Waterfall in North Carolina
Sorry guys, not exactly sure which park this was in (whirlwind photo safari, many stops!) I was trying my hand at the “post card edit” style of editing, hope this is good enough for you guys! I can tell you there is an upper falls (with an overlook) and a lower falls (where this shot was taken) and I hiking all the way down to the plunge basin for this image. I will caution anyone who make the hikes up here…take plenty of water! It is a long way down, the change of socks came in handy, as did the trail mix and protien bars! And the hike back out is…steep! The portion of the falls visible here is about eighty feet, there are two more smaller falls about this final drop bt those remain hidden in the rocks. The river above that feeds this looks so calm and peaceful, then it drops rapidly down and makes a couple of twists before finally flowing out from this lowest level of the falls.

Location: North Carolina, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, Induro CT213 tripod, Induro BHD2 ballhead.

Full view of the amazing and beautiful Triple Falls found in the Dupont State Forest of North Carolina. This is from the only vantage point on the trail (a STEEP trail), heading up to High Falls. If you have been following my blog, then up to this point you have seen several images of Triple Falls, this is the only one that shows all three levels of the falls. All of the other images were taken at the very base of these gorgeous falls and from that point, almost none of the upper levels are visible. My apologies in advance to those who know that I have over exposed the white water, but getting a proper exposure (or correct) exposure, although important), was not quite as important to me at that time. My son can attest that my only real concern was trying to catch my breath! This trail is a steep one, and we were hiking up instead of down to get this shot.
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 25-70 2.8 lens, Induro CT213 tripod, Induro BHD2 ballhead, and a circular polarizing filter (mainly to cut down as much as possible on shutter speed).
As always, this image is available for purchase in many formats, sizes, and styles. Also as available printed on cups, mouse pads, aprons, and many other items. Please see my “About” page for more info. Your continued support greatly helps to finance me getting out there to capture these images and bring them back here for your viewing pleasure and is GREATLY appreciated!


Bridal Viel Falls, DuPont State Forest, NC, USA

Landscapes and Seascapes

Decided to try this in black and white and see how the blogging world feels about it. We all know there is something magically calming and relaxing about the sound of falling water…like rain on a tin roof, a thatch over hang, simple water fountains, even large water features in the home or office send this soothing sound to those who will listen. I spent several hours here and never got tired of the gushing, flowing, and splashing of this amazing Triple Falls waterfall in the DuPont State Forest of North Carolina, USA.
