My first trip to these falls which are said to be the most photographed falls in WV. When visiting photo icons like this my normal reaction is - buy a postcard because it's all been done a zillion times already (especially true here since there's a wooden walkway that you cannot leave, so how many vantage points are there?) Little room for creativity. A postcard would show more water flow - big-time drought right now. Anyway, here it is - an "I was there" shot.
I shot this for possible use at some future date as an illustration for someone whose image of this falls I'd critiqued (not favorably) recently. The critiqued image was made in harsh sunlight with blown out falls and blocked shadows in the surrounding cliffs and with part of the falls blocked by tree branches (the vantage point was at the beginning of the walkway where the view was through tree branches; I simply walked another 100 feet & was fortunate to be there when I could wait for clouds to block the sun). If invited by that camera club, I'll bring this version along to illustrate my suggestions (at the time of the critique I didn't know where the image was made or the vantage points available - just that the location chosen wasn't "optimum").
