14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Long exposure waterfall at Goforth Creek, Benton, Tennessee

The second weekend after returning to school, I felt the need to take a small hike up Goforth Creek and try some new things with how I captured images. My friends were rushing me to hurry up, and I kept saying, "One more shot, give me a second," and the images just kept getting better and better as I toyed around with the exposure. Ultimately, I ended up with this shot, and was amazed by the beauty of something so simple.
