Shenandoah Water Falls

On the early morning that I drove to the Shenandoah Park  looking for water falls to photograph, I was met with the heaviest deluge of rain, for the longest period, that I can ever remember. On the bright side, I felt this would mean great water flow at the falls. The roads were narrow, full of potholes and considered dangerous. Along the way you could hear the rush of the water.   Arriving at my destination, Stony Man Mountain, the highest point, the sky cleared.  The top of the falls were not accessible so I headed for lower points. Here the water flowed through lush green foliage, and the stream beds were full of gorgeous rocks. The best part was that the light was text book!
