Good Morning!Have a lot of things going tomorrow, so I'm pulling the usual "weekend" photo of the day ahead by a day.As I had mentioned over the break, we were able to get out and explore, or at least take "the long way" over our holidays, and this image is the fruit from that effort. Today's image is of Moat's Falls, a highlight on the Arden section of the Tygart river, near Philippi, WV. We headed the back way to family gatherings on Christmas Eve, as we had heard from them that the rains over the holiday had brought the river up. We were fortunate to hit the sweet spot where the muddy water had cleared out, but the falls were still running river wide. The approach was definitely a bit adventurous - it was basically dark, all of the rocks and bank were slick and wet, and any fall would have been a very bad time in the river. We showed up to Christmas Eve dinner with dirty knees and seats on our pants from cautiously scooting out on the rock, and taking this shot from a kneel. Haha!Hope everyone has a great weekend, and probably back to "Regular" schedule next week!Dusk at Moats Falls - West Virginia(C)2015 Samuel Taylor Photography, All Rights ReservedLike What You See?

Keeneys Creek in Fayette County, West Virginia is one of my favorite places to visit. There is so much pretty moss all along the creek.www.imagesbyleianegibson.smugmug.com

Hello, Friends told me I should post this picture here, I hope it's OK. I took this January 3rd, 2016 in Floyd Co. Va off of Bethlehem Church Rd. Around 5:30pm. My Cousin is expecting her fist Child, and she ask me if I would take some pictures of her Favorite things, Her Horse, her Baby Bump and her Man. She loved this picture best of all, hope you all enjoy as well

Upper Spivey Falls at Night!!I went waterfalling late last night to try and capture the sky with some stars over the falls and I had an extra bonus of some snow on the mountain and rocks. It was very slick going down the step bank and rocks to get to thease falls but I think the effort was well worth it. These were shot on the M mode, for 30 sec, at 2.8 ap, 11mm and 5000 ISO and I light painted the falls with a flashlight during the exposure time. I want to thank Percy Sheely, Larry Sossamon and Rick Small for their help on getting me headed in the right direction on how to set up the camera and for shooting night shots.Photo shot at Upper Spivey Falls off of Spivey Mountain in Erwin, Tennessee.Check out our photo page https://www.facebook.com/JandGPhotosLikes, comments and shares are welcomed, but please do not alter the photo (crop the border and our copyright) and use it as your own.J & G Photos

Elk were reintroduced to southeast Kentucky several years ago, and they have multiplied. It isn't unusual to round a bend and find a herd standing in the middle of the road. These stragglers blocked the road for several minutes before deciding to follow the others up the mountain.

Water. It is a fleeting substance, it flows through our fingers, it evaporates, it boils away. Yet what we think of solid, rocks, trees, the earth, they all fall victim to the power of water. (Falling Water Cascades near Peaks of Otter on the Parkway)
