Thursday our nXnw Crew explored the Middle Prong Trail near Treemont in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. The trail runs along the Lynn Camp Prong of the Middle Prong Little River, along the prong there are endless waterfalls and cascading water compositions. At the time the flow of water was quite heavy from what John Deas has seen in the past. This was a great little scene along the Prong.

Thanks for stopping

High Falls – DuPont State Forest

Located about an hour or so from Asheville North Carolina you will find the DuPont State Forest. High Falls is located in Transylvania County on the Little River that runs through the DuPont State Forest. It is one of 4 major waterfalls on the Little River in this area, the others being Triple Falls, Hooker Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls. Above the falls itself, the river is level and calm. The falls consists of a wide,  ever-steepening slide over granite, and the water generally stays on the rock the whole way down (125 foot drop). In some places, the water free-falls for a few feet or jumps off the rock face, but it is not possible to get behind the falls anywhere.

We visited this place on a weekday and there were still crowds of people and really hard to get a clean shot, clean meaning without bathers, waders and hikers. I decided to slither around and get my ass wet, spread my tripod out like a spider and put a 10 stop filter on. It was the middle of the day so I decided I would go for the long exposure(s) Pano, with the new toy. I was really disappointed when my 10 stop filter arrived in time for my trip, but my Polorizer filter did not.

That being said this was a 3 exposure Pano

Lens and stuff-  Canon 24 mm F3.5L II Tilt Shift, 5 D Mark III, lens was shifted for the 3 exposures (L/R/C), tilt was around 1-1.5 degrees, three 13 Second exposure’s with the 10 stop filter, F16, this is a super large original file scaled back quite a bit for the web

Dive In, thanks for stopping!
