Lower Swallow Falls, Maryland. A short hike through Swallow Falls State Park led us to this big monster in the middle of the Youghiogheny River, just after Lower Swallow Falls in Garrett County, MD.

That's a really good shot. I was at Swallow Falls last Sept and it is a beautiful place. No big swirl visible then, or I failed to see it. Still, there are some very nice scenes there, even on a rainy day.

One of the guys we go shooting with down in WV, Randall Sanger (http://www.flickr.com/​photos/chasingwaterfal​ls/ (external link)), will sometimes toss a couple of leaves into a pool beneath a waterfall to make it a little more interesting. This was a huge mass of foam, though.. biggest I'd ever seen.
