Nantahala Waterfall

Uploaded: September 09, 2004


Taken around 2pm in the Nantahala gorge after hiking around 7 miles with my camera. Used a really small table top tripod, and a polariser to remove some sheen and allow me to use a longer exposure. This gives me a very tranquil forest feel. Very strong leading diagonal and lots of triangles around the frame, lead you through the shot.

28-135 IS lens, at around 135mm
