This is Elakala Falls, one of several waterfalls along Shays Run in Blackwater Falls State Park in West Virginia. Although I've only spent a brief amount of time in West Virginia, I've seen enough to know it is a beautiful state with a ton of untapped photographic potential.

This photo is from last spring, I returned last autumn (just after peak fall color) only to find a large distracting log across the top of this waterfall (it wasn't the end of the world as there are a series of great waterfalls just downstream). Hopefully a chainsaw or two will take care of that problem before I make my next visit.
