Night in NY
photo by Lucien Clergue, Nus de la Ville series; 1977
“Photo Date: January, 1894
First photograph ever taken by phosphorescent light. The face is that of Mr. Tesla, and the source of light is one of his phosphorescent bulbs. The of exposure, eight minutes. Date of photograph January, 1894.”
The photo above shows beautiful Elakala Falls at Blackwater State Park near Davis, West Virginia. These falls form as Shay’s Run plunges down a mountain ravine into the Blackwater River canyon. This view is of the first, and most widely visited, of a series of four cascades that make up Elakala Falls.
It drops 35 ft (11 m) over a ledge composed of Carboniferous sandstone. Downstream, the resulting current and orientation of rock outcrops creates a whirlpool which is quite pronounced here because of the photo’s long exposure time. Photo taken in June 2009.
