Fall Creek Falls

Fall Creek Falls, Fall Creek Falls State Park, Tennessee. November 23, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Betsy and I went to one of our very favorites places — Fall Creek Falls State Park here in Tennessee — on the Friday after Thanksgiving to meet one of her Texas sons and family for lunch and a visit.

After a delicious lunch and much conversation we all went to the overlook to see Fall Creek Falls.  There wasn’t a great deal of water going over the falls, and the sun was in the worst possible position for pictures, but I tried to get one anyway.  I was shooting into the sun, so the falls and its bowl were in shadow.  But the iron in the water gave the rocks of the waterfall a neat color that I just had to try and capture.

    George, I should imagine that with plenty of rain, these falls would be spectacular.
    In Victoria in the Snowy Mountains region, we have a Falls Creek, a winter skiing area. Diane B. and I have both as students been there in 61/62, prior to the then TPNG as teachers. Falls Creek in those days was pretty primitive – no mod-coms! The club, we stayed at in those primitive days, is now a 5 star, members only resort!!!

    Ah – how times change.
    It was also “high country pasture” for cattle in the summer months, now no longer – pity.
    Your photo is quite remarkable – well done.

    you have posted many many falls, all beautiful, but if i could see just ONE of the ones you have seen it would be this one. it speaks to me for some reason

  4. Rick Says:

    The Falls is a great place to visit. I like hiking to the base, but coming back up is a pain.

  5. Andrea Says:

    Hi George, even if the water is not that heavy this time of the year, the height of the falls is awesome, i can almost visualize it when full!

  6. Linda Says:

    That really is a lovely waterfall, and I think you captured it beautifully, in spite of the challenges with the light.

  7. Sylvia Kirkwood Says:

    Beautiful falls and wonderful capture! I love the colors! Hope you’re having a great week, George!!

  8. Ginny Says:

    So this is the actual color? A strangely odd falls to be sure. I would like to compare it to another in different light with more water.

    George, that is a wonderful shot! I like the wispy trails of the water!! I admit, the sun could have been in a better place, but you work with what you got, right?

    It’s always good to capture the moment even if it’s not the “best” lighting.
    Sounds like you had a good Thanksgiving!

    George: What a great falls and you captured so well. I love the shadows in the bottom.

  16. Carletta Says:

    Even without a lot of water it is a quite impressive falls.
    In the conditions you had you captured it well George!
    It reminds me of a falls we hiked to many years ago in New Hampshire.
