still have plenty of pics to share from my wonderful and beautiful time in West Virginia.
once i laid my eyes up on this fall i spotted the location i wanted to capture it from..of course that location was probably the hardest spot in this area to get to! after descending a good thirty feet below the fall..i climbed/crawled back up the wet mossy rocks to this view. in setting up my tripod i realized the small pool in front of me was not a pool..but a void under the rock i was standing on..meaning underneath me was a good 20 foot drop to massive boulders. needless to say, the experience was definitely worth the muddy, smelly climb. after i got my shot..stood for a few minutes to bask in the falls beauty and mist..and figure out how to get back up above!

spectacular capture by [link] showing the view of this fall from the right..

and my view from across the creek..


please dont use my images in any way without my permission..thank you :)

:giggle: I guess that was a pretty silly question...but I couldn't be sure, since this was the third fall and all...just had to ask! Not sure if I should be scared or not that we are the only two who saw the three's... :crazy:
