Fall Colors in the Smoky Mountains along the Little River

Spending time along the small streams and rivers capturing fall colors in the Smoky Mountains was a wonderful experience. By using neutral density filters I was able to slow down the water giving the image a fluid movement and not gust stopping the movement. This is balancing act waiting for the leaves to be still enough so that there is no movement in them as the water flows past the lens for several seconds. When you view the image your eye see the movement while still seeing everything you captured as crisp and sharp.

Taking time out from our busy world is one of the great joys of photography. It gives me the opportunity to sit wait and watch the leaves to be still so I can capture the moment.

About europeanimages

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
