The Waterfall at The Old Mill Restaurant in Pigeon Forge Tennessee

By special request of my dear friend Sophia Ismaa I’m going to share with you the waterfall at the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge Tennessee.

I was asked to describe the atmosphere of the scene.

As the late fall sun eases it’s way West the crystal clear blue sky fades into a soft purple in the Eastern direction and a golden band on the Western skyline. The shadows of the Great Smokey Mountains began to grow long as the crowd makes it’s way from shop to shop in the little tourist village. Pigeon Forge is a showcase for Appalachian artists. Paintings, pottery and woodworking can be found in almost every shop. The breeze carries wonderful aromas wafting from the Old Mill which is now a restaurant. As we make our way down to the Pigeon River below the mill the sound of falling water overcomes the clamor of crowd in the streets above. The golden sun is now disappearing behind the mountains and the streetlights are starting to come to life. This is magic hour and I have the power to freeze time.

    1. During the tourist season it’s densely populated. To me it is a large to wn because I’m used to a population under 2k people. I would be surprised if there’s more than 500 people that would be considered my neighborhood.
      You would enjoy the art and the shows. There’s also Dollywood amusement park close by.

      And thank you so much for the compliment of my photography. ❀

      1. Hard to imagine that… I live in London and we have millions of people here. Both small towns and big cities have a magic of their own which should be celebrated. Although small towns just have a … kinder feel.
        This is the first I’ve heard of a Dollywood amusement park and I’m already liking the sound of that. Not sure what it is but it sounds like a lot of fun!
        You are welcome. ❀️
