I took the picture while hiking upstream in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I was in search for the rare Brook Trout while fly fishing. The sun was shining golden through the trees and I couldn't resist grabbing my camera out of my bag and capturing the moment. I used a circular polarizer to take the glare off most of the water. I also bumped my Fstop up to F/22 to get 10 seconds of exposure without blowing out any of the highlights.
