  One of the greatest things about Grotto Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains is the step ladder of cascades downstream from the main falls.  Today's post is down one tier from the main area of the falls and was the most picturesque spot we came upon.
  Tim found a couple of rocks over to the left of center facing the falls and I had to work this large, colorful rock that sat straight out in front of the v-shaped falls. The two large rocks that formed the falls were just awesome as well.  I normally would try to move closer and get a low point of view but even with my hip waders on, was afraid it was too deep just under the falls and with it being about 45 degrees out, it would have been extremely cold. So I stuck with the large foreground element.


  1. Love the POV on this Jerry, and such a beautiful spot. Well done!

  2. That water looks perfect. Wonderful shot.

  3. This is just so very awesome, Jerry! Gorgeous!

  4. Incredible shot Jerry! I love the composition and the waterfall is just amazing!
