    Linville Falls, Linvile Gorge Wilderness, Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina, USA

    Hey everybody,

    I’m currently on a photo trip in North Carolina, shooting on and around the Blue Ridge Parkway. Having arrived to the area yesterday in the late afternoon, I figured that I’d be able to make the most out of the remainder of the day by hiking down into the Linville Gorge. Linville Falls is a beautiful 45-foot waterfall located on… you guessed it– the Linville River. There are a multitude of trails in and around the gorge, each providing different views of the waterfall, river, and surrounding mountains, I chose to hike down into the gorge and get a more up close and personal view of the falls. After spending thirty minutes running around below the falls cleaning natural debris and litter (ugh!!!) from the site, I had a little while to shoot before the sun retreated for the evening. Here’s a quickly laptop-processed shot from this past evening.

    Spring Sunrise at Bear Rocks, Dolly Sods, West Virginia, USA

    Hey everybody,

    I’m out in Davis, West Virginia with Joe Rossbach assisting on his waterfalls workshop. We didn’t end up leaving Baltimore until about 10:30PM last night because Joe was doing a camera club presentation, and by the time we had camp set up it was 2:30AM. We only got about three hours of sleep, but we were rewarded with some really nice light at sunrise!
