Photography of the beauty of God's creation
...dedicated to His glory.

I (Dan) went to Amicalola Falls State Park for some alone time in October 2008. I set up a tent and camped, to save money...and because it was fun! Here's my campsite.






I spent most of my time out hiking and taking photos. This is a self-portrait when I was shooting a sunset the first evening I was there. (How did I shoot this photo? With a second camera in my outstretched right hand!)






A couple enjoying the same sunset, and the same marvelous fall colors, that I was enjoying.






Sunset my first day at Amicalola Falls State Park. It's a beautiful part of North Georgia, in the mountains.






These are the Amicalola Falls themselves (actually, just a small portion of them). It's the tallest cascading falls in the country, east of the Mississippi. This photo was shot just before nightfall.






This shot was taken in midday, with a polarizing filter to darken the sky.






I enjoyed taking long exposure photos, with a tripod, of the falling water. This one was a 30-second exposure!






This one was 6 seconds long. I like how the long exposures smooth out the appearance of the water.






One morning I hiked to the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, on Springer Mountain. I took a picture of myself to prove i was there.






A common sight, everywhere I went - my camera on my tripod. I shot over 300 photos on this trip!






Sunset.






Sunset with fall foliage.






My "workstation" inside my tent. I had power for light, heat, and my computer, to edit the photos I took!






Another long-exposure waterfall photo.






Some of the beautiful fall colors that surrounded me as I hiked the trails at Amicalola Falls.






Another self-portrait, in the woods. Thanks for visiting!
