It's not everyday one gets to see a once in a lifetime event, but on this particular day at Campbell Falls at Camp Creek State Park in Southern West Virginia myself and some good friends were treated to a spectacular scene. We had spent quite some time shooting the falls in the late afternoon light and boy, oh boy was I getting hungry. I seriously wanted to leave. But my good friends Randy Sanger and Todd Williams insisted we stay as the direct sunlight would be off the falls in a short time. Reluctantly, I chose not to push the issue further and shoot the falls in the impending shade. What a decision that turned out to be, as the sun set behind the mountain and shaded the splashpool and shortly there after the waterfall, an amazing array of color exploded on the water as the sun lit up the orange colored trees over the falls creating a vibrant reflection! Combine that with swirling leaves and foam it was truly a sight to see! Good think I let my friends win out over hunger!
