Field Notes Print Info

This is from one of my favorite overlooks in Smoky Mountains National Park. In fact, I like it so much I tend to stop there nearly every evening when I’m in the area. I’ve literally been to this overlook 20+ times over the last couple years – and the result was never what I thought it could be.

Until this image a few weeks back.

It had been a very stormy month in the mountains and when the lighting and thunder came though early evening, I knew I had a good chance. Although my hotel was nearly an hour’s drive away, I decided to go for it anyway. When I arrived, it was just magic.

The wind was sweeping the clouds thorough the mountains, every minute changing the scene to something new. I was so mesmerized with the clouds drifting by I’m just glad I remembered to take a few snaps so I could share this with you 😉

About Our Prints....

We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.

Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:

Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.

Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.


Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.


All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).


Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.


We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.

Thanks for your interest!

    I love this picture. It looks like ghosts or angels flying in the air.

    Steve, I have been to Morton’s overlook at least twenty times also and have never captured the scene I am looking for. You have encouraged me to try it one more time. This is an extraordinary shot of this iconic Smoky Mtn. location as is all of your work.
