The Elakala waterfalls are a well-known location for photography in West Virginia. The waterfall includes three falls. This one is the second one and is less photographed because is not easy to reach. It requires going down along a steep trail not well traced.
For this image, I also cross the creek and this can be complicated because of the risk of slipping on the rocks covered with moss. I wanted to provide the observer with the ability to see the flow of water and have tried a few exposure times.
In the end, the 30 seconds exposure was the best compromise. I used a 6-stop ND filter and a circular polarizer to remove any unwanted reflection.
