As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.
--Carl Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist
Another Doe River Gorge shot from last weekend. I always enjoy photographing the two tunnels there - there's something about the contrast of light and dark and the curving lines that just works for me. I can't image how difficult it was in the early 1880s to construct the "Tweetsie Railroad" from Johnson City, TN to Cranberry, NC. Those at Doe River Gorge Ministries have done a wonderful job restoring and preserving their section of the railroad. Click here to see a similar shot taken in autumn.
