  • Flowing Through the Forest

    Flowing Through the Forest

    Following rainfall, water from a robust Middle Prong Little River rushes swiftly downstream. This photograph was taken in the Smoky Mountains, near Townsend, Tennessee, and is available on prints for your home or office. Please visit my galleries at Pixels and/or ArtPal for more. Thanks!


  • Roadside Waterfall

    Roadside Waterfall

    A recent heavy rainfall saturated the forest floor in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, bringing this often scant waterfall to life. Here, both moss and ferns reside all year long, with the waterfall situated only 15-feet from a gravel road. Several smaller waterfalls can also be enjoyed during such time, along a muddy and scenic drive. Prints available.


  • After the Rain

    After the Rain

    Middle Prong Little River was flowing fast after recent rainfall, weather of which (in part) motivated my road trip to the Smoky Mountains. While I knew that the river would be full, I’d also hoped to capture some landscape scenes with fog on the water.

    Forecasts indicated dense fog alerts throughout eastern Tennessee, which were subsequently observed along the entirety of my cautious drive. That is, until I travelled beyond Townsend and into the Great National Smoky Mountains Park. Mysteriously, only scattered patches of fog were present?!

    As a landscape photographer, I’ve learned to make due with such potentialities, and, in addition to the many wonderful waterfront scenes I found, I also planned to visit the Foothills Parkway afterward, for a view from above the clouds and fog…more on that later.

    If you’d be interested in enjoying my photography at home or work, then please visit my galleries at Pixels and/or ArtPal to discover the perfect accent piece! Many prints are available.

    Thanks very much!


  • Poem: Rain of Rings

    A fading sun did set
    As twilight came to call
    With darkness quickening
    Nighttime began to fall

    A ceiling formed
    High overhead
    With shadows cast
    Reflections spread

    Through clouds, a rain of rings
    Dropped down across the sky
    In streams of shining gold
    As starlight, passing by

  • Umbrella Under Glass

    An umbrella is useful when it’s raining outside – and, apparently, even when walking inside a giant, levitating glass sphere. You can stop by my galleries at Redbubble and Pixels to discover some really cool gifts and apparel items. Open 24/7 with a roof – so, no umbrella necessary. Hope to see you soon!

  • Cascades On Little River

    Cascades On Little River

    What do you do when caught off-guard by rain, while seeking to photograph nature? Answer: find a bridge to shelter underneath and use a zoom lens!

    And so it was, on a recent visit to Little River in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. You can enjoy this scene and stay dry at home with the purchase of a print from my gallery. Sound good? Many options…


  • Wild Flowers On Cliff

    Fog In The Valley


    I photographed these flowers in the morning, on the edge of a very tall cliff at the Fall Creek Falls State Park, in Tennessee. The fog lingering in the gorge below adds to the beauty of this stunning landscape capture. If you’d be interested in a print for your home or workplace, then stop by my shops at Pixels and Society 6 to have a look around.

    Thanks!
