A Different Perspective – Holcomb Creek Falls – Georgia

Holcomb Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014Climbing over a couple of boulders and a fallen tree gave me a very different perspective of Holcomb Creek Falls. I think pool of collected water formed from the constant spray of the falls lends itself to create an interesting composition.


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


Holcomb Creek Falls – Georgia

Holcomb Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014I had an incredible time exploring Holcomb Creek Falls near Clayton, Georgia over the weekend. It was a beautiful hike and the fall was stunning.

I captured this image using my 16-35mm f/4, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. For this capture, I had to balance the tripod on the rails of the footbridge at the base of the falls. The bridge was too narrow to set up my tripod properly.  I hope everyone else found the opportunity to get out and explore also. Thanks for stopping by.

Exploration Just for the Sake of It

Chimney Rock Branch-Toby Gant-2014What began as a well thought out plan to capture an image of Denton Branch Falls – Georgia, turned unexpectedly into a long hike exploring in North Carolina. The directions that I had from the web, were less than accurate. The roads were not all marked. The GPS names for the roads did not match the names of the roads that did have signs. So, I simply drove as far as I could drive down the main road. It lead to a small parking area and a trailhead. I grabbed my gear and started hiking. I explored the area and took a few shots. It was all about exploration at the time. I didn’t know what I would find.  It wasn’t until I returned home and looked at the GPS coordinates that I realized that I hadn’t even been exploring in Georgia. But, that I was actually in North Carolina for the entire hike. I guess no one has ever felt the need to mark the state line with a sign.

Needless to say. I never found Denton Branch Falls. If anyone has some good directions they would like to share, I’d love to visit the falls. Otherwise, they’re likely to move down my list. I guess I’ll look for them on a day that I wake feeling the need to explore and drive in circles.

After reviewing my EXIF data with my GPS coordinates, I discovered that this is an image of Chimney Rock Branch – North Carolina just before it reaches the Tallulah River. I captured it using my 24-70mm f/2.8, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. Thanks as always for stopping by.
