Photo Story: A Different Kind of Rock

Posted By Jason Barnette on November 01, 2017

I'm always on the lookout for something different. A different angle to shoot a photo or a different position to capture a waterfall. Maybe some different colors during sunset.

But this one time while exploring the Deep Creek area at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park I found a different kind of rock. I was standing ankle deep in semi-cold mountain water capturing photos of Tom's Branch Falls when I noticed this one orange rock standing out from all the rest.

I was fascinated by this different rock. I knew I had to capture a photo. But standing in the middle of a creek surrounded by tubers didn't make it very easy. I ended up getting on my knees, drenching my shorts, and hunching over my camera attached to the tripod just inches above the water to get this photo.

I've loved it ever since. If you love it as much as I do you can purchase a copy to hang in your own home or office, or maybe give it as a gift to someone who would appreciate a different kind of rock.
