Knoxville Daily Photo will post one photo per day taken from the Knoxville/Knox County, Tennessee area. Knoxville is the city of my birth, the place where I work, and the largest city near our hometown. It's a wonderful community in which to raise our family. It's really a beautiful place . . . . at least I think so.

I am not a professional photographer; I call myself a point & shoot photographer. I have had a genuine love for and interest in photography since childhood. My camera is a Nikon Coolpix S600 ~ which I love for many reasons that I won't list here. Sometimes I use my old camera which is a Nikon Coolpix 5900.

Photography is something that I enjoy immensely. My photographs & albums are treasured above all other material things I own. The memories that are captured and preserved through my camera are so precious.

I am glad that I have discovered City Daily Photo and started a photo blog. It's an honor to share my little corner of the world with those who find themselves here. Enjoy looking around my blog, and welcome to all who visit.

Boardwalk Trail Along the Tennessee River

A portion of the River Trail that meanders along the Tennessee River at Ijams Nature Center is a boardwalk. This boardwalk was built in 1998 by Don Niday, whose crew rappelled from the steep bluffs to construct this impressive structure. The views of the Tennessee River from this boardwalk are breathtaking.

That is a beautiful picture. I've gone back through all your old posts and loved them all.

Ijams is becoming a must revisit. Gotta wait for warmer weather though.

A beautiful view Hope! I've seen the Tennessee River from Chatanooga, it is the Tennessee out that way isn't it? I'm pretty sure it was!
I haven't been to your side of TN but have been to Chatanooga of course, Memphis and Nashville. It's a beautiful state...hope to get to your area soon!

What a great place to watch either the sunrise or sunset. "Peace like a river."

So many textures, the fluffy clouds, the current ripples of the river, the tree line. Love this picture.

I love the baby blue color of the sky and the rosy clouds. The river is so wide there and it must be a wonderful walkway to stroll on.

Denise said...

Wow, what a great place to take a walk, so incredibly pretty and that sky is gorgeous. Great photo!
