Overcoming Obstacles

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.
--Frank A. Clark

You don't see many photos of the fourth waterfall at the Blue Hole outside of Elizabethton, TN. Out of the four falls you'll find there, this is the most inaccessible and least distinctive. But the practical reason you don't see many photos of this is that it's covered up with fallen trees and branches. To get this shot I used my wide angle lens which allowed me to get close to the falls and avoid most of the distractions. Hope you've liked our look at the Blue Hole this week -- it's a beautiful place you ought to visit! Click here for directions.


  1. I couldn't wait to see your shot of the 4th waterfall. It's tough enough to climb down to, much less to photograph. Great job Mr. Peacock. I really enjoyed your Blue Hole series!

    Nice to finally get some rain so we can get back to some waterfall photography, huh?

  2. I found a great way to photograph the 4th fall.
