ISO 100, f/20, 1/3 second, 24mm
  It's amazing how revisiting spots you've photographed before change with the change of seasons. I had photographed this same spot a couple of years ago in the winter time when the temperature was in the 30's and there wasn't  a leaf one on any tree in view. I ended up processing it as a black and white and sepia due to the fact that there wasn't any color in the shot.
  Yesterday was a different story, however, with fall color spreading throughout the Cherokee National Forest.
  As was the story with the first time I visited here, the large rocks in the foreground are what drew me to this spot and composition. What I didn't notice until I processed this shot is how the large rock wall in the background helps create flow to the shot as the forest wraps around it.
  Processed this as an HDR in order to grab detail all throughout the shot and I am really happy with the way it turned out.
