Dry Falls

All last week I was traveling for business.  I had the opportunity to drive through North Carolina.  I took this chance to stop at a few waterfalls along my route that I had researched and decided would be worth my while.

The first falls I stopped at was Dry Falls.  It's so named because you can walk behind the waterfall without getting wet.  This is a very popular waterfall located just north of Highlands, NC,it's inside the Nantahala National Forest and is about a 65 foot fall.

It's very popular because it can be seen from the road and there is virtually no hike to get to it.  From the parking lot you can view the falls from an overlook, or, if you choose to go behind the falls, there is a staircase leading down to a path that takes you behind the falls.  That is also one of the reasons I choose this fall to visit.  I had very little time to spare on my trip, so I needed to choose falls that had little to no hike involved.

If you look closely at the image, you can see the walkway that goes behind and around the falls. It was a chilly, fall day when I was there, so the crowds were at a minimum.

I made this image using my Sony A7R II, La-EA3 Lens Adapter and Tamron 24-70mm Lens.  I also used a circular polarizer and, of course, my Sirui W-2204 tripod.
