ISO 200, f/20, 1 Second, 19mm
  As Tim Owens and I were leaving the Cable Mill in Cades Cove yesterday, I noticed a little stair step up to the trough that feeds the water wheel. I immediately knew I had to get a shot from straight down the trough to the mill.
  With all 3 legs of my tripod standing in the rapidly flowing water I fired off a few brackets and was extremely happy with this angle. Don't know if I've ever seen a shot from here before. Not that there hasn't been any, I just haven't seen any. Tim actually climbed into the trough himself and sat on one of the cross beams to take his shots.
  Really like the way the low hanging branches frame around the shape of the mill in the background. I applied the Dreamland effect from Perfect Effects 3 Free at about 40% opacity on those leaves and branches to soften them up and darken them compared to the bright wood of the mill.
