Arkansas Waterfall by Rhavethstine Arkansas Waterfall by Rhavethstine
I've been meaning to pay more attention to my color photography for quite some time, but keep getting distracted with B&W IR. Here's something from my trip across the states last October, which brought me through lovely Arkansas.

The waterfall you see here is the result of a short cave that you can crawl back into if you are so inclined. You crawl through the shallow streambed in a horizontally flat passageway, between two hard layers of limestone where the softer layer between them has eroded away. Farther inside is an underground waterfall, between twenty and thirty feet tall. I found it quite unnerving to be in a cavern with water pouring into it from the ceiling. I had actually managed to crawl through the water with my camera and tripod with the intent of getting a shot of the rare (to me) spectacle, but lost my nerve entirely too soon. The only way out was to stoop down and crawl back the way you came. Fun, nonetheless. :D

Critiques are always welcome.

This is after Eden Falls right?

I had not known that the previous fall was called Eden Falls, but I did a little research and I recognized it right away. So yes. :) I've got shots of that one, too, but figure one waterfall from one location is enough for my gallery at the moment. :)

I know you posted some Arkansas photos last year. Did you make it here? Short, but top-notch hike if you haven't been there. :thumbsup:

Yeah we stopped by this location in October, here is the link to the trip photos [link]

We really liked the Indian Creek hike, it was just as challenging as the hikes in the Southwest

Nice collection of shots. Fall is seriously amazing in that part of the country.

Damn, man. There is a lot of content on your website that I've never seen. Very nice graphic design and diverse portfolio!
