Sunlight beamed through the forest canopy in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, illuminating the trail along which I enjoyed peace and quiet on a morning walk. You, too, might enjoy this scenery in your home or office – if so, visit my gallery at Pixels. Several print types are available to select, in addition to other items.
Featured here in black-and-white is a tree which has given way to time, fallen into three section across the ground. I took this photograph along the trail while hiking at Fall Creek Falls State Park, in Tennessee.
The following collection of photographs features Cane Creek Falls – a portion of the many shots I took while recently hiking Fall Creek Falls State Park, in Tennessee.
Prints of Cane Creek Falls – and other areas of the park – are available for your review in my gallery at Pixels. Selections include framed, canvas, art, wood, acrylic and metal prints. Other items available, too – stop by to see more!
If you’d like to visit the park, follow these directions:
Cane Creek Falls
Standing 85′ tall, Cane Creek Falls can be seen from the Nature Center (10821 Park Road), located near the entrance of Fall Creek Falls State Park. Guests may enjoy views of this waterfall and the sandstone gorge from either of two observation platforms, one of which provides easy access for handicapped visitors.
Here are some photographs of Cane Creek Falls…
Next, to connect with the hiking trail near the Nature Center, it was necessary to walk along a suspension bridge in order to cross Cane Creek:
Supported with two expansive cables, the bridge was relatively unstable and shifted with each step. As such, I was later pleased with how well the next photograph turned out – taken from the center of the bridge:
Across the creek and then up some stairs, a sometimes rocky trail awaited my steps:
Another Point of View
I continued my hike around this first gorge, until I discovered another area from which to view Cane Creek Falls. Approaching this spot wasn’t easy – don’t trip over the edge! – nor was it necessarily prudent to cross the rudimentary fencing for a better photograph. Look closely at the third picture to see a man standing (left side) on the observation deck – across the gorge – located by the Nature Center:
I hope that you enjoyed this post, and please consider purchasing a print if interested. More pictures of my hike at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee will be forthcoming; until such time, thanks for visiting!
The Cumberland Falls of Kentucky splash over a rock ledge towards the river below, crashing into a watery mist.

While hiking at the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, in Tennessee, I climbed to the top of South Arch to shoot this photograph. If you’d be interested in a print, then visit my gallery at Pixels. Many print types are available for your review, as are customization options to make it your own!
Dry leaves crackle as I step along a hillside by the river, at peace in the forest beneath the vibrant, golden shade of autumn.
This photograph was taken along the Huron River in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I finally added it to my gallery at Pixels, today. If you’d like to see more, several different print-types are available (framed, canvas, art, metal, acrylic and wood).
Leaving dawn behind, sunlight filters across the mountain and through trees to illuminate the trail before me. If you’d like some nature in your home or office, this picture is available in my gallery at Fine Art America on a variety of print types.
This landscape photograph of an expansive, rocky shoreline was taken on Lake Superior, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Specially, at Presque Isle in Marquette.
To see it for yourself may require extensive travel time and expense. So, instead, I’d recommend that you visit my gallery at Fine Art America to bring this coastal landscape into your home. Several print types are available, including: framed, canvas, art, wood, acrylic and metal – customize to suit your wishes.
Snow covered trees and rolling hills adorn the winter landscape at Nichols Arboretum, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. This black and white photograph is available in my gallery at Fine Art America on a variety of prints. Stop by for a visit!
This black and white photography features a forest setting with large rows of deteriorating, moss-covered concrete slabs aligned in a row. If you’d be interested in seeing more, don’t stumble through the woods hoping to uncover an ancient civilization – stop by my gallery at Fine Art America, instead.
This landscape photograph features a rocky outcropping on House Mountain, located near Knoxville, Tennessee. The mountain stands 1000′ above the surrounding valley. It has two different trails to the top, leading to a 1.5 mile ridge extending from end to end, which offers wonderful panoramic-views. The scene here is located along the White Trail which finishes at the West Overlook.
If you’d be interested in a print, then visit my gallery at Fine Art America. Enjoy!
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!
