Knoxville Daily Photo will post one photo per day taken from the Knoxville/Knox County, Tennessee area. Knoxville is the city of my birth, the place where I work, and the largest city near our hometown. It's a wonderful community in which to raise our family. It's really a beautiful place . . . . at least I think so.

I am not a professional photographer; I call myself a point & shoot photographer. I have had a genuine love for and interest in photography since childhood. My camera is a Nikon Coolpix S600 ~ which I love for many reasons that I won't list here. Sometimes I use my old camera which is a Nikon Coolpix 5900.

Photography is something that I enjoy immensely. My photographs & albums are treasured above all other material things I own. The memories that are captured and preserved through my camera are so precious.

I am glad that I have discovered City Daily Photo and started a photo blog. It's an honor to share my little corner of the world with those who find themselves here. Enjoy looking around my blog, and welcome to all who visit.

Red Sky at Night

Happy Thanksgiving from Juneau, Alaska!
Your "Red Sky at Night" photo is beautiful. It reminds me of when we use to live in Nenana, Alaska and the aurora borealis (or northern lights) were red. Imagine the sky being red like this but dancing all over. It's pretty surreal!
Have a wonderful weekend!:)

By the way, do you ever run into Kenny Chesney in Knoxville? :)

Hope said...

Hi Bernie....I have never seen Kenny Chesney in Knoxville. But, I am friends with some folks that know Kenny Chesney and his family. His family lives in a neighboring county to the north of Knox Co.

Perfect Skywatch photo Hope. Love the silhouette of the trees against that gorgeous red sky!

Very striking photo - the color is quite dramatic and makes a lovely contrast to the silhouette of the tree branches.
