Watery Wednesday #61: The Distant View


Hurricane Falls, Tallulah Gorge State Park, Georgia. October 14, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

Last week I posted a couple of pictures of Hurricane Falls in Tallulah Gorge State Park, Georgia.  Those pictures (which are HERE) were taken from the base of the falls at the bottom of the gorge,  To get those pictures I had to go down (and back up) 590 steps.

After getting back up to the rim of the gorge Betsy and I hiked along the South Rim Trail.  We found an overlook that looked down on Hurricane Falls, which is where the above picture was taken.

I’m guessing we’ll go back to Tallulah Gorge since we like it so much.  Will I hike down to the base of Hurricane Falls again?  Probably.  But I will definitely stop at this South Rim Trail overlook to view the falls from this vantage point.  Closer isn’t always better!

    Always love your pics of waterfalls.

    It’s always hard to decide which is the best view of the falls. And you’re right…sometimes you make a very difficult hike only to find you had already taken the best pictures.

    When it comes to waterfalls, I imagine that a distant shot is often prettier. You guys manage to get plenty of both and lots of exercise, too!

    Love that shot. You have so many waterfalls down your way. We have lots too but many are not accessible unless you are a mountain goat. MB

    My 214 steps at Blackwater a couple of weeks ago don’t seem quite as hard at the moment. 🙂
    I really need practice taking shots of falling water – this is gorgeous. So glad I enlarged it.

    wonderful softness in how you shot these cascading falls. Lovely
