I shot this black and white morning photograph from a scenic overlook on Chilhowee Mountain, located in the Cherokee National Forest, near Benton, Tennessee. Several prints are available in my gallery, including: canvas, framed, acrylic, metal, wood, art, poster and tapestry. Other items, too.
This morning landscape scene is based on a photograph of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, as captured from an overlook in the Cherokee National Forest, near Benton, Tennessee. It’s been stylized, including sketchy painting and an added textural layer, to give it a vintage quality.
If you’d be interested, prints are available in my gallery on a variety of options. Customizations can be made on framed prints, as well. So, stop by and have a look around when you’re in the neighborhood. Thanks!
Shadows grow to consume the valley before sunset, as I approached the terminus of Thunderhead Prong Quiet Walkway. At this time of day, distant stumps in the forest begin to take the shape of bears, and sudden sounds are perceived with a heightened sense of interest. I’m aware that this trail is only hiked infrequently, and that I’m all alone in nature.
This is Thunderhead Prong in the Smoky Mountains, where the trail meets the waterway, at left, and a rocky incline, at right, becomes too steep to proceed.
If you’d be interested in a print of my photography, then please visit my gallery to select the best suited option. Print types include framed, canvas, poster, metal, art, acrylic, wood and tapestries. Framed prints may be customized, also.
Having read “A Leitura” (Portuguese, translated as The Reading), written by a very talented writer, beautiful woman and dear friend, Carla Milho – wherein she shares thoughts regarding emotion and perceptions – I was inspired to write this poem in response…
To see your eyes As I awake – my dream must have come true
Soothing, your smile Warming, my heart Together, here with you
Message to Carla: Your green eyes captivate with a beauty so grand as to melt the hearts of those whose vision you enter. Were good fortune to cross my path, such that tomorrow would see us sharing time together, I would forever be blessed with your presence, to appreciate wholeheartedly the joy which you so humbly, yet abundantly, convey. You, my dear Carla, more than any other, have the power to make dreams come true.

Following a stop to enjoy Fog on the Water, and then a very short hike to see Morning on the River, I next drove to the trailhead of Middle Prong Trail, keeping right at the split to hike along Thunderhead Prong Quiet Walkway. This is Thunderhead Prong, and, yes – I did have the trail to myself.
Interested parties can find fine prints and more in these galleries: Pixels, Redbubble and ArtPal. Many options are available, so stop by and have a look!
