  • Waterfall With No Name

    Beyond Triple Falls is a bridge and trail leading up the mountain, to an area known as Devil’s Racetrack. However, if instead you elect to follow the river for approx. 1/2 mile, you’ll come upon this scenic, unnamed waterfall standing approx. 30-feet tall.

    You can find a variety of fine prints with my photography in my gallery at Pixels.

  • Poem in Response

    Poem in Response

    After reading “Uma hipótese num bilião” (Portuguese, meaning A Hypothesis in a Billion) by Carla Milho – a lovely lady, wonderful writer and dear friend from Lisbon, Portugal – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

    When once I asked
    Please marry me
    You said, not now
    - with time, maybe
       But that was then
       And this is now
       And what will be, will be
       And so, once more
       I'll ask again
       - I wish you'd marry me
    Unto the years
    We'll weather every storm
    True hearts as one
    In happiness
    Our love, forever warm

  • Riverside Scene

    Whitewater cascades photographed on Little River in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

    Dappled light of afternoon illuminates aspects of whitewater cascades along Little River, located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. I shot this long exposure photograph as the sun moved behind a mountain ridgeline, using a polarizer lens filter.

  • Forest Falls

    Forest Falls

    Morning sunlight streams over mountain peaks, through trees and on to an edge of this forest waterfall. Located in the Smoky Mountains along an eight mile out and back trail, this autumn scenery is available on prints in my gallery.

  • Look Rock Tower

    After a short 1/2 mile hike along a trail up the mountain, I could see Look Rock Tower through the bare trees of winter. Made of concrete, it has three long ramps to ascend and features panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains to the east, as well as the Cumberland Plateau, westward. Photographed here, a southerly view.

    If interested, you can find prints available in my gallery. Thanks for stopping by!

    Poem in Response

    After enjoying “Rusty Rose“, a wonderfully creative mixed media artwork by my dear friend, Tiffany Arp-Daleo, a Bohemiam Abstract artist residing in San Diego, California – and, knowing that she also enjoys the Grateful Dead – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

    Just like San Diego 🎨
    Just like old road trip shows 😎
    Your art sings like Jerry 🎶
    Ramble on Rusty Rose 🌹
