"Up the Creek" is a typical, heartwarming scene from nearly anywhere in Northeast Tennessee on a warm sunny day. I spotted this beautiful red boat tucked back in an alcove, just waiting for its owner to take it for a spin upstream. Just across the creek was an old wooden canoe tied up at a small floating dock of sorts. Lakes, rivers, creeks and streams in Northeast Tennessee are teeming with fish, and fishing is quite an avid hobby in the region. This photograph was made on a summer day when things were quiet and peaceful along Beaver Creek near Bristol, Tennessee. Such a relaxing way to spend the day! I digitally enhanced the original image to bring out the fine details in this artwork. Enjoy!
