Britt and I spent Labor Day Weekend in Nantahala National Forest off Forest Road 67 in between Franklin and Hayesville, but close to the Georgia border. The forest there is beautiful, with lush green foliage everywhere and waterfalls aplenty. I encourage everyone to explore this place and take in what the forest has to offer.
Below are some images I made in the forest. The light was tricky to work with but worked to my advantage in some cases. I didn't get the typical waterfall shot due to harsh shadows and blown highlights caused from the bright sunlight and lack of overcast skies, but this allowed me to focus on other things happening at the waterfall. The first two images were made at Mooney Falls. The second two were made near our campsite off the road.
In conditions where lighting is less than ideal, one must adapt and work with what's provided!
