Lower Falls

Lower Falls

Here is another beautiful falls I photographed this summer that benefited from the copious amount of rain we experienced in June and July. In fact, it had just started raining as I took this shot of the lower falls at the very popular Graveyard Fields area along the Blue Ridge Parkway. This photo also marks the end of life of my much-used Nikon D80—at my next photo location that day I tripped and fell, damaging the camera beyond its value. I am now the proud owner of a refurb Nikon D7000 (yeah, I stay on the forward curve of technology), which of course owes its lineage to the old D80. No full-frame DSLR—or mirrorless system—for me yet.

  • Alas, the life of a great photographer: Successfully traversing slippery rocks (tripod, camera, and other equipment in hand), achieving this great shot, only to avert a near fall on the way back to the bank. Then, a few hours later, another great shot but on the "easier" return, the disastrous trip, leaving the much-loved camera severely damaged. But there lies redemption in the beautiful shots!

  • Hi, Beth! It was nice to meet you and your dad yesterday. And here's your shot of Second Falls you were telling me about... very nice! ... always love to banter with fellow photographers, especially those passionate for such beautiful scenes!
