Elakala Falls #2
Shay's Run
Blackwater Falls State Park
West Virginia

I don’t know what it is about the state of West Virginia but every time I come home from there I just can’t believe what the state hands me to photograph and this time was no different. After two good days of shooting in and around Blackwater Falls State park, myself and good friends Jason Haley and Randy Sanger were greeted with several inches of snow on our 3rd day. Although the trees were covered in snow, underneath them it wasn’t so much. The steep hike down to Elakala #2 wasn’t too bad as I had put on some Traxx ice gripping straps on my shoes, even though I still had to be careful, and to me worth every foot of descent. This shot is one of my all time favorites.
