Early Morning at Rutledge Falls…

A week of rain has plagued the Middle Tennessee area but last night I saw what looked like a brief respite and decided to try shooting a new waterfall for me, Rutledge Falls.  Located very near Machine Falls in Tullahoma, Rutledge provides an equally impressive photo opportunity.  The hike to the falls is next to nothing but the climb down over slippery rocks was at best tricky.

These falls are located on private property that the owner has been generous enough to allow the public access. As I made my way out, a dog greeted me with enthusiasm and joined me on the short walk back to my car.

I thanked him for the escort and made my way to Machine Falls.  A steady mist came in before I could get there, so I just decided to head on home.  But, not before I found a couple photo opportunities.

Now, time for me to clean up, park myself on the couch watching soccer and take a short nap before getting to babysit my grandson tonight.  I wonder if the little guy will want to take a selfie with his Poppa…
