High Falls

DuPont State Forest

When myself and good friends Jeremy Chapman, Karl Hassel, and John Deas arrived at the High Falls parking lot in North Carolina's DuPont State Forest I was hoping the sun had not elevated too far into the sky. As we made our approach on the trail the more concerned I got, not only because of the position of the sun but also because there wasn't a cloud to be seen. Well, when we got there I was both sad and happy. I was sad because I knew photographs from the base of the falls was completely out of the question, however the morning light was absolutely stunning as it backlit the trees in a beautiful golden glow. Would you believe this was taken in spring? The first time I visited this falls was a couple years ago when my good friend Jeff Burcher and I decided to head out in the rain from our nearby rental since I'd never seen it before and I was determined to finally get a photograph of it. We only shot it from this perspective and I got couple great shots that I liked, and unfortunately on this trip it was again the only perspective I got of the falls. I'm really looking forward to a return visit on a gloomy day, because I want to spend some quality time with this towering 100 ft tall beauty, and I'm sure it will take another twenty trips knowing my luck with the weather and North Carolina waterfalls, but I'll get it.
