This was going to be a post about an awesome waterfall in the South District of Shenandoah National Park. Jones Run Falls, to be exact. It didn't quite work out that way...
I must be honest with you. While I enjoy the journey, I am a 'destination' kind of guy. Most of my pleasure comes from reaching/photographing my destination. As for the journey? That's just gravy(but not my fave)
Well today was a little different. The gf and me were en route to Jones Run Falls, when we noticed two hikers looking up into the woods. What they were looking at turned out to be a yearling black bear. I attempted to mount the zoom lens, but by the time all of that took place, the bear was a long ways away through a dense forest... but still fun to see no doubt(turns out that the journey can be fun afterall!)
The trails in Shenandoah are carpeted with yellow and red leaves right now, and the color is only getting more intense. Below are a few images of the leaves that have fallen in the right spot:)
All images below(with the exception of the final image) are shot with the Sigma 50mm 1.4 through a Helioplan Circular Polarizer. The final image was shot with the Canon 70-200 2.8 L.
Are you prepared for the following image? Can you ever truly be prepared for a raging waterfall such as the one you are about to see? I present to you, in all its glory..... JONES RUN FALLS!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for looking... I will have one more post on Shenandoah(until the next time I go later this month) :)
