This is a little list of seasonal photography locations that might be worth visiting.
weather you are starting out and want to challenge yourself to shoot in different places or experienced but are new to the area! Here are three places right in Knox County.
- Mid July: The Sunflower Fields!

There’s no real address. You just go down Island Home pike past Ijams Nature Center and take McClure rd to the end. You’ll know the sunflowers are still blooming if the parking lot is super full.

TWRA Sunflower field in South Knoxville.
Late August: Concord Park.
There are also some walking paths and some easterly facing shore too.
Early September: Tennessee Valley Fair
I love reflections! The pond at the Fair is gorgeous in early evening.
A few more Sunflower photos because they are in bloom and looking spectacular right now.
I walked into the sunflowers, and had to tiptoe to get this view. I’m just short or these sunflowers are really tall! I think I’ll got with the sunflowers being tall.
It wasn’t until I was leaving that I realized they’ve planted the sunflower patch as great big letters spelling TWRA!
Bonus Locations that may require permission
Whitestone Inn in Kingston Tn
Off of Broadway in Knoxville is a dead end street before you get to Riffle Ridge road and when the light is just right it’s pretty nice. Warning there is no parking available.
Melton Hill Park in Knoxville. Plenty of parking and plenty of wide open spaces.
If you’re really looking for snow but don’t want to leave Knoxville. You might catch some out behind one of the hockey rinks like the Ice Chalet in Bearden or downtown at the civic coliseum. Getting permission first is always best practice.
