After a sleepless night I decided a sunrise hike was in order. But not just any ordinary hike, a photography hike! So I loaded up all my gear, both photography and vlogging, and headed for Bunker Hill Road in Hereford, MD. I have put on a few pounds lately and, I figured even if did not get any pictures, carrying around the 29 pounds of equipment (no joke, I weighed it when I got home) ought to be good for me.

Blackwater Falls is a State Park in West Virginia. It happens to contain my favorite waterfall, Elakala Falls. On the night of Friday the 20th of April 2018 I left my home and headed to the wilds of West Virginia. I left at 9pm in order to do some Milky Way shooting when I arrived in West Virginia. The Milky Way shoot post will be coming later, but after sunrise on the 21st I went waterfalling. I visited both the first and second falls of Elakala on the Shay Run and boy had they changed!
Sometimes I feel in control of my life, like I have found the handle on the suitcase and everything is going well. Sometimes it is like trying to hold onto a bar of soap, no handles and nothing to grip. Right now its the latter, I feel like everything is spinning and swirling out of my control. Not necessarily bad, just very much out of my control. Over the last several months I have taken what I believe to be the next step in photography and began to try and share my knowledge with others. I am putting myself out on the line even more so than when displaying my photographs. It is just me and my knowledge out there with no photographs to hide behind.
