I photographed this small waterfall along the side of a gravel road in the Tremont section of the Smoky Mountains, in Tennessee. See more.
Note: If traveling on 1-75, I’d recommend access to the falls via US Highway 64, rather than Benton Springs Road – which is a shorter distance, though better suited for four-wheel drive vehicles, or mules.
From US Highway 64, driving seven miles north on Oswald Road affords visitors the opportunity to enjoy several separate scenic overlooks:
There’s a $3 admission to the park, payable at various posted areas; seal your money in the provided envelope, remove the adjoining stub to hang from your vehicle-mirror, and deposit funds in the designated repository.
The 1.5 mile trail to Benton Falls is an easy hike through the forest along a generally flat surface of mostly hard-packed sand, and passes by McCamy Lake:
The two photographs below appear similar. However, the first example uses burst shooting, stacking 20 photographs onto one another, while the second image is a single shot with a longer exposure. This difference affects how the water is presented:
a steep descent of water from a height; a cascade.
Enjoy my photography on a print in your home, at the office, in a lobby or cafeteria setting. Many print types are available – framed, canvas, art, metal, wood and acrylic. Other items, also. Visit my gallery for more. Thanks!
