Rope Swing

Standing 18-feet tall and spanning the width of Crooked Fork Creek, a tributary to Emory River on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee, Upper Potter’s Falls has a rope swing which is popular during summer months among local youth. These photographs were taken yesterday, following several days of heavy rain, so the rope swing was not in use.

To more fully appreciate the volume of water present, I’ve provided the following photograph of the same waterfall, taken in July 2020. Note: herein, I’ve edited (erased) the rope swing –


You can visit my galleries at Pixels or Fine Art America to purchase a variety of fine prints featuring my photography, including these two examples. Select from framed, canvas, art, metal, poster, wood, acrylic and tapestry. Framed prints may be customized to suit your interests, and other items are also available. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. WOW, my goodness. I suppose this is more water than usual in order to have a rope swing on that limb. The rushing of that water makes you feel small in comparison, and I give mad respect to mother nature! Thanks for sharing this Phil!!! 😮🌅🌊🏞💖📷

    1. Thanks, Kym. Indeed, this volume of water would spell big trouble for anyone in the river – except for an old man cautiously wading between rocks near the shore, searching for a better view. 📷😂 Have a great week, my friend! 🤗🌹

  2. This is truly spellbinding and extraordinary, Phil! 🌸🎊 Earth holds such sublime beauty most of us rarely see. Thank You for sharing the photos and video! It must have been quite an undertaking to capture such earthy divinity…🤩

    1. So glad you enjoyed the photographs and video, dear Annabel. 🤗🌸 The water was wonderful to record, with much power and sound! Wishing you a great week ahead. 😍

    1. No doubt about it, some serious power at play and in stark contrast to my previous, otherwise peaceful visit. It’s nice to see you in my neck of the woods, your visit of which buoys my spirits as I greet the day! Thank you, lovely desert rose. 🌞🌹
