Watery Wednesday #135: Threads of Water

Cascade near Big Branch Falls, Erwin, Tennessee. December 10, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

The lighting wasn’t the greatest, but I like the way the water flowed over and around rocks at Big Branch Falls near Erwin, Tennessee.  A slow shutter speed created threads of water flowing down the hill.

    I love the way you make the water silky. A great shot. I still haven’t mastered that very well yet. I can’t hold the camera still enough.

    It is georgous and looks so cleansing. I would never have thouight of a slow shutter speed, I use stop motion for these kinds of things.

    I can almost hear that water roaring through the forest!


    With water they say that the best
    Is clearest when put to the test;
    No sediment there
    To cause wear and tear—
    Pure water sure beats all the rest!

    Love the shapes of the water…really neat shot! I am thinking at Halloween you could turn that into a black/white photo and the water could look like ghosts LOL

    I do admire the slow shudder speed – lovely George!
