Newland, North Carolina, USA.
The winter weather has kept me bundled up and cabin bound a good bit the last two weeks.  I'm getting out slowly and will catch up on posts.  Happy New Year to everyone.

Linville Falls. NC.USA.

250mm f22 1/4 ISO:200
This is Linville Falls in North Carolina. It is a three stage cascade that is breathtakingly beautiful.  It was about 30deg. today and I was bundled up pretty tight for the 1 mile hike to this vantage point.  It was a bit more difficult due to the 6 inch ice pack we walked to get there.  I slowed the shutter for the water flow effect and manage to capture several good shots at 1/4s... which is pretty slow for hand held.  The post hike huffing wasn't helping.  I have a pretty good "cat" story from this water fall location.  One day I'll bring it to the blog for you...
