Another Favorite Waterfall

D20 2871 Another Favorite Waterfall

OK…on to my third day of shooting in West Virginia with the lovely Kat.  We were staying in a condo just outside of Davis, home of one of my favorite places in West Virginia, Blackwater Falls State Park.  Blackwater Falls is beautiful but too large and too exposed to multiple viewing platforms for shooting nudes.  It would be very hard to get down into the gorge below that waterfall to shoot anyway.  Especially since at this point my sprained ankle was still very painful.  But, there is another, better, waterfall in the park, Elakala Falls.  My friend Ralph told me about it some years ago and I immediately organized a shoot there with two models and produced a photo that is prominent in my portfolio.  That waterfall was only a few minutes drive from our condo, so, of course, I wanted to see what else I could do with it and Kat.

So we went there at dawn.  There’s a trail that runs right along the side of the stream with a bridge that crosses just above the waterfall.  That upper waterfall is only a stone’s throw from the park lodge, too…so it is very exposed to view by anyone who happened down that trail.  We took a look at the upper falls and the water flow was down and it just wasn’t as pretty as it had been when I shot it before.  So we decided not to shoot there.  But, as you’ve probably gathered, there is more than just the main, upper waterfall in this location.  A short hike on downstream brought us to a lower falls that was well shielded from the trail and much prettier than the upper falls, at least on this day.  So that’s where this photo was taken.

There’s a new sale for my calendars.  Go here to order them.  When you check out enter the code FLURRY and you will get a 25 percent discount on your order.  This new discount code is good until the day after Christmas.  So why not order some calendars to give to your friends for Christmas this year?  If you really want to give a bunch of calendars away you can get a 30 percent discount on orders of 10 or more calendars by using the code BLIZZARD.  That discount is also good until the day after Christmas.

f-eleven volume 3 would also make a great Christmas gift.  You can still use the discount code: PROMO to get 20 percent off your order until November 26.
