Canon EOS REBEL XS, Promaster 19-35 lens @ 19mm, ISO 400, f/8, 1.3 sec.
  Enjoyed some incredible fall color in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Sunday morning. My good friend Tim Owens, Jocy, and I got out early and drove to Tremont and hiked the Middle Prong Trail. What a great, great trail. As far as I am concerned, this was an ideal place to experience the Smoky's fall color.
  I have to thank my friend John Deas for cluing us into this trail. He told me about it last week and after talking to Tim about it, we had to go and man were we glad. Cascade after cascade and green, moss covered rocks, and pink, orange, and yellow trees everywhere. Leaves littered the rocks and river beds. When the sun started hitting the tops of the trees the reflections were incredible.
  Today's post was taken just in front of Lower Lynn Camp Falls.  This shelf took a little bit of a chore to access through rocks and rhododendrons but once I got there it was well worth it. This shelf filters down through this small cascade and the pool above reflects the green rocks and colorful trees above fabulously.  I framed the shot so that the horizontal lines of the shelf along with the stream flowing to left worked through the shot back to the colorful trees in the background.
  One of many to come from this wonderful jaunt into the park. Keep your eyes open for further posts.

  2. This is fantastic Jerry. Perfect setting, and so well done!

  3. Very nice. Those fall color leafs really set themselves well with the waterfall.

  4. Really cool shot. I like that little fall and how still that pond above looks.

  5. Wow. Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone.
