It's hard to blank one's mind to the danger when standing at the base of a towering waterfalls. But about 33 years ago, dozens died from a torrent of water that cascaded over the top of this cliff, creating a wide swath of death of debris on the campus of Toccoa Falls College in northeast Georgia. About 40 people died as a result of a dam's collapse.
Since that day in 1977, the waterfalls has remained a thing of beauty, drawing visitors and students from this Christian college.
With a height of 186 feet, it is difficult to get close and still capture the entirely of the falls.
Using a wide-angle lens, I was able to get within a few yards. Standing on rocks and bracing my camera against a monopod, I captured the falls but was unable to frame a rainbow created as sunshine kissed the mist.
