Spent this morning in the Cherokee National Forest with Alex Banakas photographing the sunrise at Turkey Creek Overlook on the Cherohala Skyway and then shooting waterfalls along River Rd.
Alex had some prior family commitments that had him leave about
10:30. When he dropped me off I drove back towards the start of River Rd
and stopped at a wonderful spot that I have shot at many times.
Normally, I wouldn't have dreamed of taking this shot with the sun
striking the water but the photography rebel in me was determined to
take a shot here. I stacked a polarizer, 3 Stop ND, & a Graduated 3
stop ND filter on the lens and bracketed a set of shots. I was
sitting on a large rock to take the picture and right where the water
broke off of the rock the water was a teal color that just beautiful.
