Waterfalls at Roaring Fork
On Friday I had the opportunity to go to the Roaring Fork area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I always get exited when I get to photograph waterfalls, you can create something that your eyes can not see. Yesterday was no different, I arrived around 5:30PM and ran down to the waters edge. A large rain storm having just passed though the area the night before the water level was high and the flow was great. A person could spend all day at Roaring Fork and still not photograph all the cascades and waterfalls.
Because time was short I concentrated on two waterfalls at this one pull off. The sun was low in the sky allowing me to get the long exposures I needed to create my photographs.
The 5D Mark II performed beautifully, the photos posted here and on my Flickr page were taken at iso 50 and ranged from 8-20 seconds in length. I will be returning to the Roaring Fork next week to continue photographing the waterfalls.
