Sycamore Falls is a great hike close to Sewanee. Takes less than an hour to make it to the falls (although there are plenty of smaller, shorter water features and bridges along the way so stopping often should be expected). Cheekwood is a well-known estate that’s been converted into a museum and public (although you have to buy a ticket/pass to go) grounds. The photos above came from being around the house itself; here is another set from elsewhere on the grounds. All from a 36Â count endÂ of the year roll of Neopan Acros 100.
From a late-December hike along the Fiery Gizzard trail, taken with Neopan Acros 100 (shot at 200). Developed in Ilfosol 3 1+14.
A somewhat strenuous trail, but well worth the effort. I didn’t bring along a tripod so this was balanced on a convenient rock. Plenty of those around for using as makeshift supports! The water was so clear, and so cold, it was amazing. Sometimes I still expect all water to be the same as that in south Mississippi — silty, yellow and so thick you lose your hand three inches under. This was the total opposite and just beautiful.
There are more photos to come off this last roll of the year, but I had to go on and post this one (which may be my favorite from the walk).
