December Waterfalls - 1/3
Lens: DA 15, DA 21, DA 35 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: East Tennessee ISO: 50 
Posted By: mole, 12-23-2014, 03:02 PM

Abundant rains lately have made for some full-flowing waterfalls here in Tennessee lately. Here are some scenes from nearby Laurel Run Park in Hawkins County TN. First a view of the stream itself - Laurel Run...





It's an easy, but muddy walk to the main falls.





But a somewhat more "interesting" walk up a side branch called Kiner Creek to the other falls. Here are two of the smaller falls along Kiner Creek.







And the main falls along Kiner Creek - at dry seasons just a trickle, but certainly worth a visit when wet...





Hope you enjoyed the soggy visit, and looking forward to your comments and suggestions.

First and last are the strongest, IMO.

The stick in the bottom left kills image #2, there's too much dead space in #3, and the OOF leaves in #4 are distracting.

Amazing what a bit of rain will do to a waterfall. It is pouring here so I am not sure I needed more water . Shutter speed was spot on Ranger. We are wracking our brains to try and figure out if we have been to Laurel Falls. Getting old, don't remember.

Powasky - Thanks for your very specific and helpful critique!

Jac - Thanks so much!

Tom - It's an easy hike, as long as you don't mind a bit of mud - only about a mile from the parking area to the main falls. Just off Goshen Valley Road in McPheeter's Bend.

Susan - Names can be so confusing! The photos posted above are from Laurel Run Falls. There's also a Laurel Falls in the Smoky Mountains, and a Laurel Falls (also called Laurel Fork Falls) in the Dennis Cove wilderness of Cherokee National Forest (near Hampton TN).
Here's a snapshot of Laurel Falls in the Smokies:



And two snapshots of Laurel Falls in Cherokee National Forest:






Hope that helps you remember which one(s) you've visited!
