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.
