Flat Rock Falls
Steele Creek, NC
June 2014

The rock formations are fabulous here at Steele Creek. There are so many things to shoot here.  I thought this was a tranquil shot among the many rapidly flowing parts of the stream Like where I was standing.  I was knee deep in the rapids, the water swarming around the camera which was set on the tripod about a foot above the water.

 I had posted this previously, but it was SOC only lightly edited for a little color saturation and contrast.  I thought i would tighten it up a little...

Harmony - Steele Creek North Carolina
July 2014
I have so many shots of this creek. I wander up and down, looking at the details, the different angles and compositions and it always seems there is something new to shoot. I am standing in the water in all of the shots, knee deep or more in most of them. Slippery rocks and fast moving water have made for some close calls in dropping the camera in the river/creek. It keeps the adrenaline going...

"Tranquility"

The rock formations are fabulous here at Steele Creek. There are so many things to shoot here.  I thought this little rocky lagoon was a very peaceful and tranquil place.

The Broad River.  Chimney Rock, NC.
July 2014.
Taken from a rock in the river, looking back towards the bank I had hiked down along, under the hanging branch.  Don't let that rock in the middle fool you.  It is covered with slime and amazingly slick.  I lost my footing on it and nearly fell over into the river.  (these are not the rocks that did my leg in though)  I suppose the hiking with a heavy pack and the tripod didn't help with balance as either.  Even with as much caution as I thought I was taking.

Taken Saturday on the Broad River in Chimney Rock, North Carolina. I waded out to the middle of the river and climbed onto a flat rock and set up camp there.  I took a number of shots with a couple different lenses.  I liked the shelter under the falls in the left of the frame with the drooling water.  I used my 70-200mm lens to get in closer as the depth and speed of the river made it impossible to get any closer than I was.  Safety first, yet on my way out with my backpack on and tripod in hand I slipped on some rocks and tore my calf muscle in my left leg, and I am now on crutches.

They're right, "The best camera is the one you have with you". Taken Nov 2009 on my iPhone 3GS.
