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.

Forest Trail

Hiking Charlies Bunion

I shot this rose-colored black and white photograph along the trail while hiking to Charlies Bunion. Yes, an odd name – in 1929, two mountain guides from Oconaluftee, North Carolina climbed the area to inspect damage after a recent fire. With a sore foot from hiking, Charlie removed his shoe…the rest is history. The lesson: never underestimate the value of quality footwear! Putting aside the imagery that that description may elicit, you may enjoy a print of this rocky trail in your home of office. You can visit my gallery to select from a variety of museum quality prints.

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…
