ISO 400, f/20, 0.6 seconds, 19mm
  The last time I was in Tremont in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, I stopped at the very entrance to Tremont and tried to catch a shot of the Middle Prong of the Little River running up to and under the bridge on Little River Rd. I didn't have my waders with me and really couldn't get the angle I wanted due to not being able to wade out into the stream.
  Today was a different story.
  With my waders in tow, I stopped at the very same spot and waded out in the river and not only did I get the angle I wanted but the tree branches and logs that were laying in the water were covered with icicles and frost and made for a fantastic foreground. After I took my first set of shots I noticed the sun was striking the mountainside in the extreme background and was reflecting on the flat water just in front of the bridge as well. Bonus!
  I pieced together a 3 shot panorama with the branches and rocks in the lower right part of the frame and the cascades from them leading the eye through the shot to the bridge.
