Minnehaha Falls and No Disappointment

What to say about this photo and the one below? A neutral density filter—and the desire to make the water milky white! I'm learning and my new goal is to figure out how to use this new filter, which I have tried here. For most of my life, I have used a camera to record [...]

Out and About: Isaqueena Falls and Stumphouse Tunnel

This past Sunday was a perfect day for a short trip to Isaqueena Falls in nearby South Carolina. I've been here several times, and it's always a fun place to walk and relax, especially on a warm January day!

Enjoyed spending time with Sandy Campbell, who is with the Army Corps of Engineers and her associate along with Kelly Vickers. I sat in awe and amazement as I listened to them talk about the Cherokee Indians that once lived along the Tugaloo River. They also talked about Indian artifacts along the river. There was [...]
