A paradise of more than 20,000 acres sprawled across the eastern top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau, Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of the most scenic and spectacular outdoor recreation areas in America. Laced with cascades, gorges, waterfalls, streams, and lush stands of virgin hardwood timber, the park beckons those who enjoy nature at her finest. While Fall Creek Falls, at 256 feet, is the highest waterfall in the eastern United States, other waterfalls in the park are Piney and Cane Creek Falls and Cane Creek Cascades.

I captured this single long exposure shot while I was on a state park adventure on 06/19/2015. Me and my fiance had been hiking most of the day, so we decided to take a break in this spot. I sat and enjoyed the view, reminiscing about life and my future. I noticed that there was some foam floating around in the water. At that point, it was almost sunset, so I set up my camera and tripod and captured some long exposures of this scene, knowing the effect it would give. One thing that I didnt notice at first was the face in the water. In fact, the face is sort of reminiscent of E.T. off of one of my favorite classics. When things like this happen, it brings me peace of mind that photography is my destiny.
