This black and white morning photograph was taken along the (new) Foothills Parkway, highlighting a stormy sky over the Smoky Mountains, with fog below in the town of Wears Valley, Tennessee. A variety of prints are available in my gallery. Thanks for stopping by!
I shot this Smoky Mountains sunrise photograph from a scenic overlook along the (old) Foothills Parkway, near Townsend, Tennessee. Currently under construction, I’m looking forward to returning to this area. Meanwhile, you can enjoy my photography on many fine prints and other items, when you visit these galleries –
There are times I feel I should refrain
From the sounds that drum as rhyme
Yet, your beauty shines through poetry
Like your smile, your words sublime
Having read “Twilight’s First Blush“, written by a lovely poetess and friend from the Valley of the Sun, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein she conveys a romantic recollection at dawn & shares her welcomed sense of humor – I was inspired to write this poem in response…
On a late night cruise
To a rendezvous
Just seventeen miles or so
It’s the magic hour
When night fades to day
And the cock begins to crow
In romantic waves
Rhythm fills the air
Glances cast amorously
Soon, a warm embrace
On the edge of love
Two hearts sing in rhapsody
Til the morning draws
Colors peach to blue
As faint starlight blinks farewell
Cheers, to drift once more
On this desert sea
Over sand and under spell

Thanks for stopping by!
In the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, beyond the gravel road and across a foot bridge near the trailhead of Middle Prong Trail, hikers can keep to the right to follow Thunderhead Prong Quiet Walkway.
This trail is less commonly hiked, though offers several beautiful areas with easy access along Thunderhead Prong. Case in point, this photograph was taken approx. 1.5 hours after sunrise, as sunlight crested mountain tops from the east, filtering through sparse clouds into the forest to illuminate an area of trees.
Prints. You can visit my gallery to discover a selection of fine prints available – a perfect accent for the home, office, business lobby, hospital or cafeteria setting! Select among framed, canvas, art, wood, acrylic, poster, metal and tapestry. And, framed prints may be further customized to suit your interests.
Rays of morning sunlight illuminate this Smoky Mountains landscape, reflecting off clouds and warming a heavy fog bank in the valley below. This scenic sunrise photograph was taken near Townsend, Tennessee, along the old section of the Foothills Parkway. Many fine prints and other items can be found in the following galleries…
