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!
Situated in a forest of dense green, this spot along Middle Prong Little River was filled with beauty, peace and quiet – pristine nature without distraction. It’s a place where waters meet, as the river flows around a long island to reconnect.
You may enjoy this landscape on a wall in your home, as you sit back and immerse yourself in this natural environment, imagining the steady, gentle sound of water cascading downstream, or that of birds, hidden from sight though whose calls stream through forest trees.
Standing 120-feet tall, Mingo Falls is located on the Cherokee Indian Reservation, in the southern Appalachian mountains near Cherokee, North Carolina. It’s a short uphill hike with many steps and can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages!

A short distance further downstream from Upper Potter’s Falls is, you guessed it – Lower Potter’s Falls. A two-tier waterfall located along Crooked Fork Creek on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, it’s a picturesque setting with several large boulders resting on geological terraces.
Prints are available featuring my photography, with several options to suit your interests – framed, canvas, art, metal, poster, wood, acrylic and tapestry. And, framed prints may also be customized.
Prints available. Upper Potter’s Falls stands 18-feet tall and is located in Morgan County along Crooked Fork Creek, a tributary to Emory River, on the Cumberland Plateau, in Wartburg, Tennessee.
As visible in the video (above) and photograph (below), there’s a rope swing for folks to enjoy during warm weather. Also, the tree featured is practically flat – only a foot above the water at shore, and 8-feet at the edge of the falls. For purposes of recreation, one must climb on the tree (over the falls) in order to access the rope.
A Note About Waterfalls
Despite spending countless hours hiking around waterfalls, it never ceases to amaze me how much wind is generated from falling water. In addition to mist wafting into the air, oftentimes requiring ones camera-lens to be cleaned, there’s also a vacuum created near the waterfall.
This is most easily observed when (case in point) a rope swing is present: note in the video and 2nd photograph how the rope slants backward, toward the falls. This creates a false perception that a given photograph wasn’t level when shot, and appears most pronounced in views from the side of the waterfall.
Hence, if you were wondering why it is that I erased the rope swing from the header image, ponder no more.
