  • Richland Creek

    Richland Creek

    With the water low, I was able to explore Richland Creek more closely. Seen here, morning sunlight has crested gorge walls, casting reflections of gold and green upon largely still, shallow waters. See fine prints and more, here:

    I hope that you find something which you really like to to purchase. Thanks!

  • Morning on Richland Creek

    With the water low, I was able to explore Richland Creek more closely. Seen here, morning sunlight has crested the gorge walls, casting reflections of gold and green upon largely still, shallow waters. A peaceful, beautiful scene.

    If you have an empty wall at home and would be interested in a fine print of my photography, then you can visit any of the following shops to find the perfect addition as home decor:

    Thanks very much!


  • Return to the Laurel-Snow Trail

    Located in a gorge along Richland Creek in Dayton, Tennessee, the Laurel-Snow Trail provides hikers with many scenic landscapes, waterfalls and rocky waterways. During the early 1900’s, the area was home to the Dayton Coal & Iron Company, with many remnants from that era still intact today – mine shafts, arches, retaining walls, structural supports of old railways, etc..

    The park also has many massive rocks scattered along the creek, including this 40-foot tall boulder (see photograph). Though the water was low during my recent visit, this affords one the opportunity to more closely explore the creek bed. If you haven’t hiked this area, you really should check it out…there’s so much to see!

    Fine prints and more are available in my gallery at Pixels. So, stop by to find the perfect accent piece for a wall in your home or workplace – or, as a gift!


  • Emory Gap Falls

    Emory Gap Falls

    Standing 20-feet tall in the Frozen Head State Park of Tennessee, Emory Gap Falls can be enjoyed on a 3 mile out and back hike. As with many other waterfalls, it’s best to visit the site following rain – especially during summer months. As seen here, the area also provides interesting geological features. You can visit my galleries at Pixels and ArtPal to discover fine prints & more!

    Thanks very much!


  • Rocks, Water and Trees

    Apparently, these chaotic rocks have been stationary long enough for a medium-sized tree to call the area home. These photographs were taken at Emory Gap Falls, in the Frozen Head State Park and Natural Area, at Wartburg, Tennessee. The falls, obscured from view by boulders, stand 20-feet tall. Prints & more available.


  • Stack of Boulders

    Stack of Boulders

    This photograph taken at the Frozen Head State Park and Natural Area features the 20-foot tall Emory Gap Falls, situated in the background behind a stack of jumbled boulders and a tree. A variety of fine prints are available in my gallery.

    Thanks for stopping by!


  • Return to Emory Gap Falls

    Located in the Cumberland Mountains at Wartburg, Tennessee, the Frozen Head State Park and Natural Area has many trails in over 24,000 acres of wilderness. One such trail is a 3 mile out and back hike to the 20-foot tall Emory Gap Falls.

    Unlike parks in the Smoky Mountains, where the volume of tourists can at times be excessive, Frozen Head is a more remote location to enjoy the great outdoors. In fact, on this particular occasion, I was the only visitor present at the falls.

    If you might enjoy one of my photographs on an empty wall in your home, or to share as a gift with family and/or friends, then I encourage you to visit my gallery at Fine Art America and select the perfect accent piece! Options include: framed, canvas, art, wood, tapestry, poster, metal and acrylic.

    Thanks for stopping by!


  • Throwback Thursday

    This is me at 20 years old, circa 1984. I don’t know what I weighed at the time of this photograph, but certainly much less than I do now! 😆


  • Mount LeConte

    Mount LeConte

    The tallest mountain located fully with the state of Tennessee, Mount LeConte stands an impressive 6593-feet above sea level and provides visitors stunning panoramic scenery of the Smoky Mountains. Hiking the Alum Cave Trail up the mountain to its farthest most point, Myrtle Point, one can expect to log approx. 12 miles roundtrip. Or, if you book a room one year in advance, a few cabins at LeConte Lodge offer accommodation for a more restful visit. Either way, you can enjoy prints of these peaks with a purchase when you visit my gallery. Wall art selections include framed, metal, art, acrylic, wood, poster, canvas and tapestry. Thanks for visiting!
