  • Changing Landscape

    Changing Landscape

    Heavy rains saturate the soil, draining downhill to bolster waterways. Strong winds topple trees, some of which may wash downstream. Change is constant and it’s always a good time to visit the forest following notable weather events.

    Seen here, Middle Prong Little River is flowing fast the day after heavy rainfall. Located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, it’s one of my favorites places to hike, with a wide variety of diverse scenery to enjoy.

    You can enjoy this landscape scenery on a print in your home, when you visit my galleries to select the perfect accent piece for an empty wall…


  • Blanket of Water

    Blanket of Water

    Following heavy rainfall, Middle Prong Little River was high on the banks and with fewer areas to safely stand while keeping dry. However, the broad spread of water is always a welcome sight!

    This landscape photograph was captured in the Smoky Mountains and is available on prints for your home, office, or perhaps as a gift to give family and friends. Learn more when visiting my galleries at Pixels and ArtPal.

    Thanks for stopping by!


  • Rocks in the River

    Water races rapidly around the bend and over rocks, along Middle Prong Little River. Located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, you can enjoy this landscape scenery at home when you purchase a print from my galleries at Pixels or ArtPal.

    Hike when you can, and enjoy the great outdoors!


  • 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!

  • On the Move

    On the Move

    After visiting several scenic spots in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, I drove along a winding waterway between high ridgelines as I watched the dial on my compass. With the morning sun continuing to rise, only a northerly direction would allow me one last opportunity for another long exposure water capture, and, here it is – Middle Prong Little River. You can see more in my galleries at Pixels and/or ArtPal. Thanks for visiting!


  • Morning on the River

    Morning on the River

  • Rolling Rapids

    Photographed in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, this shot captures the point at which Thunderhead Prong merges with Lynn Camp Prong, to become Middle Prong Little River.

  • Carving a Path

  • Found in the Forest

    Found in the Forest

    While hiking the Laurel-Snow Trail in Dayton, Tennessee, morning sunlight crested the high gorge, streaming into the forest upon this historic setting. Over one hundred years ago, the Dayton Coal & Iron Company operated mines in this area, from which industrial vestiges remain. In time, the business closed pursuant to an accident in which many miners perished. Today, voices from the past echo through canyon walls, as conveyed to me by an elderly Park Ranger on site.

    You can find prints and other gifts in the following galleries…


  • Racing Water

    Water races downstream around the bend of Middle Prong Little River in the Smoky Mountains. After an extended spell of dry conditions, recent rains were certainly a welcome sight. Prints available.


  • Flow With the Rain

    Flow With the Rain

    Following a dry autumn season, this photograph was taken in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee after several days of rain.

    From the distance, Thunderhead Prong flows forward. On the left side of the image is Lynn Camp Prong, flowing to the right. At this confluence and downstream, this waterway becomes known as Middle Prong Little River.
