  • Baby Falls

    Baby Falls

    This is one of those waterfalls that, in my opinion, really stands out. While it’s only 12-feet tall, the broad flat-rocks lining the bottom of the river add a sense of scale and beauty. Located on the Tellico River in Tennessee, it would look wonderful as a print in a frame on a wall in your home, and would certainly make a great gift to share, as well.

  • Conasauga Falls

    Conasauga Falls

    Conasauga Falls stand approx. 30-feet tall and is located near Tellico Plains, Tennessee, within the Cherokee National Forest. The park road is three miles long and unimproved. In fact, since my first visit in 2019, it has noticeably deteriorated. Without repair, it may soon be restricted to 4-wheel drive vehicles. The trail is generally well-groomed on a steady, downward slope, with the last section rather rocky. Because the water was low during my visit, I was able to explore some distance downstream and will upload more photographs in the days to come.

    You can discover a wide variety of fine prints and other products featuring my photography, when you visit these shops: Pixels, Society 6 and Redbubble.

    Thanks very much!

  • Another Shot of Tellico River

    Another Shot of Tellico River

    I shot this photograph of white water rapids from down an embankment, slightly upstream of where Bald River Falls feeds into the Tellico River, in Tennessee. You can discover several fine prints available to accent a wall in your home, or workplace, when you visit these galleries: Pixels, Redbubble and ArtPal. Thanks!


  • Tellico River

    Tellico River

    I shot this photograph upstream from Baby Falls, along the Tellico River in the Cherokee National Forest of eastern Tennessee. As seen on the large boulder in the river, as well as in the second photograph included, river rocks often have hollow carve-outs. On site, there were dozens visible in and under the water, as well as along the shore – some measuring approx. 4-feet in diameter.

    This is caused over time when a smaller rock consisting of a harder mineral substance becomes caught in a depression or crevasse. Water from the river continually moves the smaller rock within this space, until it bores a hole into the larger rock.

    Anyway. The featured image is available in my galleries at ArtPal and Pixels. If you’d be interested in a print, then stop by to check it out. Thanks!
