Location: Crabtree Falls, Milepost 339.5
Camera: Canon 7d Mark II
Focal Length: 18mm
Shutter: 1 second
Exposure: Aperture Priority
How I Got This Shot: I was on the bridge that crosses the river. I set my tripod up and wanted to capture the tree holding onto the rock with the river surrounding it. So I framed it to the waterfall, set the exposure, and then manually snapped the picture.
