The River Monster

Lower Swallow Falls

Youghiogheny River

Swallow Falls State Park




Just a quick post and run from my weekend trip to West Virginia. Since we were only about 20 miles from Swallow Falls State Park, good friends Jason Haley, Randy Sanger and myself decided to head up there for a little bit. Little did we realize we were going to see the largest swirl we'd ever seen. Have a great Waterfall Wednesday!


I'm sorry if you can't comment folks, I'm not sure what has happened here, it's some kooky Flickr glitch. As always, if you can, thank you and also thank you everyone for the favorites! It is much appreciated!

    Thank you Jim! Hope to see you too!

    Thanks Tom!

    Thank you Randy! Yeah, this was a awesome trip, it's going to be hard to top it! If it hadn't been for the Swirl Monster we'd all been a bit disappointed in my opinion, and we would have had to go back to Muddy Creek and knock some youngsters in the water.

    Thanks Joe!

    Thanks Hop!

    Thank you Ulrich!

    Woot! I mean wow. We visited this park once and I came away with some great shots of Muddy Falls, definitely one of my favorites of all time. This falls was in full sun and I got nothing worth posting, even for a "memory shot". You nailed the lighting and contrast here. Outstanding stuff Bill!
