Fall Creek Falls – Tennessee

Fall Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014I captured this image of Fall Creek Falls on my recent trip to the Tennessee State Park of the same name.  At 256 feet (78 meters), Fall Creek Falls is one of the tallest waterfalls in the US east of the Mississippi River.

I captured this image using my 16-35mm f/4, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. You can find more of my work on my website. Thanks for stopping by.

Mud Creek Falls – Georgia

Mud Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014This is my third visit to Mud Creek Falls near Sky Valley, Georgia. On my previous visits I always returned with some great images but, never of the actual falls. Perseverance payed off and on my visit over the weekend, I was able to capture the essence of the falls and bring back some great images.

I captured this image of the falls using my 16-35mm f/4, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer.

Cane Creek Cascades – Tennessee

Cane Creek Cascades-Toby Gant-2014I was fortunate to be able to spend a couple of days out in nature with my children last week. We visited Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee.  The trip was more about getting away than photography this time. But, I was able to capture a couple of images.

I captured this image of the Cane Creek Cascades using my 24-70mm f/2.8 tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. Speaking of my setup, Chris O’Keefe was kind enough to reach out and share a capture with me over the weekend. I suggest stopping by to see his work at http://milfordstreet.wordpress.com.

 

Return to Stonewall Creek Falls – Georgia

Stonewall Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014I visited Stonewall Creek Falls for the first time in September of last year. Although it is a beautiful area, the lighting was mixed on my first visit. I just found an opportunity to return and found much better light. I was rewarded with some great captures and I’ll look forward to returning again. If you were to visit these falls with capturing images in mind, I’d suggest the early evening hours.

I captured this image using my 24-70mm f/2.8, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. Thanks for stopping by.

Abrams Falls – Tennessee

Abrams Falls-Toby Gant-2014I captured this image of Abrams Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I was late getting on the trail due to circumstances a bit beyond my control. The sun was setting behind the horizon when I’d reached the half way point going to the falls. I passed a couple that informed me that they were the last people at the falls and that I would have them all to myself. It was a beautiful trail and hike. I made it to the falls with enough available light to capture the falls.

I captured this image using my 24-70mm, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. Thanks for stopping by.

Cades Cove – Tennessee

Cades Cove - Toby Gant-2014I captured this image of Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park early in the morning. The fog was very dense and visibility was limited. As I was driving slowly and watching intently for wildlife, I progressed down road. I was passing the fence posts steadily and as the fog slowly revealed the plain in front of me. That’s when I realized the fog was the subject I had been looking for.

I captured this image using my 16-35mm f/4 tripod mounted. You can see this and more of my gallery images on my site at http://tobygant.com/Gallery. Thanks as always for stopping by.

Glenn Falls – North Carolina

Glenn Falls-Toby Gant-2014After yet another failure to locate a specific waterfall (I’m sparing you the details. I’m not ready to talk about it yet.)  I visited a well documented fall that was less than spectacular. I was beginning to grow a bit desperate. I started to return home then I remembered passing a sign for Glenn Falls near Highlands, NC on an earlier trip. I had never researched the falls and I had no idea what to expect. But, it was near my location and at least I knew where to find it.  And I am very pleased I did. It was a beautiful hike and an impressive waterfall.
