Description

Blackwater Falls is the main attraction within Blackwater Falls State Park located just outside of Davis, West Virginia and is aptly named for its tannins-darkened appearance. There is boardwalk structure that allows visitors to descend down the left-hand side for different viewing opportunities. The best time to view the Falls is in autumn when the surrounding area turns color and provides for a beautiful fall landscape opportunity. This image was taken in October 2015 and fortunately the area had received a large amount of rain in the days preceding my visit. I have visited the falls previously and the water flow can slow down to a mere trickle barely covering the falls. I kept the exposure as short as possible due to the low breeze that was moving the surrounding trees. Given the full volume of water that was flowing over the falls, the exposure time did not need to be long to capture the smooth effect I was looking for. ISO 100, f22, 0.3 sec
