Scenic Driving

Morning In The Smokies

This photograph of the Smoky Mountains with fog in the valley was taken at a scenic viewpoint on the newer section of the Foothills Parkway, near Wears Valley, Tennessee. Prints and more are available in my shops at Pixels and Redbubble. Come by for a visit to see more!

Climbing Bears

I photographed these climbing bear cubs yesterday morning along the Foothills Parkway in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, near Wears Valley.

The first sound I heard was probably the mother bear, moving through the underbrush near the base of the tree, down the hill approx. 50-feet away. Next, I heard (and soon observed) the three bear cubs climbing the pine tree, shredding bark under paw during their hurried ascent – it was like a sawmill with wood chips flying through the air! I also heard the mother bear snorting a few times, likely communicating with her cubs, or maybe reminding me to keep away from their space.

If you look closely near the top-right of the tree shown in the second picture, you can see a sibling cub perched among the branches.

You can visit my gallery to find prints of Bear 1 or Bear 2.

Cascades On Little River

White water rapids cascade over rocks in Little River, located in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, near Cades Cove. You can enjoy this scenery from home or work when you purchase a print of your choosing from my gallery. You’ll discover many options available to suit your interests – for yourself, or as a gift. Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy the great outdoors!

Cabin At Cades Cove

Prints available. Over the rail, across the porch, into a room and out through a window. This vintage wooden structure is a cabin once used by European settlers of Cades Cove, a now historic tourist destination, located near Townsend, Tennessee, in the Smokies.

Frozen Fence At Cades Cove

Prints available. Obviously, it was below freezing during my recent visit to Cades Cove, a popular tourist attraction in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. This harsh weather, however, kept people away and I was able to enjoy the 11-mile scenic drive at a slow pace, often stopping in the road to take photographs from the comfort of my heated vehicle – as seen here.

Indian Flats Falls

Prints available. Indian Flats Falls is located in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, standing 60-feet tall and with four tiers. It’s an eight mile out and back hike which is well worth the effort. Thanks for visiting!

Sunrise Scenes

These photographs were taken from a scenic overlook along Foothills Parkway, near Wears Valley, Tennessee, and feature sunrise scenes over the Smoky Mountains. Prints.

Sunlight Streams On Waterfall

Morning sunlight streams through the forest and a lifting fog, reflecting on Indian Flats Falls, a four-tiered waterfall in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. This photograph is available in my gallery and would make a wonderful addition for your home. Thanks!

Indian Flats Falls
