New image “Douglas Falls” added to the Print Portfolio from last weeks photo trip to West Virginia.

Douglas Falls on the North Fork of the Blackwater River, Monongahela National Forest, West Virginia.

The red in the rocks is due to iron ore that has leaked from mine wells up stream. It is a reminder of the destruction and enviromental decay that took place (and continues to) in the Appalachian Mountains since the begining of the Industrial Revolution.

    Nice image. It reminds me of the red earth and rocks here in central Australia.
