I want to know what’s best! Have fun rating all of my photos. After rating one, the next will automatically appear.
Pick 10 for the best ever, 1 for the worst you’ve ever seen!
The Tremont area of Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of my favorite spots. The middle prong of Little River flows though it and zig zags its way through the boulders and drop offs, constantly coaxing photographers to its banks.
This particular area of cascades has always held a certain fascination for me. Getting to it involves a nearly vertical climb down, but it’s well worth the effort (you know, if you don’t kill yourself in the process).
I set the gear up on a large boulder out towards the center of the river and worked several compostions before I found this one. This was shot with a wide angle lens, so the foreground rock you see was actually part of the slippery boulder I was standing on! (And you do NOT want to lose your footing when the river is raging like this – yikes!)
This particular evening seemed to have a bit of mist in the air and I really like the “feeling” it gave the image. As I snapped away, I knew I had finally captured a photo of this area that I really liked!
