Canon EOS REBEL XS, Promaster 19-35 lens @ 19mm, ISO 400, f/11, 3.2 seconds, 3 image panorama
  As I stated in previous posts, the colors in the Tremont area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park this past weekend were stellar.
  Yellow and green were definitely the primary colors though. Green being existing color of the Rhododendrons and moss on the rocks with the yellow of the autumn leaves both on the ground and in the trees. There were splashes of orange, pink, and red but the green and yellow were dominant.
  The image in this post is actually just upstream from the waterfall photographed in my last post MY GIRL. I loved all of the moss-covered rocks scattered throughout the stream. Wasn't aware of it until I got the photo merged together, but the rocks and Rhododendrons form an X in the center of the frame with the yellow trees and the water in the stream holding the shape at the top and bottom and all of them converging where the stream disappears in the background.  The yellow leaves dotting the green rocks kinda tie the whole thing together.
  I even got a small Eddy swirl at the bottom left of the image with only a 3 second exposure. Bonus!


  1. Fantastic colors here and silky smooth water.

  2. Man, I really like how those trees look and how they start to fade off into the distance. The way the water moves into the frame through the rocks really brings that home as well.

  3. Wow, you really nailed this one. Very well done.

  4. Chris, Aaron, & Scott thanks for the comments guys.
