Air Balloon Festival in Townsend, Tennessee. The balloons were beautiful, set against the backdrop of the beautiful Smokies. As the sunset over the Smokies the balloons lit up! And I even got to go for a ride in one of the balloons and can now check that off my bucket list! #photography #hotairballoons #bucketlist #photographyblog #nightphotography
