Falls on Dodd Creek – Georgia

Falls on Dodd Creek-Toby GantThe trail leading to Dukes Creek Falls follows Dodd Creek.  Almost a half mile into the hike to the main falls you have a view of these smaller falls on Dodd Creek. Personally, I preferred them to the much taller Dukes Creek Falls. But, no matter what your preference is, this site has something for everyone.

I captured this image using my 70-200mm f/2.8, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. As always, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Lovely shot! You got the water to smooth out that much with just a CPR? Wow! Was it dusk by then? I would have thought you’d have needed a neutral density filter if it was earlier…
    Any technique or macro info?

    • Thanks, John. Yes, it was dusk. I prefer to shoot falls in the early morning or late afternoon when possible. (I try to avoid the shadows cast by the overhead sun.) But, with the sun behind the horizon, I always shoot at a low ISO (100 or 200) and stop down the aperture usually to f/16 or f/18 depending on variables. The polarizer not only saves you an additional couple of stops. But, it allows you to remove any reflections or glare that might be on the water. It also helps to saturate the colors. Hope this helps.
