Location: Upper Waterfall on Little Lost Cove Creek, near Linville Falls
A short but steep hike from the Blue Ridge Parkway leads to Little Lost Cove Creek and this beautiful, rarely seen sixty foot waterfall.
Camera: Canon T3i
Lens: Kit Lens 18-55
Focal Length: 18mm
Shutter: 1/2 sec
How I Got This Shot: When shooting lower flow waterfalls like this one, I like to use a tripod and a slower shutter speed with remote shutter release to capture the smooth flow of water. This is a two shot panorama, each taken with the same exposure but one focused short on the boulder at left and the other focused deeper into the picture on tree leaves. Blending the two exposures allows me to create a photo that is sharp throughout even though I used a large aperture.
