Falls of the James - after heavy rains

Met Randy Sanger at Nottoway Falls, then drove home before setting out to check out Pony Pasture Rapids, Newfoound Falls, & Falls of the James; rivers swollen by recent rains, so I didn't join Randy in going in river for view of Nottoway Falls, Newfound Falls was full of rushing water, & rocks in James River covered by fast-moving brownish water; harsh light kept us from photographing Newfound Falls, which Randy decided to exclude from his book because of lack of parking & posted, private land on either side of Newfound River; got to T. Tyler Potterfield bridge at Brown's Island about 6, waited until sunset (very little cloud cover for interest), too limited number of photos due to water level and coloring -- & fact observation deck was vibrating noticeably much of time
