Default Bailey Falls

These are from a few months ago, but only now finding time for a bit of posting…

Took a quick hike over in the Bald Mountain area of Greene County TN recently in an area called Dry Creek. Not sure why it's called "dry" creek - usually some pretty good flow…

There are several excellent hiking trails that branch off - including the Phillips Hollow and Bullen Hollow trails - but most folks choose the trail up to Margarette Falls.

Mole, these are gorgeous. Did you use a neutral density filter on these?

Robert - It's a gorgeous place - glad you enjoyed the snapshots. Did not use an ND, used a polarizer. And, as usual, waited for a dark overcast day...
