Not to bore you with a long tale; it's quite simple, we needed a vacation. The urge to head North and into the hills. This year we spent a few days in Ashville and a few more in Glenville. We had great weather in the city but somewhat lackluster light for the mountains; and lots of rain. Needless to say, we made the best of it and are still recouping from the getaway. Below is a collection of images from our trip. Some digital, some digital IR and some FILM. For all my photog geeks out there, it was my first attempt with traveling and "real" hiking with a 4x5 setup. If you want to know more send me a message.
All of the street scenes were from downtown Asheville. We've been before, but never really explored downtown. We also had a chance to meetup with our friends Cami and Robin that live in the area, had a great time and really appreciate their hospitality. The Asheville Arboretum, Brevard, Rosman, Sapphire, Cashiers and Highlands were a few of the other places we explored.
Up in the mountains, we stayed around Glenville Lake, in a small cabin just above a small but lovely waterfall. With the inclement weather, I spent a lot of time around that fall and the outflow streams. We couldn't have asked for a better location. We hiked Whiteside Mountain, High Falls (which by the way is not for the lethargic), Silver Run Falls and our new favorite, Panthertown Valley.
Hope you enjoy this selection of my favorites. If you would like to see the rest of the images, click here, to go the full gallery. (The gallery is hidden on my home page, but if you explore "All Galleries" you will find it at the bottom.
Also, keep in mind, the holidays are upon us and a custom signed print makes a unique gift.
