Bean Creek Falls – Georgia

Bean Creek Falls-Toby Gant

The falls on Bean Creek (Near Helen, Georgia) are easily accessible via Bean Creek Road in Sautee Nacoochee, GA. The road runs behind the falls in this image. If you are looking for an adventure and don’t care to go on a long hike this could be the spot for you. Unfortunately, the area is heavily littered. When I return to these beautiful falls, I will be taking some trash bags along with me.

This image was captured with my 24-70mm f/2.8, tripod mounted using a circular polarizer. Thanks for stopping by. You can find my gallery images on my site at

Bean Creek – Georgia

Bean Creek-Toby Gant-I went on a short adventure today to explore Bean Creek near Sautee Nacoochee, Georgia. I explored the creek near the Bean Creek Falls. It isn’t terribly far off the beaten path. Helen, Georgia and Unicoi State Park are just a few minutes away. It was an incredibly beautiful place. If you find yourself in the area, it is worth the few minutes it will take to detour to the falls.

I captured this image with my 24-70mm f/2.8. The camera was tripod mounted and I used a circular polarizer. I will be posting an image of the falls in the coming days. As always thanks for stopping by.

Becky Branch Falls – Georgia

Becky Branch Falls-Toby Gant-0452I slipped away to Becky Branch Falls near Clayton, Georgia over the weekend. It’s a very short hike up a relatively steep grade. (It is definitely worth the tiny bit of effort. Be careful on the wooden bridges near the parking lot if it has been raining. I’ll spare the details.) I spent over an hour at the falls and was not disturbed by another human for the duration of my visit. I will most assuredly revisit these falls. Especially if I am in the mood to spend some time in solitude in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

This image was captured with my new 24-70mm f/2.8. It is steadily working into more and more of my workload. I am very pleased with it. As always, thanks for stopping by.

Wolf Creek – Georgia

Wolf Creek-Toby Gant-0391

I just explored Wolf Creek and the Falls below Lake Trahlyta in Georgia’s Vogel State Park. It is an incredibly beautiful park. This mountain lake is stunning. There is plenty of hiking in the area if you enjoy a walk. There is also canoe rentals on the lake.

I cannot express enough how great the move to a full frame DSLR has been for me. If you are on the fence and shoot landscapes primarily, I would highly recommend making the jump.

I captured this image using my 16-35mm f/4 tripod mounted with a circular polarizer. As always, thanks for stopping by. You can see my gallery images at:
