Forest Bridge

Water rushes rapidly down the Middle Prong Little River, under a one lane bridge I photographed in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, Tenneesse. There are many prints available in my gallery…

Waterfall In The Woods

Smoky Mountains


Following several days of heavy rain in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, visitors are greeted with an abundance of small waterfalls. Many are temporary and gone in only a few days. This particular falls remains throughout the year, though with less water flowing. Often, it’s a matter of timing & flexibility.

But, you can enjoy this picturesque scenery throughout the year, by selecting a print or other items from my online shops at Redbubble & Pixels. Perfect for the home or office!

Spruce Flats Falls

Located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, Spruce Flats Falls stands 30-feet tall and can be enjoyed along a moderately difficult hike of 2 miles out and back. On the other hand, you can visit my gallery online to select a print for your home, office, business lobby or cafeteria setting – that may be easier. Hope to see you soon!

Interview With Emojis

I wrote this imaginative piece earlier this year, about a woman I liked and whose name shall remain anonymous…


🎙 What is courage?
😊 Well, I call her by her first name – XXXXX. She is courage.

🎙 Is she strong?
😅 Yes. She’s much stronger than I, and less than half my size. And I’m not ashamed to say it, but I’m afraid of her.

🎙 What does she look like?
😍 To me, she is a vision of beauty – her eyes, face, smile…and she’s also equally lovely inside.

🎙 Have you told her?
🤔 Have I told her what?

🎙 That you love her?
🥰 Is it that obvious? Well, yes.

🎙 Hmmm…did she say it back to you?
🕵 Well, I think she asked me about the weather…but she didn’t say that she didn’t love me.

🎙 I see. And that’s fine with you?
❤️ Yes, it is.


I think it’s good to be able to laugh at oneself 😂 at times, and I hope that you found my sense of humor entertaining. Have a great day 👍

Waterfall In The Smokies

Moss On The Mountain


After enjoying a sunrise along the Foothills Parkway, I made my way into the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. There, this was one of a few roadside waterfalls at which I stopped to photograph along the drive.

Prints available.

River Splashing

Go With The Flow


Enjoy this close-up capture of white water splashing over rocks in a race to the bottom. This may be just what you’re looking for on a wall in your home…

Burgess Falls

Terraced Cascades


Prints available. Located on the Cumberland Plateau near Sparta, Tennessee, the Burgess Falls State Park has four waterfalls along Falling Water River, cascading down from over 250 feet in elevation. See it all on an easy hike of only 1.5 miles out and back, with restrooms and a water-bottle filling station available, also. Enjoy the great outdoors!

Lower Greeter Falls

Prints available. Located in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area , on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, USA, Lower Greeter Falls is a beautiful waterfall that stands 50-feet tall and flows from Firescald Creek. It’s a short hike along a moderately difficult trail with elevation changes, rocks and mud, and includes a 24-step spiral metal staircase down to the falls – one of my favorite places to visit!
