Canon EOS DIGITAL REVEL XS, Tamron 28-80 lens @ 54mm, ISO 400, f/8, 1/3 sec.
  Today's post is from back in November on an early Saturday morning on the Cherohala Skyway. Roughly half way down River Road towards Bald River Falls I found this grouping of rocks in the river.  The long flat rock that enters the frame from the left really intrigued me in the way the water was breaking over it and falling off before it reached the end.
  I tried to get as low to the scene as I could. Unfortunately, to get any lower would have been to fall off the huge rock I was on into the river.  In November, or at any other time of the year, the current was both very strong and very cold so entering the river was not an option.
  This particular shot I took at ISO 400 in order to catch some of the motion of the water instead of blurring it silky smooth. Another spot I will surely photograph when Spring comes around for sure!


  1. Really love this photography Jerry! Indeed, that rock that creates the little waterfall there is most definitely the subject here, and I think it's composed perfectly. Absolutely serene and beautiful.

  2. Great capture. I agree with the long flat rock, very eye appealing. I don't think you would have done yourself any favors getting lower. I like this image from this perspective.

  3. Toad and Scott thank you very much for comments. I will be spending a lot of time on this river come spring time photographing. Can't wait!
