Coyne at Small Mouth Falls

Small Mouth Falls is located on a fork of the Guadalupe River in Ingram, Texas at By The River RV Park & Campground. 

I wanted to get some photos of the falls using a slow shutter speed (which makes the water look silky) but that little tree was in my way and obstructing my otherwise perfect view. Coyne volunteered to climb down the bank of the river and see if he could pull the tree up. But, it's roots were firmly planted in the rock and the tree wouldn't budge!

Since I'm too shaky to handhold and I didn't have my tripod I decided to forgo the slow shutter speed. I settled on the following:
ISO 100

The late afternoon light was really nice and I especially like how Coyne is backlit.
