All weekend during a trip to West Virginia's New River Gorge in October 2011 we fought difficult lighting conditions, but imagine my surprise when on our way to the ghost town of Thurmond that the morning light had yet to hit the falls on Dunloup Creek. I had visited this falls in May of 2009 with friends Jason Haley and Randy Sanger and sadly I walked away with some poor photographic representations. Back then, Jason and I were on our way home from a trip across the entire length of the Blue Ridge Parkway and had contacted Randy prior to the trip knowing we'd be passing by the New River Gorge. Jason and I were only in the area for a few hours as Randy gave us the expedited tour, but I knew by the little bit I saw I wanted to come back. So here I was again, with Jason and Randy, good friend Bryan Janosick and new friends Todd Williams and Sarah Hampton taking in the beauty the New River Gorge has to offer. Everybody and their aunt may have a photograph of this gorgeous falls, but at least now I have a good one.
