“There is a hidden message in every waterfall. It says, if you are flexible, falling will not hurt you.” ― Mehmet Murat Ildan
I love the sight of flowing water. I have always been a fan of visiting streams and waterfalls when I travel. When we went to Gatlinburg, Tennessee late last year I took a drive around the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in order to find some great scenes to capture with my camera. At one point I even hiked all the way down to the bottom of this valley to take photos of the Little River that ran through the park. Little did I know there were some bears nearby. I never saw them, but the people who were still at the top did. I did see bears while we were in Tennessee. One afternoon at the cabin we were staying in, a bear cub came up to the porch and took my bag of grilling pellets. Luckly, he left them after he realized it wasn’t food. He did, however, spill a ton of them on the ground.
I found this small waterfall near where I was staying. I took some of my favorite photos near where we were staying. It had rained a lot the day before. It caused all of the runoff streams to be full of water. By the looks of it you would think that I had hiked several miles to capture it. I found this scene right by the side of the road. Some of my favorite photos are some of the easiest places to get to.
