Tonight’s Image – A Wet Trailhead

Here’s a shot of the trailhead for a couple of the hikes in my new book, Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park, that I wrote about yesterday. Yes, this is a trailhead! Before you can start hiking the trails, you have to take a boat trip across Fontana Lake. This photo shows the marina very early on a foggy morning. Here’s another photo of the marina on Fontana Lake that I shot on the same morning.

    I am familiar with this area and like the shot.

    Did you consider shooting from a lower height about 1-2 feet off the ground, roughly parallel or slightly below the middle railing ?

    Look forward to meeting you at the waterfall workshop end of month.

    Thanks Richard!

    I shot a lot of comps that morning. I remember some were from a lower angle and farther out on the bridge. Haven’t processed those yet.
