- Description: Beautiful Jacks River in the Cohutta Wildrness, part of the Chattahoochee National Forest. It is a very wild a rugged area for the east and therefor relatively uncrowded. We found a fabulous campsite right beside the river. I was taking some water photos with slow exposures when I noticed that my husband had the tent lit up with his head land while he perused the map. I couldn't resist the glow of the tent next to the glow of the moonlit river.
- Gear: Canon 5D MKII
