This is a rework of one of my old gallery images. It's in the Smoky Mountain National Park on the Tennessee side. It's on the road to Cades Cove just to the right before passing through the tunnel. THIS IMAGE IS COPYRIGHTED AND NOT AUTHORIZED TO BE POSTED ON ANY OTHER WEBSITE!

Oh. Man. I want to be here. Instead of at work. In fact, instead of almost anywhere. Other than the rushing of the water it's obviously a clam spot, as the leaves laying on the rocks show. Good shutter control, Russ, to get the water milky. To me that always improves a cascade shot.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

It does look like a Happy Place. In fact, it looks like a painting of a Happy Place. Good work.

Lovely autumn colours and lighting in this image. The water flow between the rocks looks very nice. Altogether a very well composed and photographed image. Excellent!

Lovely composed photo!
Great autumnal colours, excellent lead in and with just the right amount of motion blur.

I can see why that would be your happy place. I would be happy there, too, unless I left home without my camera! Super colors and clarity, Russ. Gorgeous shot all the way through.

I love scenes like this one, with the peacefulness of the rushing water of the rocks. I'd just sit there and listen to the sounds and fresh air. Gorgeous autumn scene and depth. Right into my favs and also downloaded to save for my DT - thanks for this beauty

This is a gorgeous shot, Russ. It makes me want autumn to get here to see scenes like this. No autumn in the south is complete without a trip to the Smokies.

Lovely, warm glow of an autumn scene, against the coolness of the flowing water. Just perfect. Great shot!
