The beautiful cascades of West Virginia, taken August 2010. This is near where the Gauley and the New River come together, and is about six miles from Hawks Nest.
I photographed a wedding in Charleston, WV, and going to this waterfall was a short but wonderful diversion from the chaos. www.elevenshadows.com/travels/westvirginia2010/ are the photos from my last West Virginia trip, which includes photos of the Trans-Allegheny Asylum for the Insane and the wedding, among other things.
This photo was especially challenging due to my Gorillapod tripod sliding on slippery rocks and a kid splashing water in my face, but thankfully, gratefully, it came out well!
I should add that initially, the light was a bit bright for what I wanted, so I used a circular polarizer to stop down the camera a bit to get a longer exposure. 1.6 second exposure, Nikon D90.
