I haven't been shooting too much over the last year or so and trying to get back at it and work the kinks out. I was able to get out (on my birthday nonetheless) and visit Amicalola. Hadn't been there much or in years, but I came away with some images I like pretty well. Amicalola is so tall, that I find myself using portrait orientation more than I normally would.

Some info on the waterfall:

At 729 feet high, Amicalola Falls is the highest waterfall in Georgia. The area was originally inhabited by the Cherokee Indians and in that language the name means "tumbling waters". It was made a part of the 829 acre state park in 1911, although it was not developed until the 1950's. It is also considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia. It is a very popular scenic spot in Georgia and is often quite crowded. The falls themselves are accessible via a steep pathway from the base of the falls that also included many stair cases.

Thanks Stan, and that is correct. It is some number over 700 although I don't remember the exact number. That's after you have already climbed the trail of course. It's a work out, especially with a full load of gear.
