Clingmans Dome

Located in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park along the state line between North Carolina and Tennessee, Clingmans Dome is a popular tourist destination. So much so, that on any given good-weather day, visitors may observe vehicles with license plates from 25 or more states.

From the parking area, it’s a short 1/2 mile hike along a paved trail, though the grade is quite steep. As such, there are several benches along the way on which to rest. There’s also a gift shop & restrooms.

Standing 6,643-feet tall, Clingmans Dome is both the tallest mountain in the park and in the state of Tennessee. It’s also the highest point along the 2,192-mile Appalachian Trail, and the third tallest mountain (after Mount Mitchell and Mount Craig) east of the Mississippi River. Lastly, it’s the 17th tallest mountain in the United States of America.

If you’d be interested in a fine print, you can see more in my gallery.

Morning in the Mountains

More specifically, yesterday morning. These photographs were taken in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee, and include shots from Luftee Overlook, Newfound Gap and the trail to Clingman’s Dome. If you’re looking for an accent piece to decorate a wall at home, you’ll find many fine prints available in my gallery.

Thanks for visiting!

Thunderhead Prong

A very rocky and mossy waterway located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, this is the scenic Thunderhead Prong. It’s a wonderful area to hike, and chances are that you won’t see another soul for the duration of your visit to the forest. Peaceful.

You can visit my gallery to find a great print for your home, office, or to simply give as a gift to family and/or friends. Several varieties are available, so stop by to have a look around and see what you can find.

Fog Over Wears Valley

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!

Scenic River

Here’s a photograph taken of whitewater rapids along Little River near The Sinks, a waterfall located in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains near Townsend. You can enjoy this scenery on a wall in your home, when you visit any of my galleries to select one of many fine prints available. Other items, also. Thanks!

Cades Cove

Here’s another view of Cades Cove, as photographed from my vehicle along the roadside. This historical region was home to early European settlers, and features several old churches, cabins and a grist mill. Visitors might also encounter bears, prevalent within this verdant valley, along the 11-mile (one way) scenic drive. You can find prints in my gallery, which make a great gift-giving idea, as well as an excellent accent piece for your home or office. Thanks for stopping by!

Cascades on Little River

Enjoy the beauty of nature on a wall in your home with my landscape photography, featuring cascades along Little River – located in the Smoky Mountains. See more in my Pixels, ArtPal or ArtFlakes shops!

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. To see more, please visit these galleries:

Terraced Mountains
