North Fork Blackwater River by LAlight North Fork Blackwater River by LAlight
Taken just above Douglas Falls in Thomas, WV. The orange on the rocks is due to iron and acid drainage into the river from the coal mines upstream.

oh wow! nice photo, but it's terrible how coal companies don't clean this stuff up... =/
I'm in a Health in Appalachia course here at Berea College, and we are doing a health impact assessment on the effects coal has on the human health. The part I've had to research is mainly well water problems. We have to do posters on our topics and I was wondering if it would be alright if I used this photo...I would give full credit! It's only going to be used for the purpose of educating people about this topic. =]

Nice capture.
I really like the different planes and the flow of water that leads your eyes through all of them, and the warm tones give a feeling of serenity.

The only thing that kind of breaks this mood is the green patch above, but that's just my take on it :)

You know, that was actually one of the things I considered doing when processing this photo. I also have a few shots of it without the green. Having heard your opinion, I may post one at some point. I really appreciate your feedback, and thanks for stopping by!

That's a beautiful shot! Very nice composition!

My father's family is from around Dola, near Lumberport. The streams looked like that when I was a kid but are much better now.
