Elakala #2
Shay's Run
Blackwater Falls State Park
West Virginia

What a great feeling it was to revisit Elakala #2 returned to it's old glory in December! Located in West Virginia's Blackwater Falls State Park this is one of my all time favorite waterfalls (#2, #3 one or the other). If it looks cold, well it was more than cold, pretty brutal actually, but interestingly it was several degrees warmer here than it was up by the park lodge. Although beautiful, after spending nearly 4 hrs here, myself and the good friends the static brothers were faced with several challenges, with 6 of us descending on #2 it was a bit crowded as we waited turns to shoot the falls without disturbing the snow in the foreground, eventually we spread out between #3 and #1 which helped with the crowding. But then came the fighting with the accessories as tripod legs got frozen closed or open and batteries were getting zapped by the cold. The final challenge was to ourselves as the cold slowly penetrated our layers of cloths, freezing limbs toes and fingers as well as freezing up joints. It was no matter though, we had a great time and the reward was warming up at the lodge and enjoying a wonderful late lunch, some flipping great brisket I will add!

Douglas Falls
North Fork Blackwater River
Thomas, West Virginia

This is my all time favorite waterfall, even if it is changing. The once bright red/orange color that once covered the rocks is dulling, but it doesn't take from the beauty of this gorgeous place. Located on the North Fork of the Blackwater River just outside Thomas, West Virginia, the towering waterfall smashes down into a boulder strewn gorge followed by numerous smaller waterfalls and cascades. Just to stand in the presence of this powerful drop of water you get a true feeling of awe. I spent quite some time here just soaking it all in. Not taking photographs. Just listening and seeing and feeling the waterfall that is called Douglas.

Big Run Falls #1
Big Run
Monongahela National Forest
West Virginia

After spending a snowy, blustery morning of horizontal snow and 40 mph winds in 10 degree weather on top of Dolly Sods in West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest we decided to warm up and visit Big Run 40 miles to the west where there was little wind and it was 15 degrees. Also located in "The Mon", it takes a bit of precipitation to get this stream going and luckily we showed up in some awesome conditions, as it was still snowing and the water was flowing! This is the 3rd time I'd visited this waterfall and the first time there wasn't that much water on it, the second time I don't recall there being any at all and it was a sunny day, so to catch as I did last week with The Static Brothers, I was joyous to say the least! This is the first of 3 waterfalls in a short distance as the waterway makes it's journey to the North Fork of the Blackwater River. This being the first at about 10 or so feet tall, I haven't ever really paid any attention to the second falls but I've stood a top the third and it's a pretty good sized one, the only problem with that one it requires a bunch of rain to make it look good. Hopefully some day I'll be there in those conditions so I can take that one in. For now though, I'll be satisfied with the first in all it's glory!

Blackwater Falls
Blackwater River
Blackwater Falls State Park
Davis, West Virginia

This past weekend I got to spend some quality time with my good friends The Static Brothers! Having pushed back our annual fall trip to early December we decided to spend our time around Blackwater Falls State Park and Dolly Sods in the northern section of West Virginia. I don't think we could have asked for better conditions (OK, it could have been a little warmer). After a lovely 1st day, snow moved in for the next 3 days and temps never got above 20 degrees making for beautiful ice formations and snow covered trees. After a wonderful lunch at the State Park Lodge we decided to hit the traditional overlooks of Blackwater Falls. We arrived to awe inspiring scenes greeting us! Talk about gorgeous! Wow!

Everybody and their aunt has a photograph of the Glade Creek Grist Mill in West Virginia’s Babcock State Park, but being that I’ve shot here once and that was way back in 2009, I was really wanting to spend some time with this beautiful scenic structure on a recent visit to West Virginia. We had spent the morning shooting at Mill Creek and eventually harsh sunlight ran us off. We were a bit surprised because our weather app was saying there was an 85% cloud cover and there was barely a cloud in the sky. After some discussion we decided to head over to Babcock to see if there was better conditions. As soon as we topped out on US 60 it was quite apparent we were sitting under the only hole in the cloud shelf and as we made our way to the park we found ourselves back under a blanket of even light.

Constructed in 1976 of pieces of 3 mills which were located across the state of West Virginia, the Glade Creek Grist Mill it is fully operational and is a recreation of Cooper Mill which stood nearby many, many years ago. For those of you who don’t know about the popularity of this place, in the fall, a line of photographers 5 deep will line up along the road downstream from the mill to capture their own iconic image of it. On this day we visited on a Friday and there weren’t many folks around, which is nice. From my understanding weekends can be ridiculous and if you’re a photographer wanting get some shots without any people in it, it can be quite the challenge. Lucky for us it was Friday and only a handful of folks had been through over the couple hours we spent here.
