Hiking to the base of Great Falls at the Rock Island State Park, located on the Cumberland Plateau in Spencer, Tennessee, it seemed as if I’d entered into a rainforest of moss and water.

You can enjoy my photography on an empty wall in your home or at the office, or to give as a gift to family & friends, when you visit these galleries:
