Video of the Cades Cove Mill in 4k

Taken with a Fuji X-T2 using a builtin film simulation.

A trip to the Smokies isn’t complete until you drive to Cades Cove and visit the mill and if you wife is nice (like mine) get some meal to make some awesome cornbread.

Church in the Cove

Fujifilm X-T2 16mm handheld.

Second church in Cades Cove. This is the church that on our last visit Gerri and I saw two yearlings as they crossed behind the church and through trees.


Waiting for adventure

Canon 5D Mark III 400mm @5.6f

Besides shooting bears in the cover, I always enjoy seeing the horses as the morning begins and their energy and excitement his high.


New Life UPC 5k Race

Enjoyed shooting our church’s first 5k race.

The event raised money for Run 2 Honor Veterans, which takes vets to Washington DC free of charge.

When in Kentucky

You have to go cave exploring when you are in’s state law.

It was a lot of fun going down below the surface with only our lights. It’s a whole other world underground.



I hope I get mad enough to become a better photographer

Wyman Meinzer exists almost without definition. But if we had to pin him down, there’s no word that describes him better than Texan. A hunter, trapper, marksman, outdoor pioneer, and official photographer for the Lone Star State, Wyman captures the dig-your-heels-in determination and appreciation for the land that can be found in those that call Texas home.

What beautiful animals
