Chalked up another new waterfall recently, Mooney Falls, with my buddy Louis. This was an add-on to a hike to Big Laurel Falls. These falls are a bit west of Franklin, NC. While this photo isn't too bad, I don't think it's really worth a stop. But it is a very short and easy hike, only about 240 yards.

On the right side of the falls, there are numerous fallen trees and debris all over the place. There are only 2-3 possible compositions with the one below likely the best of them. I will admit that I used Photoshop to remove several limbs and other ugly distractions. Hopefully, this appears pretty seamless.
