Mole,
You are the master of water fall photography, I like them all.

Were these taken hand held?

Some old friends that I served with in the Navy are having a reunion on Douglas Lake near Sevierville/Pigeon Forge in April. I don't know if I will be able to make it, but I'd love to see that part of the country. Is that in your neck of the woods?

Jim

Jim - So glad you enjoyed these.

Were these hand held? No, I have had very little success with hand held waterfalls. A small tripod and a polarizing filter are my usual tools for these. Perhaps someone with steadier hands could accomplish hand held waterfall photos, but not me...

Douglas lake is about 70 miles southeast of us, and is indeed in a very beautiful corner of the state. April is a great time to visit too! Hope you are able to make it, and will post some photos of your trip. If you decide to travel about 70 miles on up the road towards us, just let me know...

Absolutely wonderful photos, Mole. I cannot pick a favorite. I found the Millstone Creek waterfall the most surprising, because of the green leaves surrounding the waterway. I'm familiar with coniferous evergreens, of course, but those shrubs (rhododendrons?) appear to be deciduous evergreens, which of course is a contradiction. If you had told me those photos were taken in mid-summer, I would have believed it.

I echo what Jim said, that you are the waterfall master. These shots are all fabulous.

MtnMan - Glad you enjoyed the flowing water and the green wintry scenes! Yes, our region does stay rather green even (to some degree) in wintertime. Our two native Rhododendrons (Catawba and Rosebay) are broad-leafed evergreens. Our native Azaleas are also (botanically) same genus as Rhododendron, but are deciduous. Then there's the Bald Cypress in West Tennessee, which is a conifer, but is also deciduous!!

Lou - You are too kind!
