Long Description:
In October 1948, Ansel Adams traveled to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as part of an effort to take photographs of US national parks for a Guggenheim Fellowship. The Knoxville Museum of Art currently has an exhibit (link) displaying on-line the 47 photographs created on that trip for educational purposes.

Waymark WME578 and Waymark WME57F describe how this particular church was determined to be the correct location for the work of Ansel Adams.

For those want a closer reproduction, take a step left to have the lines of the tin roof be slightly askew.

Visit Instructions:
Similar to the above. Post your picture, but there's no need to post Ansel's image again.
