I feel I’ve been in a bit of a photographic slump lately. I know that every outing can’t result in something amazing, but lately I’ve produced very little that I really like. It gets frustrating at times. So this past weekend, I decided to head out to a place that never disappoints, Roan Mountain, on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina. Well, it was not good… For two days I was completely socked in by rain, ugly cloud cover and/or heavy fog. So I decided to head down the mountain and hike out to a waterfall that I’ve hiked to years ago. I tried to take several photos along the Appalachian trail on the way to the waterfall, but with the humidity at 100%, my lens fogged up completely every time I removed it from my bag. Getting even more frustrated, I was ready to turn back and head home but my son convinced me to keep going to at least see the waterfall. Finally we made it, and I guess the clearing in the trees allowed some of the humidity to escape and my lens to defog. I was able to get this photo of Laurel Falls. My son and I were the only ones there for about 30-40 minutes. We ate lunch on the rocks, and enjoyed listening to the sound of the rushing water. Although this may not be a “wall hanger”, I guess it turned out to be a pretty good morning. One my son and I will remember for quite some time.
