Date of Visit: Mid April 2013
Conditions: Overcast (first visit) / Sunny (second visit)
Time of day: Mid day
Photography: This location is actually a pre-Civil War stone quarry that has been converted into a garden by a local garden club. I went to this location twice, a couple of days apart. The first day was overcast. The even light on that day enabled me to photograph the dogwood bracts in the foreground with a medium telephoto lens. The second day was full sun. With this light I chose to include a significant amount of the blue sky. I shot the falls straight on, taking care to exclude the condos (to the left) from the shot.
