Cumberland River, Ky.

We have been camped in the Cumberland Falls State Park in Kentucky for a few days.  It is July and the temperatures and humidity are high but that hasn't stopped us from doing our daily hiking.  We have been trying to make our hikes in the mornings or late afternoons to deal with the sticky weather.  We use the mid day hours to scout out possible locations to photograph in when the light is better.  We visited this area in the during the day and knew this would be a good location to return to.  This image was taken at dusk along the Cumberland River and was a fairly long exposure in the dim light.  I rarely ever set my ISO higher than 100 when photographing and enjoy the slow pace of using a tripod and making long exposures.  The mood of this location was very still and quiet as we walked around the rivers edge exploring the area.  The soft glow of light on the rocks and water reflects the mood of the place that evening.
