      We visited Deep Creek in the Great Smokies near Bryson City in October at what turned out to be the height of autumn color. Tom Falls is about 200 yards from the trail head and is one of 3 easily accessible waterfalls along the well tended trails. My wife called me over to use the overhead branch to frame the water.

      Thanks, folks. There is even a bench just out of the frame and you can sit for as long as you like.

      Nicely composed.  Wonderful golden color.  Makes me want to go there.   (The water, especially at the top falls looks a bit grey to me…maybe try a dodge or some other way to brighten or whiten it a bit?)  That branch really does add an interest.  It is like a big arm leading us to the falls.

        Thanks, Frank. It is shaded up there, and the stream was thin making the rocks show through. Some of the leaves near that height are blown out, showing the difficulty in getting the whites bright. On a few images, I have used the adjustment brush to lighten the thin stream and should have here.

      There’s a nice little bench right there as well as some steps down to the water that make sitting easy. I’ll bet there is little foot traffic this time of year.
