Elakala #2, Shays Run, Blackwater Falls State Park, West Virginia

Swirly Falls

I spent a long 3 day weekend camping and hiking with my son Phoenix in the Mountains of West Virginia and western Maryland. On Sunday, we hiked and scrambled down to Elakala Falls and Second Falls of Shays Run. After climbing around on the rocks and waiting in the plunge pool below the falls, I took a chance to work a few comps of the scene. For this shot I was in the water with Phoenix. He was kind enough to hold the shutter release and trip the shot when i told him I was ready. Great kid!!

    Gorgeous shot! This is one of the prettiest ones you’ve posted from this area. Looks like you had a nice amount of water there. Does Phoenix have a D90 yet? 🙂

    Hi Joe! Beautiful image! Maybe someday soon Phoenix will be helping out on workshops. Enjoy!

  3. Interesting, we have some places very similar here in Brazil, but hey are in rain forest.
