  • Small Cave

    I shot this photograph inside a small cave at the base of South Arch, at Twin Arches near Oneida, Tennessee. It was a narrow cave approx. 12-feet tall, with an opening in the rocks (upper left) allowing sunlight to filter inside. Prints available.


  • Twin Arches

    Twin Arches is a 1,500-acre natural area located on the Cumberland Plateau within the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, featuring many scenic gorges, sandstone bluffs and rivers.

    Both sandstone arches are situated end-to-end with a land bridge across the top. In terms of dimensions, the North Arch has a top deck height of 62-feet, a clearance of 51-feet and a span of 93-feet, while the South Arch has a top deck height of 103-feet, a clearance of 70-feet and a span of 135-feet.

    Hiking

    The park has two modern (septic tank) restrooms and a small seating area. Not far from the parking lot, the trail splits: to the left, you’ll encounter a set of steep wooden stairs (more like tall ladders with planks as steps) leading to the base of the cliffs; and, to the right the trail leads to the top of the arches.

    Prints

    You can find many great prints available featuring my photography when you visit my gallery. Print types include framed (customizable), art, metal, canvas, wood, poster, acrylic and tapestry. Thanks for stopping by!


    Information

    The text and image below are from an informational placard on site:

    Weaker layers of sandstone form the base of the nearly vertical walls of this narrow ridge. The weathering of these erosion-susceptible layers caused sections of the wall to fall away, forming shallow rock shelters on both sides of the ridge.

    The collapse and shelter enlarging process continued until two “windows” in the narrow ridge were formed. This opening enlarged until it reached the stronger and more erosion-resistant sandstone layer of rim rock that caps the Twin Arches.


  • Chimney Tops

    Visitors of the Smoky Mountains can reach Chimney Tops – a mountain that the Cherokee Indians called Duniskwalguni, meaning ‘forked antlers’ – after a two mile hike along a steep trail. It’s a beautiful view, and one that you can enjoy everyday on prints available in my gallery at Fine Art America. I hope you’ll visit and find something you like, either for yourself or to give as a gift. Thanks!


  • Cummins Falls

    Cummins Falls

    This photograph features a partial view of Cummins Falls, located in Cookeville, Tennessee. On the Cumberland Plateau, the gorge which houses this waterfall is mammoth and the trail to the base requires hikers to wade through the river on a few occasions.

    However, you can keep your feet dry and enjoy this scenery when you purchase a print from my gallery, in which there are several options to select…


  • Step by Step

    Step by Step

    Terraced ledges channel flowing water from the 75-foot tall Cummins Falls. Located on the Blackburn Fork River in Cookeville, Tennessee, you can enjoy this natural setting in a frame on a wall when you visit these shops: Pixels, Redbubble and/or ArtFlakes. Thanks for stopping by!


  • Rocky Gorge

    Rocky Gorge

    Featuring Cummins Falls, this landscape photograph is somewhat deceiving (based on scale). What I mean is that the waterfall is actually 75-feet tall, and the plunge pool at the base extends forward a similar distance. Also, the larger slabs of rock strewn about are typically 10-feet wide.

    If you’d like to fill an empty space on a wall in your home or office, I encourage you to visit my galleries at Pixels and ArtPal to find the perfect accent piece!


  • Scenic Waterfall

  • Cummins Falls

    Standing 75-feet tall and carrying the eighth largest volume of water in the state of Tennessee, this waterfall at the Cummins Falls State Park is a picturesque travel destination located in Cookeville.

    Inexpensive permits are required to enter the gorge, where a 2.4 mile out and back trail along the Blackburn Fork River offers scenic landscape views. There are two river crossings, so hikers should expect to get wet. Alternatively, visitors may opt to enjoy an elevated view of the falls from an observation platform, without fee.

    Prone to flash flooding, children twelve & under must be accompanied by an adult, as well as wear a life jacket while at the falls or swimming. In case of emergency, signs are posted which indicate safe levels during a flood, and there is also an evacuation route.

    Despite seasonally low water levels and very cold water, yesterday, the area is nevertheless beautiful and certainly worth a visit if you’re in the neighborhood. Facilities include restrooms and a gift shop, and dogs are welcome.
