Into the Gorge

It was late afternoon in the Smoky Mountains as I was hiking back along Middle Prong Trail, glancing downhill at Lynn Camp Prong as I progressed. Given no recent rainfall to preclude reasonably safe efforts of descent to access the river, below, and largely indirect light from a sun somewhat low in the sky, I was optimistic about undertaking one last off trail excursion to capture the beauty of nature.

Per my standard cautious and methodical approach, I selected a route to make my way down into the gorge, pleased to discover this serene, secluded spot, from which I now share my photography.

If you’d be interested in a print for an empty wall at home or work, then visit my galleries at Pixels and/or ArtPal to select something nice to enjoy. Thanks!

    1. Its beauty is like a treasure found, not along a trail, but by following a faint flicker of whitewater through the foliage. I’m so glad you like it, dear Anita 🤗
