From My Archives: Blue Hole Falls



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

This is a part of Blue Hole Falls in Old Stone Fort State Park near Manchester, Tennessee. Tennessee was in the midst of a drought at the time of our visit, so much of the waterfall was dry. But we did find a small flow near the edge of the waterfall and I snapped this picture.

I like the color and hope Tennessee is no longer in drought.

This is a wonderful shot George! I particularly like seeing the streams of water coming over the far rocks toward the left and back side of the falls. I am wondering how this photo would have looked in Black and White?

That looks like slate. The whole picture looks very ancient, it is timeless.
