Down The Mountain

Down The Mountain

As part of my House Mountain in Knoxville, TN series…

Part Four: Conclusion

It was a great day hiking House Mountain, and I certainly would recommend this as a day-trip for anyone in the area wishing to enjoy the great outdoors! Bring the proper clothing, water and camera – and prepare to rest along the way to fully enjoy the scenery. And, expect to be sore the next day!

 Following 4 miles of hiking up the Mountain Trail (blue trail) and back-and-forth along the Crest Trail, I began the 1-mile decent down the mountain. Here are some photographs I took along the way…

It’s difficult to see, but if you look closely at Photograph 3 & Photograph 4, you’ll observe that the trail turns abruptly at times, usually associated with steep, rocky terrain. In a few instances, I had to pack my camera in order to free both hands for a safe descent around such turns on the trail. So, be careful!

Visiting House Mountain –

If you’d like to review my collection of House Mountain photographs as prints, then stop by my gallery at Fine Art America to have a look around! Thanks.

I plan to return to the mountain for another hike, probably along a different (red) trail…so, see you then!

Round Passages

Round Passages

Photography, Structures January 6, 2019

This photograph was taken on the campus of the University of Michigan, at the Law Quad. By rotating the image, then adding definition and lighting adjustments, it reminded me of the interesting home belonging to Bilbo Baggins, title character in J. R. R. Tolkiens 1937 novel, The Hobbit, and several modern film adaptations.

You won’t have to visit the Shire to enjoy this image, however. Just stop by my gallery at Fine Art America to discover a variety of prints available for your home or office. Enjoy!

An infinite array of railings loop into a spiral horizon, creating an open path and a dizzying trail. This design uses the Droste Effect with Filter Forge and is based on a free photograph from unsplash.com. I’ve added it to my galleries at Society 6 and Fine Art America, where guests may discover a wide variety of items available print on demand. Check it out…

Through The Woods

Through The Woods

Nature, Photography March 27, 2017

Through a stand of thin pine and birch trees a light glows, reflecting upon the lake where I shall swim. This vintage photograph was taken in Michigan’s upper peninsula, north of Marquette near Little Presque Isle, on Lake Superior. If interested, prints are available in my gallery at Fine Art America.
