On an overcast in the Great Smoky Mountains we hiked to Abrams Falls off of Cade’s Cove (which is a beautiful if not frustratingly slow trip because of the one way traffic). It was a nice hike and one that most people should be able to do but we had to hustle because it took us much longer to get there than we had anticipated due to the traffic.
Eventually we did make it out there and we spoke with a few locals who said we picked the wrong weekend if we were hoping for no crowds. Apparently as the fall season comes to the Smokies so too do the tourists.

For this shot I got down low and angled up towards Abrams Falls. The ‘main falls’ were up above this but they were swarmed with other people so I tried to focus on the fallen, colorful leaves on the rocks in the foreground and catch the smaller falls in the background. I like the way the colors ultimately turned out.
