    Knight Television

    Armor-clad with shield, this knight traveled for many days across a hot, barren desert, in order to audition for the lead role in an upcoming medieval television mini-series. However, when he arrived, the set was in a state of chaos. Time to hire a new agent! In the meantime, you can enjoy great gift & apparel items available in these shops:

    Completed in late December 1911, the Ocoee Dam #1 is located in Polk County in southern Tennessee. It stands 135-feet tall and was the first plant to supply hydroelectric power to Chattanooga. It also forms Parksville Lake, a popular beach and boating area with 109 miles of shoreline.

    I took this photograph yesterday, following heavy rainfall associated with hurricane “Ida”.

High water on Emory River races around the bend and into a sunlit bank of lingering morning fog, at the base of an intact century-old structural support, from a railroad trestle.

  • Nemo Bridge

    Nemo Bridge

    Prints available. The Cincinnati Southern Railway was built across the Cumberland Plateau here at Nemo in the 1870s. It became part of the Southern Railway system in the late 1890s. Many small extensions like the Catoosa Railroad were built to tap timber, coal, and other natural resources.

  • Sugarloaf Mountain Park

    Following a hike at Benton Falls, I later found Ocoee Dam No. 2 – a hydroelectric dam along the Ocoee River, in Polk County, Tennessee, built between 1912-1913.

    At the adjacent Sugarloaf Mountain Park, I learned that materials to construct this rock-filled crib-type dam had been quarried from a hillside across the river, with structural remnants of a railway bridge still intact.

    If you’d be interested in a print of any kind, visit my shop at Pixels.
