Great set. That looks like mostly a Karst geology... limestone? Some of those falls look like sinkholes or the remnants of them...

What wonderful country! I like them all, it's amazing to see so many waterfalls all in one place. One of these days I'll make it to a waterfall and try one of these long exposure shots. It's just that there are so few waterfalls around me.

Seaain - Much of East Tennessee is Karst, including my home park. But Fall Creek Falls is mostly sandstone - the "capstone" that is more resistant to erosion allowing for all those great falls!

Harriet - Indeed an amazing place, and there are even more waterfalls than these that are very close to Fall Creek Falls. Most of them are on park or other public land - you should go visit sometime!
