Upper White Creek Falls w/Valentine Pond, Sipsey Wilderness, Alabama Take One This is a very lovely waterfall tucked just above a much larger falls on White Creek in the Sipsey Wilderness portion of Bankhead National Forest, in northern Alabama. Valentine Pond refers to the hottub like plunge pool located offset from the waterfall. This is a challenging waterfall to photograph. During the morning, the sun comes in from an angle that hits right onto the face of the waterfall. The pool is highly dependant on current flow conditions. It is more interesting at low water, when the level of the water is *just* above the rim of the pool. Unfortunately, then the waterfall is barely flowing. This is an image taken at high water, so the pool is less visible, but the waterfall is actually a waterfall, rather than a trickle. I had to do an unsual amount of work in DPP to get an acceptable photograph out of the RAW file. I'm curious what you all think.
