Crystalline Flow by Miles Moody

I’m something of a waterfall lover. I love to seek them out and when I find them, I love to sit at their feet and listen to all they have to say. They speak to me in a language of music, not with words, but rather in a melody that plays to the heart. I wasn’t aware when I began visiting waterfalls that I was seeking a new way to listen and a new way to be. But after awhile, I started to notice that I enjoyed the feel I received when in the presence of a waterfall. I wanted to get as close as possible, and when I encountered this particular falls, I just couldn’t get close. I could see it thru the trees across a partially frozen Laurel Creek, too treacherous to risk wading. I’d need at 600 mm lens to shoot it from the road. The day was planned for photographing wildlife in Cades Cove. It was like this waterfall was calling out to me. Stop a moment. Sit with me. I’m not too far to hear (continued with Crystalline Flow 2).

    nice winter shot, looks like Meigs falls off Little River Road?

  • Yep, that’s the one. Very observant of you to notice :-)
