Little Pigeon River

The first time I took a close look at this image I have to a admit I really didn't care for it all that much. And then today I took a closer look, and decided, yes, I like this image. What's not to love about shiny green moss growing on rocks and the water falling across the rocks in the foreground has such a mystical feel to it. But what I really like is the light and how it falls on the rocks. Those shiny rocks remind me of jewelry. I admit it's work photographing rushing water like this, but the results far outweigh the work. ENJOY!


  1. Really love what you did here with the close up. It's much trickier in my experience doing close ups with water when most expect a landscape approach. I noticed that you may have run into a few hot spots. Do you have a polarizer? Also cloudy days help too. The polarizer is awesome as it removes silver contrast on cloudy days, removes reflections and takes away 2 stops of light for those longer exposures. If you are aware of this info forgive me for stepping on your toes. Awesome stuff! Makes me miss the streams and waterfalls myself.

    1. Thanks Jarred. I actually didn't use a polarizer on the images I took that day. It was very overcast, but perhaps I'll consider it the next time. I can always use the help so don't worry about stepping on my toes. Carol

    It is very pretty. I like the moss, too.

  3. This is really very beautiful Carol. So peaceful, serene and simply refreshing to look at. Makes me want to dangle my hot toes (over 100 degrees here) into the water. Delightful!
