Blue Hole Falls, Fiery Gizzard Trail. December 2014

From a late-December hike along the Fiery Giz­zard trail, taken with Neopan Acros 100 (shot at 200). Devel­oped in Ilfosol 3 1+14.

A some­what stren­u­ous trail, but well worth the effort. I didn’t bring along a tri­pod so this was bal­anced on a con­ve­nient rock. Plenty of those around for using as makeshift sup­ports! The water was so clear, and so cold, it was amaz­ing. Some­times I still expect all water to be the same as that in south Mis­sis­sippi — silty, yel­low and so thick you lose your hand three inches under. This was the total oppo­site and just beautiful.

There are more pho­tos to come off this last roll of the year, but I had to go on and post this one (which may be my favorite from the walk).

Wan­der­ing around down­town, look­ing for any­thing new and find­ing sub­ject mat­ter indeed. Back­sides of build­ings and what was in front of my nose, but with a new attentiveness.

All in all, a suc­cess­ful out­ing as the sun­set around Asheville.

After a drift­ing storm, dri­ving through the Bilt­more is always a pleas­ant expe­ri­ence. Espe­cially with hun­dreds of acres of quiet around, it was a great moment to have some pho­tog­ra­phy with a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive — not near the archi­tec­tural details as nor­mal, but a greater sense of the space and dis­tance between the ele­ments on the Estate.
