Western North Carolina offers vast and verdant hardwood forests and hundreds of waterfalls. Some falls are grand and easily accessible, while others are surprises off the beaten path.
Spring is the perfect time to experience this region. Waterfalls are full and flowing and the forest floor is alive with lush undergrowth and the last spring wildflowers.
Our primary focus will be on waterfalls. Along the way cascading streams, towering trees, tree-covered ridges and moss-covered boulders.
Our trip will be a hybrid of a photography tour and a workshop. To make the most of our time, we will spend the day in the woods going from fall to fall, while in the late afternoon we will return to our hotel for time to edit our images before we review and critique our work.
This plan allows us to take our time at each waterfall. We will discuss how to compose images. We will examine each place for its best views, graphic elements and potential for abstract images.
Our small group of eight photographers and two leaders means you will get plenty of individual attention in the classroom and in the field.
