Yesterday, my wife and I were lucky enough to find some time for a liesurely drive through the mountains of North Carolina. She was patient enough to put up with my occassional stop to shoot a waterfall. Mill Shoals Falls near Rosman, North Carolina. Shot with D70, Sigma 10-20mm, polarizer and ND 4x. Bird Rock Falls is only about 200 yards downstream from Mill Shoals. Also shot with D70, Sigma 10-20mm and polarizer. Not shown in this view is a large, shear granite wall, to the left. As I was taking this shot, a young boy, just out of frame to the left, was catching an albino rainbow trout. Unfortunately, I was oblivious to him as I was shooting, and I missed the oppportunity to get a shot of his joy in catching this unusual fish. Though there are hundreds (and probably thousands) of waterfalls in western North Carolina, Whitewater Falls is definitely my favorite, though I have never been able to take a decent shot here. Shot with D70, Sigma 17-70mm and polarizer. Though multitudes visit this site, few of them ever notice the car that fell to the bottom of the falls, from a one lane, dirt road, about 60 years ago. Luckily, no-one was in it. However, its remains are still there. This shot was taken from as close to the falls as the National Park Service wants visitors to venture, as a number of people have fallen to their death at these falls. Whitewater Falls in autumn is probably my favorite sight. One more of Mills Shoals Falls. There are actually two falls here, as it is at the meeting of two streams. I probably should post a shot of the other drop, as it is quite interesting in that there is a house built right up against the falls.
