Capturing Time

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.
--Henry David Thoreau

A long exposure shot (10 seconds) of Lower Higgins Creek in Unicoi County, TN.


  1. I can almost hear the water rushing on by.

  2. Great shot Mark, I've been there, one of the few places I felt the need for knee high rubber boots to hike the trail.

  3. Peacock, I checked today and yes there are fish in there. rainbow trout are what i caught. kinda sketchy up that way with all the no fishing signs around. I didn't hike up the trail with my rod in fear of being shot at, but are there more no fishing signs up the trail?


  4. Hey Ben - yep, lots of signs! The no fishing signs are all over that road and continue right up to the parking area. There are a couple no fishing signs on your right as you go in on the trail, but they soon stop appearing. I looked at the map of the area at the courthouse and it seems the private property ends a little ways into the trail, and then it becomes Rocky Fork - which is now public land. But I'd still recommend you check with the ranger's station in Unicoi to make certain. Beautiful area, isn't it?!

  5. Great ohoto of a lovely spot! Thanks for sharing your vision of the beauty of our corner of His creation.

    Have you been to Laurel Run (Hawkins County) lately? The falls are all great right now, and many of the early wildflowers are at an abundant peak.
