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!

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.

Morning Cascades

Go With The Flow

Near the end of a gravel road within the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, I spotted this stunning series of cascades along the Middle Prong Little River. It was morning time, and you can see the edge of sunlight, cresting over the mountain to illuminate a small part of the larger cascade. A very peaceful setting, indeed.

If you’d be interested in a print for your home or office, then visit my shop to select that which best suits your interests: framed, canvas, art, poster, metal, wood, acrylic or tapestry.

Great Falls

Situated along the Caney Fork, Great Falls are a set of three 30-foot tall waterfalls located in the 883-acre Rock Island State Park, on the Cumberland Plateau of Tennessee. At the base, it’s almost like being in a rainforest, with moss everywhere. In order to stay dry, I came from across the river, with some creative rock hopping, though many people in the summer simply wade through waist-deep water to access this beautiful area. Prints available.

Gabes Mountain Trail

Prints available. This black and white photograph features Gabes Mountain Trail, which leads to Hen Wallow Falls, located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

Return To Hen Wallow Falls

With weather forecast to reach 60 degrees in Knoxville, Tennessee, I decided to wear shorts on a hike to Hen Wallow Falls, a 1.5 hour drive by car – forgetting that temperatures in mountain elevations are often much colder…whoops!

It was 34 degrees when I began my pre-sunrise hike of less than 5 miles out and back, along the Gabes Mountain Trail, through a hemlock and rhododendron (seasonal) forest. At 90-feet tall, I’d visited this waterfall once before, and soon recalled both the inclination and rough surface trail conditions.


If you’d like to accent a wall in your home or office with a print featuring my photography, you can visit my gallery to select a print type to suits your interests.

Thanks for stopping by!

Roadside Attraction

Prints available. This small creek is located along the drive to Cades Cove, in the Smoky Mountains near Townsend, Tennessee. If you’d like to see it in person, then drive beyond the tunnel some distance until you spot a small parking area on the left, close to and before a stone bridge over the creek. If the temperatures are between 30-34 degrees, as per my visit, try and remember to bring a pair of gloves…D’oh!

Moss And Ferns

Hiking into and through the gorge, finding my way across rocks scattered along Caney Fork, I approached what is called Great Falls – a collection of three waterfalls, each standing 30-feet tall. This photograph is a sideview showing only the edge of the front falls, with cliff-walls covered in layers of moss and ferns. See available prints.

Moss On Middle Prong

These three photographs were taken along the Middle Prong Trail, located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Prints (and more) are available in my gallery – looking to decorate a wall in your home, perhaps? Check it out…
