About The Photographers

First Paragraph of Introduction

      For some reason, neither crisp photographs nor choice words can fully convey the elegance of a waterfall. Maybe that’s because a waterfall is more than just a spectacle; viewed properly, it’s an experience. Simple and sublime, falling water ranks among nature’s most enjoyable creations. You have certainly seen the classic image: Hidden in the folds of a colorful mountain gorge, water hurtles off a cliff and lands in a frothy stew before carrying onward in its persistent rush to lower ground. Now that’s picturesque, right? That’s partially why we chose to do this book.

Reader Comments & Reviews

Beautiful Waterfalls of South Carolina, March 24, 2008
By: Dorothy Richardson

"I just love to look at the pictures of these beautiful waterfalls as I plan my visit. This book has lovely pictures and is very informative. "

 

Great Photos!, January 10, 2007
By: Scott C. Evers

"As a photographer, I found the photography to be spectacular! The commentary was equally well done. I highly recommend this guide."

 

What a beautiful book!, July 26, 2003
By: Thelonius Sprector

"The amazing thing about this beautiful book, to me, is the fact that these two guys (Brooks and Cook) wrote this book while they were still students at Clemson University. When I was a student, my weekends were never this productive. Heck, I couldn't even afford food. Any one who was able to produce such beautiful pictures on a student's budget merits my greatest admiration. Great directions, too. I really liked the inclusion of GPS coordinates for waypoints. "
