Hiwassee Union Baptist Church

Since moving to Tennessee almost two years ago, I have done lots of exploring. I constantly search the internet to find interesting places for picture taking. I keep a list so that I can refer to it and pick out a place to travel to. Today we are going to visit the small town of Reliance, TN.

I saw a picture of this church and had to instantly add it to my list. I really love old churches. They have so much character. And when you find one this old still in great shape, well, you have to check it out!

Built in 1899, this church is situated on the banks of the scenic Hiwassee River. Standing the test of time, it is a true testament to the folks that built it.

My timing couldn’t have been better as the sun was setting and the sky was ablaze with color. I quickly surveyed the scene to find the best angle. The orange glow on the river and the fiery clouds really got me excited. I setup my tripod to capture the breathtaking light before it faded into darkness.

I plan on returning again to this spot really soon. It certainly makes me happy to live in Tennessee with so much scenery!

  1. Very pretty shot – my favorite fishing place is at the Hiwassee Dam – We will need to take our cameras next time to capture some of this – thanks for sharing.


    • Thank you Douglas! So sorry I missed your comment somehow. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by my blog and check out my photo. It’s a very beautiful place. I plan on visiting there again to see it in a different season.


    • Hi Jane, Yes I need to start posting more. Hoping this year will bring more pictures. I was so excited when I shot this image. The colors from the setting sun were lighting up the sky and it changed so quickly I almost didn’t have time to think about it. I’m glad you liked it. Thanks for the good wishes. I hope 2019 is a fantastic year for you as well!
