Very nice! What were shooting details? Did you use ND filters?

Ok being a fan of the Smokies and Falls, are these falls easily accessible or did you have to hike to get to them?
These are some really great falls. I've never heard of these and sure would like to see them, but with Arthritis I can't do any hiking. Your photos are very good. Sounds like you had a great trip to the Smokies recently.

I did not use an ND filter. I shot in aperture mode and adjusted fstop so that my shutter speed was near 1/8. Most of these falls are less than a 1/2 mile hike. There was a little uphill but it wasn't too bad. Most of these were shot in the DuPont State Forest, there are 3 falls very close together there. Living Waters is very close to DuPont. Looking Glass is off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Waynesville. There are literally hundreds of waterfalls so we try new ones each time we visit. Thanks for the kind words !

Thank you kindly for the information. I might manage a 1/2 mile. The DuPont State Forest looks and sounds wonderful. I will definitely have to check into that.

Katie,
Great shots! My wife and I spent a week hiking to about 30 of the falls in the Dupont Forest, Nantahala Forest and Pisca Forest. These were among the most beautiful. White Water Falls was another you should see. The upper falls is a very easy walk and a great viewing structure. The second section is really beautiful but the hike in and out are a real adventure!
