Running Dry by LAlight Running Dry by LAlight
It was a beautiful day to shoot in the New River Gorge!

Lack of rain means that the waterfalls are again drying up at the end of summer. But that didn't stop us from taking the opportunity to shoot from multiple angles that would otherwise have been harder to get to...in fact, we shot until we ran out of light. :)

Ooh, love the contrast of the colours, and the rich green of the woods. The composition and quality is great too. The only thing that disturbs me is the bits of leaves on the right side of the falls. I wouldn't have minded much if the leaves were the same colour, but the weird array scattered like that reminded me of the trash that people throw out carelessly sometimes. Other than that, I really like this shot. Great work, as usual! :)

Interesting point about the leaves...didn't see it like that myself, but I do understand what you're saying! I thought about moving them, but thought that they helped hold the viewer's attention there, so I left them. Thanks for the input! :)

Not bad. This week and next will be sucky. Time to close up shop. :(
But Ingrid, my partner, insists that Tuesday we are just taking the day
and going for a drive or something.

:faint: such a unique perspective..just love it! also makes the teeny fall look pretty good size :) beautiful composition and exposure, sweetie..so glad we could explore and maneuver around this area like we did :D

:blushes: I'm just glad you started walking down the creek and found this one! I mean, I'd been here before, but thought you had to approach it from the road. Guarantee that if I'd have come at it from the road side, I wouldn't have ventured to the opposite side and top of the fall like I did. So very appreciative of your scouting skills! =D
Thanks sweetie! :hug:

:| This is why I need you to help scout...because I have no sense of direction! :lol: You've been hiking with me enough to know that...remember, after we came down from Lake Laura, I thought we came out at a different spot? Didn't even remember hiking in through the trail head! Definitely always an adventure with me. Thanks for putting up with me! :huggle:

Beautiful angle. Like a veil. I love the juxtaposition of hard and soft, light and dark in your waterfalls. Perfect exposure. Dang, girl, you're good!

Thank you so much! More like driving to this place, unfortunately. Just park along the side of the road, hop out, and scramble down the creek bank. ;)

I want to visit then, by motor car. We have routes like that here, one being near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, known as the Roaring Fork Motor Trail. :D
