ISO 400,  f/20, 1/2 second, 19mm
  One of the areas we visited along the Blue Ridge Parkway on Sunday was Skinny Dip Falls. To get there you stop at the Looking Glass Rock Overlook. Across the road from the parking area you will find a path that leads 1/2 miles over rocks and roots through the forest to a 3-tier waterfall.
  The last tier of Skinny Dip Falls runs under a foot bridge before tumbling down a few cascades into the brightly colored forest.
  Today's post is one of those downstream cascades that I photographed looking downstream instead of back upstream at the falls. This waterfall created a wonderful flow to the image from the cascade rocks in the foreground to the autumn tree reflection in the background.
  This was probably my favorite shot of the day for more than just the visual flow reasoning. While stepping across rocks to get to this vantage point, I accidentally stepped mid-shin into the stream after falling off balance. It was well worth getting a soaker, though, for this shot.

  1. I personally think this is one of your best, Jerry. I really like the flow and the detail of the leaves on the rocks is a real visual bonus. Nice job!
