surrounded by mystery

I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.
--Harry Emerson Fosdick (1878-1969) American clergyman

When I zoomed in, I liked the lines and abstract nature of what I saw. Even though it's a very small waterfall, it has a lot of interesting detail in its layers of water and rock. This is Clear Fork Falls -- at least that's what I call it. I doubt the falls have an official name. After all, it's only four-feet tall (if that) and was created as a man-made fish barrier to keep non-native rainbow trout from invading the native brook trout populations upstream. Man-made or not, it's still a pretty place to stop along the Unaka Mountain Road to take a photo and be surrounded by mystery!


  1. Mark, nice work. I am glad I found your site. Go App State.

  2. Really interesting shot! I love the mysterious quality it has...and love the quote about mystery as well!
