"Little River At The Y" Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee<br />
<br />
This picture was recorded shortly after daybreak near the "Y" just inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park south of Townsend. The camera faced the sun as it was rising behind the mountain at the top center of the image so the scene contrast was quite large. Negative development time was decreased substantially to reduce image contrast. I selected a shutter speed to blur the water enough to provide a feeling of movement but still capture the water's flow patterns. The impression of moving water is good and the feeling of downhill movement is strong, especially in the lower left quadrant of the image. The mist rising from the river adds to the early morning mood of the black and white photo.
