This is another image from my last trip to the Smokies in the Greenbriar section of the park, I pulled over at the confluence of the Pigeon River and another smaller creek, I climbed over the side and waded out about 20 feet into the creek to get this shot. I liked how the light pulls you up the creek into the image, I slowed down my shutter speed to get the “frosty” look as the water flowed over the rocks.
I was going to make the 8 mile hike up to and back from Ramsey’s Cascade but I ran out of light so I just worked the creek up to the trailhead. There are so many photo ops in the Smokies I almost hate going any more because I never feel I can do the area justice, it is almost a place you have to live near to be able to get a good feel for the area. Along with wildflowers, stream and waterfall images are my favorite type to capture, they have such a peaceful mood to them I really enjoy photographing.
