"Contentment in Solitude" - Autumn Waterfall, Monongahela National Forest, West Virginia

Here's another fresh image straight from the wilds of West Virginia. As mentioned in my previous post, I worked really hard, yet patiently during my trips this autumn. After visiting this area of West Virginia for 7 years in a row, I figured that I had already seen (but not photographed) almost everything that the area had to offer. Boy, was I wrong. During my last day of the trip as I drove down a small forest road, I decided to make my way along a small stream that crossed my path. After several hundred feet of bushwhacking, I heard the familiar roar of the waterfall and found myself above a towering 60 foot tall waterfall. With camera gear in tow, I made my way down set after set of beautiful waterfalls. This image captures a small whirlpool below what was my favorite of the waterfalls found on this stream.
