Dukes Creek Falls 5295
Photograph - Photograph
A cascade at the base of the 150 foot drop of Dukes Creek Falls in White County, near Helen, Georgia.
Hernando DeSoto visited this area in 1540, and at least one of his men returned around 1560 to mine gold. A full fledged Georgia Gold Rush started here in 1829.
I made this photograph on a rainy March morning. I slowed the shutter speed with a six-stop neutral density filter, yielding a 50 second exposure. The camera sensor recorded the bright refection from each drop of water as it streaked by during the long exposure. The collection of these highlights gives a silky appearance to the water.
