Familiarization

Anna Ruby Falls-Toby Gant-0260

I have added new gear to my camera bag. Wanting to grow more familiar with my new equipment, I thought what would be better than shooting in a familiar environment. Especially one with an embarrassment of riches. I ended up at Anna Ruby Falls near Helen, Georgia. I had an incredible afternoon shooting.

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

DeSoto Fall in Summer

DeSoto Falls-Toby Gant-0023

Yesterday was the first time I visited upper Desoto Falls in the summer months. I believe it may be even more stunning with the saturated green colors and flowers everywhere you look.

I captured this image using my new 24-70mm f/2.8 and full frame camera. It will be a great addition to my camera bag. Thanks for stopping by.

Mud Creek Falls – Georgia

Mud Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2013

I left home to visit Black Rock Mountain State Park in Mountain City, GA. I planned to hike the Ada Hi Falls trail. Unfortunately, upon arriving I found that part of the trail had collapsed and that it will be closed until further notice. Happy that I was not not on the trail when it collapsed, I grabbed my trusty smartphone and looked for other falls in the area. Mud Creek Falls was nearby. The directions on the site I had found were not very specific. I attempted to locate the falls anyway. Making the long story shorter the directions were not only not specific. They were wrong altogether. I was eventually able to locate the falls and it was well worth the time I invested aimlessly driving in circles.

I captured this image using my 16-35mm f/4 tripod mounted. I will look forward to returning to visit these beautiful falls again.

Merritt in Late June

Merritt Island-Toby Gant-2013

So, (after another visit to Merritt Island in the summer months) I can say if you are searching for an abundance of wading birds, your best bet would be springtime. There are still some wading birds. There are also plenty of alligators and snakes this time of year. However, I spent most of my time this visit enjoying the scenery and the moment.

I captured this image using my 16-35mm f/4 tripod mounted. Thanks as always for stopping by.
