More from last week’s foray to the Blue Ridge… part of an unnamed cataract along Dugger’s Creek near Linville Falls. This is a landscape of minimal proportions, highlighting the moss-covered rock layers as much as the cascade. The fallen rosebay rhododendron petals along the rocks add a sense of scale. Again, it was mostly an open blue-sky day… I was here, standing in the creek for over an hour to get this shot before a cloud finally covered the sun long enough to get it. So often in these situations, the photographer’s greatest nemesis isn’t the elements or the technical aspects of the camera, but rather patience. I hope that shows here.
