Sea Creek Falls – Georgia

Sea Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014I 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.

Long Creek Falls – Georgia

Long Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014I’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.
