My inspiration for taking photographs is the beauty of nature. I have traveled to Tennessee to Cherokee National Forest and spend a week immersed in the forest and beauty of the area. I've taken probably thousands of photos of this waterfall over the past 20+ years and it still inspires me to take more. I come home with 1500+ photos every year and enjoy looking at them all year until i can see the area in person again. Many of my photos are hanging in our living room just to remind me of why we make the trip every year. I find beauty close to home as well, but my trips to Tennessee and Cherokee National Forest are restorative and inspirational.
