Upper Big Branch Falls





(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Betsy and I have been to the area around Erwin, Tennessee, in northeastern Tennessee a couple of times to check out the waterfalls. Most of the waterfalls are small -- like Upper Big Branch Falls -- but they are pretty nonetheless.

I like the way the water seems to criss-cross on its way down. Very pretty.

It looks almost like a long braid. A really beautiful picture.

the names of all these falls make me have a fun time in my mind trying to figure out where they got the names. this one is really funny I am seeing look way up high at that big branch hanging over the falls, lets call it that.

This is a perfect falls. I like the grandeur of the big falls, but I think the small falls have a special beauty of their own. Great shot here.

That looks like a dyke somewhere has busted, so wild, like a faucet on full force.

I'm back to tell you that several people who commented on my "Monochrome Lake" post for Phun Phriday! wondered how it was done, so I posted a tutorial on it today. If you're interested just click here. Thanks for dropping by and your comment.

George, I think you feel the same way about waterfalls, as I do about clouds. :) I love all the pictures of waterfalls you and Betsy post. And of course, you know I think your flowers are just beautiful. I have never seen a tulip like the yellow with a red edge and I think I could smell that pretty white rose. :)

Sweet, dream, beautiful. Your photo suggests the beautiful music of that water.

Tennesse is a beautiful state. Drove through it a number of times from Michigan to Florida. Thanks for the pics. Have a great week.

My wife more so than I. She has Hispanic spicy DNA in her genetic makeup. Me, not so much. But we both love garlic.

When we split a Subway sandwich I give her my Jalepanos. I like them. But she loves them. Somehow we work it all out.

Hmm .. somehow a previous post got pasted with this post. Well, at least it might wet your appetite for a sandwich.
