Rushing Waters, Little Pigeon River, GSMNP


Just a quick note to point out there was very little sunlight yesterday morning as I stood beside the Little Pigeon River taking images of the rushing waters in the Greenbrier section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As a matter of fact, as I made my way out of Greenbrier it began to mist very, very lightly. I didn't mind the inclement weather this trip. When you're in the Smokies rain can be a good thing as steam tends to roll off the mountains in pockets, slowly wafting its way up into the horizon, hence the name. This particular image is one of my favorites from my trip. I like the way your eye travels as you take in the elements in this photo. ENJOY!

  1. A wonderful image, Carol. Sometimes a cloudy day is your friend. I love the satiny look of the falls. We're you using a tripod?

    1. Thank you Mia for your wonderful comments. While I enjoy shooting water as such, I always want an image like this to have an intimate feeling too. Carol

  3. I don't usually enjoy time lapse shots of water. This one I do like. The natural rock, fern, and leaves framing the pool give a sense of discovery. The feel as Mia stated is sensitive.

    1. Thanks Grampy, I appreciate your thoughts. I love to shoot time lapse of water but I really also want it to have a very focused intimate feeling most of the time when I shoot like that. Carol
