Black Watercolors

Blackwater Falls

Blackwater Falls State Park

Davis, West Virginia


The last time I was here I didn’t visit the main attraction of the area, Blackwater Falls and the time before that I was only here for a few minutes, so since Jason hadn’t seen the falls from the traditional perspectives I suggested we go have a look and that’s what Randy, Jason and I did. One of the cooler things about the falls is there’s plenty of isolation opportunities on the 62 foot tall beauty. Here’s one of the many I shot during our visit.

    OOooo nice. very dramatic. and of course, perfect execution.
  • NicerThanLion 3y

    Awesome shot!
  • A-scape 3y

    Amazing the detail in the rock, and great exposure.
  • Kirk 3y

    I don't know how you could be any better, but every incredible shot seems to surpass the previous one. This is, frankly, one of the most beautiful shots I have ever seen. Viewed in light box, it can't be surpassed.
