High Falls
Little River
DuPont State Forest
North Carolina

When we arrived at the High Falls parking lot in North Carolina's DuPont State Forest I was hoping the sun had not elevated too far into the sky. As we made our approach on the trail the more concerned I got, not only because of the position of the sun but also because there wasn't a cloud to be seen. Well, when we got there I was both sad and happy. I was sad because I knew photographs from the base of the falls were completely out of the question, however the morning light was absolutely stunning as it backlit the trees in a beautiful golden glow. Would you believe this was taken in spring? The first time I visited this falls was a couple years ago when my good friend Jeff Burcher and I decided to head out in the rain from our nearby rental since I'd never seen it before and I was determined to finally get a photograph of it. We only shot it from this perspective and I got couple great shots that I liked, and unfortunately on this trip it was again the only perspective I got of the falls. I'm really looking forward to a return visit on a gloomy day, because I want to spend some quality time with this towering 100 ft tall beauty, and I'm sure it will take another twenty trips knowing my luck with the weather and North Carolina waterfalls, but I'll get it.

Lower Tier
Triple Falls
Little River
DuPont State Forest
North Carolina

Triple Falls is one of those falls that when you first lay eyes on the whole thing you are simply awestruck. Standing at the overlook on the Triple Falls Trail you see the river tumble 180 ft over 3 distinct drops, it gives you the impression it's twice as large as it really is. Once you make your way down to the falls and you visit each tier you realize it's not as big as you thought, but it's still impressive. Of the three tiers my favorite is the lower, it has the greatest personality and offers numerous isolation opportunities. This is the the foot of the approximately 60 ft. tall tier, which also happens to be my favorite section to shoot. I love how the water races in from the right then doglegs over a small ledge creating this beautiful uniform flow. On a cloudy day you could spend hours here, heck on a sunny day we spent a couple at this spot before the sun finally ran us off.

Sunset
Graveyard Fields
Milepost 418
Blue Ridge Parkway
North Carolina

5 Image HDR

Have you ever been like, "Oh yeah, we're going to have a flipping awesome sunset tonight" and it completely goes awry and you get absolutely nothing when the real show is about to start? Well, it happens more often than not to me, and in this case when we set up to shoot sunset from the Graveyard Fields parking lot we got gypped, kinda. After shooting the 2nd Falls on Yellowstone Creek we made our way back up to the parking lot, it was storming over the mountain across the Blue Ridge Parkway but over the fields it looked quite apparent that we were in store for a show and we set up along the southwest end of the lot. At first there was some color and I took a few shots, but do you see those black clouds in the upper left hand corner of the photograph? Well, you wouldn't believe it, but they moved in from the south, quite quickly I might add, completely obscuring the colorful scene beginning to happen. Although this was pretty frustrating I was hoping that some of the pre-black cloud invasion shots turned out good. Although it wasn't what I was looking for, I did get something I liked.

Waterfall On Log Hollow Branch
Log Hollow Branch
Pisgah National Forest
North Carolina

5 Image HDR

When I first visited this waterfall two years ago I absolutely loved it, however I really didn't get to spend any quality time with it on that first trip, not only because of a steady rain that had set in, but there was a bit too much flow on the falls. The trail is located several miles on a forest road, the .3 mile hike to the falls is one of the easier in the Brevard area. After watching the rainfall totals for a couple weeks I knew that the lower flow falls would be a struggle to shoot since there had not been much rain over the previous week. I had a feeling Log Hollow would be at it's best and boy was it as the water just draped over the rocks. We spent quite a bit of time here shooting numerous compositions and just really soaking in the beauty of this gorgeous waterfall high up in the Blue Ridge Mountians.

Sunset
Black Balsam Knob
Pisgah National Forest
North Carolina

5 Image HDR

I've visited the Blue Ridge Parkway umpteen times over the last several years and one place I've never paid a lick of attention to is Black Balsam Knob. Boy, have I been missing out. At the suggestion of Flickr friend Tim Williams, myself and good friends, Randy Sanger, Karl Hassel, Todd Williams and Jeremy Chapman made the .5 mile 400 ft elevation gain hike up for sunset. Well, some of us did, myself, Randy and Karl chose to stay a little under halfway from the top where there were some cool exposed rocks. Sunset itself was very cool to watch but just didn't have the impact I was expecting. After several minutes it was beginning to look like post sunset was going to be a dud too, but in the final minutes a last blast of light colored the sky and then quickly it was gone.
