What an exceptional week we have had in the Tennessee Valley and with the chill in the air, I think you can say we have hit our fall stride. If that is not enough, the leaves are beginning to change.

Last week I had the pleasure to go to Knoxville for a few days and help one of my dear friends and fellow photographer, BA (Bryan Allen – blog.bryanallenphoto.com) with a workshop he was hosting. One of the location shoots took us to the Rice Grist Mill in the Norris Dam State Park.

Visiting the Knoxville grist mill got me to thinking about one of my favorite day trip locations, Falls Mill in Winchester, Tn. (www.fallsmill.com). With Sunday turning out to be one of those exceptionally beautiful fall days, I thought … Road Trip!!! I arrived just in time to catch up with my good friends and owners, John and Jane Lovett. I met them many years ago when I shot the mill for the cover story of a magazine. The fully operational grist mill was built in 1873 and has a 32′ waterwheel, one of the largest in the country and two beautiful cascading waterfalls within the adjacent creek.

This photograph shows the lower falls in all of its autumn glory!!!!!

Another week in Sweet Home Alabama!!!
