In the Bankhead National Forest in Alabama, there is a beautiful waterfall on Caney Creek. I hiked down to the falls today with some friends and took my first shot with the 20D that I recently purchased. This is my presentation of the falls.

C&C welcome!

Great first shot. I can just see you opening the box and marching right to those falls. I tried very hard to make my first 5D shot impressive. I couldn't wait and ended up taking pictures of an apartment building.

Great shot and composition. You do realise that all your shots will have to be fantastic now, with none thrown away ;)

Thanks everyone for the comments. I appreciate it.

Not right away, but close. I had it about three days before our group took the trip. It was raining during that time as well, so luckily, I was held captive with nothing to shoot until I saw the waterfall. :)

Oh no. I hope I am up to the task. Wait... I could just post all the good ones and say that I had none to throw away. :D

Beautiful falls! My favorite in Bankhead Forest. Go back in mid to late May when the mountain laurel by the falls are in bloom.
Thanks for sharing!

I really loved this location. I just wish I had been able to get back there since January of 2007. I need to make plans to do that this year.
