Canon EOS REBEL XS, Promaster 19-35 lens @ 19mm, ISO 400, f/11, 0.5 sec., 3 image panorama
  Last weekend's jaunt down N  River Rd was quite eventful in that we found several spots for future exploration in addition to the beautiful areas we did stop at. This road has cascade after cascade littering the river.
  Our first stop that morning was at this 3-tiered cascade that consisted of a wonderful fan-shaped fall at the top with a shelf right below and smaller cataracts just further down stream.
  It was just barely light enough to see where we were going. and I found this little area in the shelf where a fallen tree, a very curved tree, and a set of rocks created a natural frame for the right side of the falls.  Had a very difficult time controlling shutter speed here with a light rain falling and very little light to deal with. Ended up bumping the ISO up to 400 to get a 1/2 second shutter.
  Like the shots of Bald River Falls I posted earlier in the week, the green moss was unbelievably bright and stood out.

  The above shot is the entire scene of this beautiful waterfall captured in a 4-shot panorama. This was a dangerous shot because the water flow was very fast and hard to move around to find an angle. I really liked this vantage point for the rush of water at the bottom left of the frame.
  Will definitely come back to this spot to get closer and capture some intimate shots, water flow allowing.


  1. Sweet shots man. Really like how the trees are all moss covered. Looks awesome. Nice work on the falls as well.
