Kayaker at Baby Falls, Tellico River, Tennessee. June 18, 2010.
This is my post for Watery Wednesday. To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.
Last Friday I decided that Betsy needed to get out of the house for a while, so we took a drive to the Tellico River, another of our favorite spots here in Tennessee. There are some waterfalls that can be seen from the road, so I felt Betsy would not have to do much walking.
One of those roadside waterfalls is Baby Falls, a pretty little 15-foot drop in the Tellico River. There were swimmers enjoying the plunge pool, but what caught our attention was a group of kayakers shooting the falls.
By the time I got into position to take pictures there was only one person left to shoot the falls. I got this series of shots as he went over the brink.
I didn’t have time to change the settings on my camera so I didn’t get a shot of the kayak at the base of the falls, but the kayaker was successful in shooting the falls, he landed upright and paddled across the plunge pool before continuing downstream.
I must admit that it looked very exciting, but I think I’ll continue to enjoy waterfalls while standing on solid ground!
