Wide Angle Paradise
McCammon Branch Falls can go from a muddy flood to a trickle in a matter of days. On a good day (as shown here) it offers pristine waterfalls, and an emerald pool. This view is from underneath a huge rock shelter. After a heavy rainfall the falls appear to be one large muddy wall of falling water. The water even moves up into the trees, and your only exit path becomes a stream. The force of the falling water creates a strong mist laden wind which passes through the entire length of the long rock shelter. Therefore it is impossible to keep a camera lens dry long enough to take a decent photograph under extreme flood conditions. Regardless, I feel very fortunate to have been present to view floods here on a few occasions.
