Spent a weekend in the Great Smoky Mountains and was on a quest for a shot of flowing water over the rocks. I wanted something abstract and found a river where I could get close to what I had in mind. I knew I wanted to convert into black & white when I shot it, so I composed in one of the heavier flow areas to ensure I'd have plenty of great bright white texture.
Shot with Nikon D800 + 24-70 f/2.8. Edited with Photoshop CS6 and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. Hand held using the Joe McNally shoulder pin technique.
