Visit to White Oak Falls
A few days ago, I made my way back to White Oak Falls. During my earlier visit recent rains really had the waterfall flowing too hard. This day, the water was much better with a bit more definition. I had hope to get into my water shoes and get over the far side to check it out. But the water was still a bit deep to risk getting over there.
I do like White Oak Falls. Its certainly easy to get to from the parking area only requiring a little bit of rock scrambling to get to a short path along the left side of the stream. There are a lot of distractions around the water though. There is a patch of tall weeds right where the stream curves and it is not very attractive. So you have to try different compositions to handle them. I did have to erase some twigs and limbs scattered about in post processing. I try to avoid doing that but sometimes its that or ditch the photo.
In terms of colors around the Smokys, none as of October 3rd. Friends also told me that as of October 5th, there were no colors on the Blue Ridge Parkway around Mt. Mitchell and the Boone area. Shouldn't be much longer though.
Hope your autumn photography goes well for everyone. Later.
Very nice waterfall pic, Reid.
