Photo Spot Details

Hike about 1 1/2 miles along the “Palmetto Trail” that runs about 15 feet above river (at least this day). The Suwannee River is on the left, and there are several spots along this trail where you can descend the bank to get to the river bed.

The river was 48 feet which made for calm waters. The river reaches up to level 3 whiter water rapids by 60 – 70 feet or so.

This was shot in early June 2017 on a cloudy day, around 9:45 AM on a tripod with the Nikon D750, 16-35mm f/4G @ 17mm, ISO 200, 25/1, f/18
