Description

Elakala Falls is located within Blackwater Falls State Park just outside of Davis, West Virginia. Aside from Blackwater Falls which is the main attraction, Elakala Falls is a very popular choice for photographers and is easy to access from the trails. Elakala Falls is a series of four waterfalls which make up Shays Run as it descends into the bottom of the canyon and spills into the Blackwater River. This image is the first waterfall and was taken from the far left corner for a different perspective. There is often times the opportunity to capture unique swirling patterns in the water assuming the flow is not hard enough to bypass the collection pools. I noticed a swirling motion at the bottom of the falls so I exposed the image long enough to capture this effect. ISO 100, f16, 6 sec
