Triple Falls photographer at the Dupont State Forest, NC, USA

This is an outdoor portrait I did of my son on our day hike to several falls in the Dupont State Forest. The color version of this is on my website as well and is equally as awesome (of course I am biased, it is a portrait of my son! lolol!)

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, Induro CT213 tripod, Induro BDH2 ballhead

As always, my images are copyright protected and available to you as wall art prints, wraps, and other merchadise. More info available on my “About” page. You can click on any of my images to see them in HIGH RES. Thanks for visiting!

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!

While photographing the beauty of Triple Falls in the Dupont State Forest of North Carolina, USA; I noticed a young photographer taking a moment to take in the vast waterfall and all of its grandeur. As luck would have it, he remained motionless for the entire 3.8 seconds of this exposure. I converted this to black and white to remove the distraction of color from the image and bringing out the classic timelss quality to it. The recent rain provided a little extra volume to the flow of this beautiful fall, I have more images of this waterfall posted earlier in my bog. Please check them out!

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8, Full ND filter, Induro CT213 Tripod, and an Induro BHD2 ballhead.
Note: I had this printed as a 20×30 gallery wrap and have this hanging in my office (the young photographer pictured here is my son).
