    I've just celebrated my 50th birthday, and have decided to finally make my hobby photographing landscape. The wife and I own a couple of pieces of property in the Smoky Mountains, within easy walking distance of the Smoky Mountains National Park. If you've never been there, the photo opportunities are truly UNLIMITED !!

    I just want to make sure that I can post questions here relating to landscape photography, and please remember that I am a VERY new beginner to photography in general.

    Hello to all.....

    Hi Jim, post any questions you have and I'm sure someone here can answer it for you! Also, after you start taking photos, post some in the next forum down "The Photo Gallery - post your photos here!"

    good luck with everything :)
