Meigs Falls, Great Smoky Mountains National Park

It's a waterfall that normally is a few simple trickles viewed from afar along the motor route to Cade's Cove in the Smokies.

On this particular day, however, Meigs Falls was 'A GUSH' of water flowing fast and furiously to the edge of the falls and falling over fiercely into the stream that would take it to the Little Pigeon River. The torrential rains brought many opporunities for flowing water falls on this visit to the park this year. Something I anticipated while driving into the park late in the day knowing full well torrential rains and a tornado were impacting the park especially on its north side. Can I tell you how much I love the detail of the rocks in this image contrasted with the feathery water falling down the side of the cliff. ENJOY!


  1. One stunning photo, the trickle turned into so much more, for you that day, wonderful, Love the slow motion blur of the waterfall. Cheers from Jean.

  2. The fabric of water flowing over rock makes such a dynamic photo, Carol. You flowing water shots are always super!

  3. FABulous view of the falling water.
