    Roadside Beauty

    There are several areas along the road in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with wonderful views, such as this spot. If you’d rather not have to travel for such sights, you could instead pick out a print from any of my shops and enjoy this view in your home, all year long!

    Luftee Overlook

    A morning sun rises over the Smoky Mountains, as seen from Luftee Overlook, located near Newfound Gap & Clingmans Dome. You can visit my gallery to find many fine prints available, perfect for a wall in your home, at the office, or as a gift to give to family and/or friends.

  • Morning in the Mountains

    More specifically, yesterday morning. These photographs were taken in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee, and include shots from Luftee Overlook, Newfound Gap and the trail to Clingman’s Dome. If you’re looking for an accent piece to decorate a wall at home, you’ll find many fine prints available in my gallery.

    Thanks for visiting!

  • Fog Over Wears Valley

    Fog Over Wears Valley

    This black and white morning photograph was taken along the (new) Foothills Parkway, highlighting a stormy sky over the Smoky Mountains, with fog below in the town of Wears Valley, Tennessee. A variety of prints are available in my gallery. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Cades Cove

    Cades Cove

    Here’s another view of Cades Cove, as photographed from my vehicle along the roadside. This historical region was home to early European settlers, and features several old churches, cabins and a grist mill. Visitors might also encounter bears, prevalent within this verdant valley, along the 11-mile (one way) scenic drive. You can find prints in my gallery, which make a great gift-giving idea, as well as an excellent accent piece for your home or office. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Baby Falls

    Baby Falls

    This is one of those waterfalls that, in my opinion, really stands out. While it’s only 12-feet tall, the broad flat-rocks lining the bottom of the river add a sense of scale and beauty. Located on the Tellico River in Tennessee, it would look wonderful as a print in a frame on a wall in your home, and would certainly make a great gift to share, as well. To see more, please visit these galleries:

  • Shots from the Trail

    These photograph include: The Sinks, Cades Cove and Middle Prong Little River. You can find fine prints and many other products available in my gallery at Pixels.

    Thanks very much!

  • Cades Cove

    Cades Cove

    Here’s a photograph taken while on my recent visit to Cades Cove. It shows a southern view, facing away from the Smoky Mountains in the direction to which the peaks taper off.

    Bears are popular here, and I had the pleasure of seeing four cubs. One was in the woods near the road, and quickly ran deeper into the forest. The other three were high in a tree, barely visible as obscured by the foliage, though commanding the attention of a small crowd of 20 cars and passengers, below. Bears are very good climbers and one cub was at the top of the tree, approx. 60-feet in the air, causing the tree to sway quite a bit.

    You can see more in my gallery – thanks!

  • Sticks and Stones

    Sticks and Stones

    These cascades were photographed along Middle Prong Little River, and would look great behind a frame on a wall in your home, office, business lobby, school, hospital or cafeteria setting! You can visit my gallery to select the perfect accent piece, choosing from these print-types: framed, art, metal, canvas, wood, acrylic, poster and tapestry. Framed prints may be customized to suit your wishes, as well.

  • Footbridge Trailhead

    This photograph features a footbridge at the trailhead of Middle Prong Trail, one of my favorites areas to hike in the Smoky Mountains. The structure delineates the point at which Lynn Camp Prong becomes Middle Prong Little River, as Thunderhead Prong (not seen) merges with the waterway this side of the bridge, from the right. This narrow bridge is also used by horses, so watch your step!

    Fine prints (framed, art, canvas, metal, wood, poster, acrylic and tapestry) are available in my gallery at Pixels, and other items can also be found in my shop at Redbubble. Hope to see you soon!

    Poem

    Watching white water wash away
    From the mossy green riverbanks
    An inner peace transcends my day
    Blessed with such beauty, I give thanks
