Sunrise near South River Falls

May 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

A week ago, I set out for South River Falls in Shenandoah National Park to shoot the sunrise and the falls. I think the sunrise turned out nicely.

The trail only took me to an overlook. I didn't see any way to get to the base of the falls. I always find that waterfalls look more magnificent if seen from the base of the falls rather than the top.

Fortunately, my hike to the falls wasn't wasted. South River itself is quite beautiful. I found this spot a little ways up from the falls. I love the moss growing on the rocks.

Unfortunately, a big storm came rushing in. I got this shot of the storm from Skyline Drive. I think the storm looks quite ominous.


 
The storm wasn't terrible, but I didn't know how long it would last, so I didn't end up going to Lewis Falls. I'll just have to make another trip out to Shenandoah.
