Roaring Fork River, GSMNP, Tennessee.
With so many good stops along the Roaring Fork Motor Nature trail you just can't go wrong. I look for locations along the river that have excellent moss covered boulders and are free of messy fallen tree's and limbs in the river. Shooting this location after and or during a light rain will bring the colors to life.
When working the stream please do not step on the moss covered boulders. Frequent trampling will destroy the moss and it takes many years to heal. Use fishing waders or go into the river with shorts and river sandals for the best views that literally make it appear that the viewer is standing in the stream. Photo © copyright by Joseph Rossbach.
