Great Smoky Mountains Roadside Waterfall

Both Pam and I are suckers for a good waterfall. Here's an image I shot of one of the many beautiful waterfalls we saw while in Great Smoky Mountains National Park: This waterfall was particularly interesting to me because of the many levels the fall (or maybe cascade is a better term) had. I spent about 15 minutes shooting a variety of looks at this, while dodging traffic on the narrow road (thanks to Pam for warning me of oncoming vehicular mayhem! :-)) This shot ended up being the best of the bunch. I think it's because of a couple of things:

  1. The composition- I managed to place the various cascades in a line moving from upper right to lower left, with the final cascade flowing out of the image
  2. The shutter speed-This image is at 1/15 of a second, which gave just enough motion to the water.

I am very happy with this image and I hope you enjoy it as well. If you really, really like it please feel free to purchase a high quality, affordably priced, print. Just click the "Buy Print" link at the top of the image :-)
