Precarious position

I have a few photos that I have taken from almost the same spot on a stream in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountain Park in April.

Somehow I got up the nerve to stand out on a rock in the middle of the stream. I managed to get my tripod and camera up on the rock. My bag stayed on the side, nice and dry.
I set my lens to 50mm and my exposure to f/16 at 4.0 sec, and ISO 200. I knew I wanted the image to be clear from foreground to background.

Mountain stream looking one way

I turned around and took a picture of the stream going away from me. The settings for the following picture were almost the same: 45mm, f/22 at 6.0, and ISO 200. Of course I used a polarizing filter for both of these shots.

The most spectacular scenery you can find up in the mountains is often not the mountain vistas.  (That’s a quote from me.)
