This was photographed during my very first evening at Blackwater Falls State Park. We had come for the waterfalls, but when we discovered this view I just knew I had to try and shoot it!We got VERY lucky in that the air was really turbulent - thunderstorms had just come through and there were all manner of cool clouds putting on a show. I knew if the sun wasn’t blocked there’d be a good light display, so I worked hard to find a composition I liked and, frankly, that I hand’t really seen before.After some messing around, I decided on this location – it was a little close to the edge (too close if you ask my wife), but I really liked the way the stone leads out to the valley and sky.As the sun sank below the horizon the clouds really started to light up. I snapped away for about 15 minutes before everything started going grey. If you’re guessing we hiked back to the car with big ‘ol stupid grins on our faces, you’re right!
