Some really nice shots. The Smokies are one of my favorite areas to visit. The Cades Cove area is a great place for wildlife and some old buildings.

Thanks! Next time I'll remember the tripod!

Yes, indeed!! My wife & I thoroughly enjoy that area. Next time I'll remember to give you a shout before we come down. Thanks very much, mole! The cameras make me look good

Nice series! I especially like the last one. The contrast somehow makes me feel the refreshingly cool air above the water and under the shadows.

i love creeks like these... one of these days, i really need to get back to that part of the country for a photo trip! one thing that would make all of these more pleasing, in my humble opinion, would be using a slow shutter (1/2 to 1-1/2 seconds) to blur the water while keeping the surroundings in sharp focus. you need a tripod to do it, and you'd need to stop down quite a bit in order to get the speed that slow without filters, but if you haven't tried it, give it some thought. especially for rapids or small waterfalls, it produces very pleasing results.

I've tried it before and like the results. Unfortunately, I'd forgotten my tripod on this trip and only had my monopod available.

Thanks very much for the reply gj. Have filed it for reference. I really like trying to take running water shots and these look great.

Cheers
