Conasauga Falls

This afternoon, I drove out to a new waterfall. I had been on a hike last week with a Jerry Denham and during the hike there was talk of Conasauga Falls. I had never been, but I knew it was relatively close. Doing a quick search on the internet, I had read some brief summaries of the trial and everyone that talked about it, mentioned that it was an easy to moderate hike.

Well, I got there and as I was hiking, I was thinking to myself that this was quite an easy hike. After a few minutes, I started to think about it, it was 98 degrees outside and this was too easy. Then it dawned on me, hiking down a small incline is easy, hiking back up the same incline, not so much. I didn’t realize it, but I should have thought about it, the entire trail was downhill.

Hiking down took about 15 minutes; hiking back, 30 minutes. I had to stop a few times to catch my breath. But in the end it was worth it, I ended up getting some great shots of another waterfall.

One thing about a waterfall…, no matter when you go, or how many times you’ve been, it will always look different.

happy wheels

About the Author

My first experience with a SLR camera was many years ago during high school, taking black and white film photos and processing them in the school's darkroom. It was at that time that I fell in love with photography and post-processing. Not being able to afford the film needed to continue learning photography and not having my own processing tools, I put down the camera. Many years later, I picked up a DSLR and started using Adobe Lightroom and fell back in love with photography. I'm also found on Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram
