Bottom of Laurel Falls

Here’s a shot of Laurel Falls from the very bottom of the falls. One thing about this popular waterfall in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is that the trail leads you to the upper-middle portion of the falls. If you look close in this image you can see the wooden guard rails of the bridge that goes over the falls. There is a bench up there as well and a large area for people to stop and take photos and just view the area.

To get an idea of how big this waterfall is from top to bottom, check out this other shot I called “Setting Up the Shot“. That photo was taken on the trail that crosses the waterfall.

happy wheels

About the Author

My first experience with a SLR camera was many years ago during high school, taking black and white film photos and processing them in the school's darkroom. It was at that time that I fell in love with photography and post-processing. Not being able to afford the film needed to continue learning photography and not having my own processing tools, I put down the camera. Many years later, I picked up a DSLR and started using Adobe Lightroom and fell back in love with photography. I'm also found on Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram
