Amicalola trickle

We made  a trip up to Amicalola Falls yesterday after visiting Gibbs Gardens.  I guess I had forgotten that we had been under drought conditions most of the summer because I was surprised to see the falls with so little water.  This image is a spot near the middle of the main waterfall which I know would be submerged under normal conditions.

You can see from this view, that the flow is pretty weak but still beautiful to see.  It is interesting to visit places like this on days when not many people are around.

Yesterday’s cool and rainy weather kept most of the people who would be out on the weekend indoors.  That would be great news for photographers – if there was just a bit more light and you didn’t have to worry about the camera getting wet.

Oh well, it was a nice day out with my wife anyway.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
