Behind The Falls

Abstracts of nature are always something to watch for while hiking, exploring or just driving, this photograph taken at Bridal Veil Falls in western North Carolina from behind the rush of water gives an interesting perspective on the surrounding landscape.

The mighty force of the moving water in the foreground sets the mood while the trees in the background give balance to what could have been an overwhelming image. The edge of the rock on the top of the shot was purposely left uncropped simply because without it the image would look more like a hurricane or storm more so then a waterfall, even cropped it still made an interesting photograph.

This area of North Carolina is very well known for its many waterfalls that are all worth seeing if in the area and time permits.
What makes Bridal Veil Falls so unique is that you can drive through it making it a great roadside attraction.

Photographed in 1996 using 35mm negative film and Pentax camera.
