I recently visited Sea Creek Falls near Suches, Georgia. The falls are isolated and the area doesn’t seem to be heavily used. If you’re looking for quiet solitude this would be a pretty solid bet. These beautiful falls are certainly worth a visit if you can make the time.
Some of the online directions can be misleading. But, shortly after turning left onto FS264 from GA-60, you’ll be presented with a sharp bend to the right where you can ford the creek in your vehicle or you can park on the left. Just park on the left and there is a decent trail that runs a short 0.3 miles to the falls. There were large sections of the trail pooled with water and we hadn’t had much rain at the time I visited. You’ll also need to wade part of the creek to get a good perspective. So, I highly recommend wearing your waterproof shoes.
I captured this image using my 24-70mm f/2.8, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. I capture GPS coordinates with my outdoor captures. If you need exact GPS coordinates for the sites I visit you can find them at my flickr location. Thanks as always for stopping by.
I’d visited Long Creek Falls on the Appalachian Trail back in the spring. It was a terrible day for photography. The sun was bright and well into the afternoon sky. There were shadows cast everywhere from the dense forest canopy that was above me. I took the time to enjoy the time spent in the outdoors, but there was no hope for decent captures of the falls.
I went back last week knowing the early morning hours would be best. Even though I hit the trail later than I had planned to, there was a thick blanket of grey clouds overhead that allowed me to shoot at my leisure. It was a wonderful day to be outdoors with my camera.
