Fall in South Carolina – Brasstown Falls and Chattooga Belle Farm

These are photos from last Friday (the 13th!) up in nearby South Carolina.  This area might as well still be considered Georgia as it’s north of Toccoa and South of Clayton by about 30 minutes.  Brasstown Falls (not to be confused with the highest point in Ga Brasstown Bald) is a really nice waterfall with 3 sections.  Highly recommended as the walk is easy and you can see all the views in less than an hour.

Here’s an example of the dial on the X-E1 always getting nudged into Aperture priority f/22, which works well for slow shutter waterfall shots

The Sony FE 50mm 1.8 is yet another wonderful rendering lens in the long line of 50mm’s that I’ve had over the years.  It actually reminds me a bit of the Minolta 50mm 1.7.

The next spot right up the road from the falls is Chattooga Belle Farm.  Amazing 270 degree views looking north towards the Blue Ridge Mountains.  They have U-Pick sections with peaches, scuppernongs, persimmons and apples.  I’ve definitely have to remember this place next year for the spring blossoms.
