This is the most photographed spot in the state of West Virginia. It's pretty obvious why. Even in a state that's chock full of great places to shoot photos this one is the most popular. Mine is just one of thousands you might find on the net alone. The water is a bit soft here and the wheel was turning too fast to get the individual paddles. Yeah I should have set the shutter faster but I was concentrating on trying to get the colors there. It's pretty amazing that the trees around the place are so colorful if you catch them just right. And the water flows fast if they open the gate from the underground river. I have photos of that stuff that I shot with a film camera long ago. I scanned this one at some point. I need to dig out the rest of my stuff from WV because there's a lot of spectacular stuff. Like plants that eat bugs in Cranberry Glades, like the BASE jumpers going off the New River bridge. Like the New River Gorge. Kanawha Falls, the Cass Railroad, the big ridge between this part of the world and the east coast which is still the wildest place I was ever at. We used to jump in the car and head out for a weekend not even knowing where we were going. We took our bikes and rode an abandoned railroad bed miles into the wilderness. I rode my ATV along ridges just wide enough for an ATV to ride. Somewhere I have photos of all this stuff and much, much more.
