Small Waterfall

At approx. 8-feet tall, this small waterfall can easily be enjoyed from a scenic pullover along West Prong Little River, heading towards Cades Cove. You can also enjoy this natural landscape in the comfort of your home, when you purchase a print from my gallery. Visit to see more.

Canopied River

Rapids On Little River

Water rushes rapidly downstream around rocks in Little River, located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Many different prints available.

Thanks for stopping by!

Layers In Nature

Chasing gravity, water rushes downhill along Little River, including on either side of this large tree. Located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, you can enjoy this view at home or the office when you visit my gallery and select an appropriate print type for your particular environment. Hope to see you soon!

Little River Rapids

Whether the river is full or the water is low, the beauty of Little River is always a wonderful sight to see, and hear. Located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, near Townsend, and close to Cades Cove, you can enjoy my landscape photography on a wall in your home or office by visiting the following galleries:

Poem: Water Always Wins

Reflecting to reconcile the passage of time
An artful adaptation before young eyes
I set aside distractions of the digital world
Choosing instead to carry a wooden walking stick and canteen
Traversing what were once elevated peaks
Dense rock now carved into gorges
The jagged, sharp edges refined and smooth underfoot
Warmed in the flow of nature
Water always wins.

Short Road Trip

On a recent road trip to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, I stopped at a pullover along the (old) Foothills Parkway to watch the sunrise. Then, I continued driving to Little River and enjoyed walking in shallow water while taking a few more photographs…

Abstract Beach Stones

Enjoy this digital rendition of random stones on a beach. It’s based on a photograph, to which I used Adobe Photoshop, Affinity Photo and Filter Forge creative applications. It’s available on many different items in my shops at Society 6 and Redbubble. Stop by for a visit to see…

Stones With Style

Another Roadside Attraction

Water cascades down a Smoky Mountains hillside, under branches and around moss-covered rocks. With a rainy weather system in place during my drive from North Carolina to Tennessee, low clouds were an obstacle of expansive views. So, I instead opted to take photographs at several different roadside stops – as seen here.
