One more from Jones Gap State Park. There were hundreds of small scenes like these everywhere you looked. I could have spent an entire day here. If you ever get the chance check it out, northwest South Carolina. You will not be disappointed.
Two versions of my favorite image from Jones Gap State Park in South Carolina. This was my second time photographing here, the last time we got totally rained out by a huge thunderstorm. This time the rain came the night before. I loved the composition with the boulder and the old broken tree. I really like the black and white best, but the color is pretty amazing too. It is a 5 shot HDR processed in Photomatix Pro and then tweaked in Nik Color Efex Pro. The second was converted in Nik Silver Efex Pro.
Well I was too late for the wildflower bloom, but not for the falls. The falls are gorgeous and just a short hike away. I took this on my trip to visit friends in Tamassee, SC. I had been here before a few years back, but never got any images like this. If you are ever in the area check this out, it is also one of the best wildflower areas in the area.
