Small Waterfall on US221 – April 9, 2012
US Highway 221 between Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock is littered with these small waterfalls and I decided to check this one out. I had the pleasure of seeing several really good photographers post long exposures of flowing waters and wanted to try this. But being without filters or a tripod, wasn’t sure I could pull it off.
So finding a spot in the shadows to eliminate the bright sunlight, I sat the camera on a rock wall for stabilization and shot several test pictures, finally settling on this one. I think I got lucky! Enjoy.
F16; 1/5 second; ISO 800.
