Middle Prong in the Smokies

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Monday was a beautiful day in eastern Tennessee, so Betsy and I headed to the Smoky Mountains.  We wanted to do some hiking, and I wanted to play with the lens Betsy got me for Christmas.  We didn't do much hiking, but we did drive along the Middle Prong Pigeon River near Tremont.  There was quite a bit of water rushing around the boulders in the stream, but it was so clear we could see the rocks at the bottom.

George, pretty shot of the rushing water! I hope you and Betsy are staying safe and warm there! Have a happy day!

Woda z strumyku szybko płynie i widać to na Twoim zdjeciu. Pozdrawiam.
The water from the stream flows rapidly and you can see it on your picture. Yours.

I'm sure I'm going to enjoy that new lens almost as much as you, through your photos!

What a nice day to spend using a new lens and looking at the water.
It certainly is fresh, inviting,
and COLD.

I love pictures like this because I can let my mind imagine that I am sitting there where it's so peaceful and listening to the water. Thanks for sharing this.

I know you enjoyed trying the new lens on such a pretty day.

You photograph water really well. It's actually hard to capture...movement and color

I like how the trees, etc are so distinct and then you have that pretty effect with the water. You probably did that with your lens and timing? Glad you share these things with us.

I've attempted a shot like this a few times. You've captured it masterfully here!
