  • Indian Flats Falls

    Indian Flats Falls

    Located in the Tremont section of the Great Smoky Mountains, near Cades Cove in Tennessee, Indian Flats Falls features a beautiful four-tiered series of waterfalls, totaling nearly 60-feet.

    The trek is approx. 8 miles out and back through a scenic, forested landscape, and hikers commonly have the area all to themselves to enjoy a peaceful visit.

    Prints are available in my Pixels and ArtPal galleries. Thanks for stopping by!


  • 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!


  • Foothills Parkway Scenic Drive

    These three morning photographs were taken from scenic overlooks along the old section of the Foothills Parkway, located outside of Townsend, Tennessee, near the Smoky Mountains. If interested in an accent piece for your home or office, you can find prints available in my gallery. Thank you very much!


  • 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!


  • Spring Fed Waterfall

    This roadside attraction – a spring fed waterfall – was photographed on a mountain top along the newer section of the Foothills Parkway, located in the Smoky Mountains near Wears Valley, Tennessee. If interested in a print, you can visit my gallery for a great selection of options.

    Thanks!


  • 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.


  • Visiting Look Rock

    After hiking, I drove north on US-321 and turned east onto the Foothills Parkway. It’s an 11-mile drive up and along the ridge line to Look Rock, an elevated platform from which to observe the Smoky Mountains. This was my second visit at this location, and, despite being mostly overcast, it’s always nice to have a look from above the clouds. You can visit my gallery to see more…


  • 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!

  • Vintage Cooking

    Vintage Cooking

    Hey, thanks for stopping by! I’d planned to serve lunch to guests, today, but my new stove is back in the shop and this older model simply won’t suffice…alas. I’ll see what I can do about getting a fire started in the fireplace…

    In the meantime, you can visit my gallery to browse through a variety of prints offered featuring my photography. This old wooden cabin is located at the Grist Mill in Cades Cove, a verdant valley of the Smoky Mountains near Townsend, Tennessee.
