While Gatlinburg, TN is beautiful all year long, fall is arguably the most magnificent time to visit if you are a budding or professional photographer. Right now the Great Smoky Mountains are abloom in gorgeous reds, vibrant yellows, and toasty oranges as the leaves change color across the mountains.
