Waterfalls of North Carolina
by Thomas Nighswander
I recently had the opportunity to visit The DuPont State Forrest in North Carolina after finishing up a photography workshop in Charleston, SC.
Having a couple days to kill during my drive North, I decided to take a look around The North Carolina High Country.
After a quick Google search it didn’t take long to find over 200 waterfalls on my path home.
Being a loyal Michigander, I am spoiled by my home state's beautiful waterfalls in the U.P. But the Waterfalls in NC didn’t disappoint, and were easy to access via short hikes from the car.
Hooker Falls was my fist stop. The low flat rocks gave me the opportunity to use the multi angle center column on my Vanguard tripod.
I also decided to try out my Kirk BH-1 ball head on the sturdy carbon fiber legs. The Havana 33 messenger bag worked great for the short hikes to the falls.
My next stop on my way north was a Bridal Veil Falls, were the water literally cascades over the road.
I am now off to teach another photography workshop in The Smokey Mountains with my Vanguard tripods and Havana bag by my side.
Thank you for reading my blog and stay posted for more from the Smokies.
