Kennedy by LAlight Kennedy by LAlight
A new-to-me waterfall just 700 feet downstream from the often-visited Douglas Falls on the North Fork Blackwater River.

A big thanks to Addam *NWunseen for helping me find the little trail leading down the canyon to this fall. :hug:

I really love this.
I love how the leaves are basically like a trail leading you to the fall.
Perfect shot. :)

Very cool! Gotta love finding something new to photograph :camera: I really like the emerald glow of the foliage. Another thing I like about this is the way the leaf in the foreground points to the waterfall as does several others farther back in the frame. Well found and captured, Lee Anne :clap:

Incredible...such colors! Great shot, great processing. How cool--Addam in WV. I'm going to southern WV the first week in October. Hoping to catch some falls. This should be interesting.

Thanks Terri! Yes, Addam came to WV for a few days! :)
We actually hit several falls in southern WV, and most of the smaller ones are all dried up. :(

that "little" trail seemed so long on the way down for some reason! so glad that we could experience a new to you part of WV together..even happier you came out with this banger of a shot!! :wow: just an amazing composition! was definitely some crazy colors to work with along that creek but you displayed them perfectly here..and mighty fine work with the water, i know that wasnt an easy task! stunning capture, LA! :deviation:

so cool i can accurately say you did the colors perfectly :happybounce: thanks again for the amazing time, sweetie! :heart:

:lol: It sure did seem like a long way, didn't it?! Seemed a lot shorter on the way up, that's for sure. Was so happy to have you there with me so we could experience it for the first time together! And...very happy that you now know what the colors really look like! Like I said while we were standing there...this river is the hardest river I've ever had to process as far as the colors are concerned. It's like it just confuses the camera's white balance! Anyway...thanks for all the kind words, Addam. :blush:

:tighthug: thank you for making the trip out here! was my pleasure letting you drive me around... =D
