Default West Virginia Part 2: Waterfalls

This is what my daughter and I really went to photograph in the New River Gorge area of WV. Once again the difused natural lighting really lit up the Autumn colors.

K20D + DA*16-50 mm; long exposures tripod mounted with 2 sec mirror up function.

Dunlop Creek Falls. I photographed this last year, but it was not nearly as colorful.


An alternate perspective of the same falls...can't figure which one I like better.


A cascade over Wolf Creek


Sandstone Falls...a popular place to fish, I gather.



Another narrow but tall cascade which I do not know to identify by name.


And finally my daughter Kristen(14) with the K10D learning the finer points of composition. . . we had a blast being camera nerds hiking with our tripod mounted cameras over our shoulders

Great work on these - wonderful capture of the colors and the mood, great composition too. Of course the last is the most beautiful!

Beautiful falls and excellent photography! You captured them so well. Fine color, framing and exposure.

What a treat it is to have a daughter with a similar interest. I speak from experience.

Lou: It is a lot of fun doing photo treks with my daughter...this is our second. In addition to the photography, it is good father daughter bonding time and you can attest to as well.

An interesting annecdote if you'll indulge me: It was a bit rainy and overcast on one of the days which iniitially dissapointed us. But not being just fair weather photographers, we spent the day taking advantage of the lighting and the lack of shadows to capture the Fall colors. By the way, I used a camera sleeve from Ritz that worked very well in keeping rain/mist off the gear.

Towards the end of the day, at one point the sun broke thorough...and both of us almost in unison cried out..."No...no...go away...your ruining our light with shadows"! Photo-nerds...go figure!!!
