Thanks. Yes I ran it through topaz adjust to give it some pop. Too much pp? Still trying to figure out a happy medium.

Nice shot. That spot is a good one to get the falls from after Irene knocked the tree down that was there. Looks to be from about the same spot as this shot

when the tree was still there, from this thread.

Great photo Kyle! The only change possibly would be that the waterfall and sky are slightly violet. Could be pp or some of my photos change when uploaded depending on the conversion to jpg. But still great. This is one of my favorite waterfalls.

Made a trip back here. The water was low but still a great place.

Great shot! I love the texture of the rocks there.

Nice shot. The water was a beautiful this year, so clear that it glowed green, as you can see in Des219's latest photo. We stopped here this year but I didn't take any photos, just too lazy I guess.

Thanks guys. This place is one of my favorites. Yeah the rock formations, the water color and purity, combined with the round rocks and evergreens make for a picturesque location.

LGD you have taken so many pictures it isn't a surprise that you skip sometimes.

Yeah, I just wasn't feeling it, and if the feeling's not there, why force it? Plus the light was kind of harsh the day we were there.

Here are a few shots of people having late August fun. I'm not sure how smart it is, drinking Natty Ice and jumping off slippery rock cliffs, but it does look fun and was fun to watch.

Nice. Sometimes you wonder about jumping in there, but I've done it, so.... but not as bad as the one guy I saw who jumped from the viewing area to the upper right in your last picture. You might have been standing there in the second picture, looks about right.
