Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS, Tamron 28-80 lens @ 28mm, ISO 100, f/11, 8 sec.
  Have had this one ready to post for a couple of days now, just haven't been able to pull the trigger.  I was very excited about my earlier post tonight so it got pushed back even further. Couldn't hold back any longer.
  I have said it before, but I'll say it again, I could get 365 incredible images if I went to a different spot on River Road and photographed every day! This particular image was from back in November at the very end of fall color. It was about 40°F at 6:00 in the morning and if you look hard enough, you can see some fog rising off of the Tellico River.  This was by far my favorite day on this river.  I climbed out onto these huge rocks that were about the size of a Volkswagon Bug.  The little set of falls the river was running over did not sound like a roar but was very soothing and peaceful.
  I was so amazed at these rocks. You can see the wear from the river running over them for years and years! Kinda like wrinkles in an old man's face.


  1. I love this image Gerry, very moody and serene at the same time! Great capture.

  2. Thanks, Toad! I absolutely love this place
