Blue Hole Falls, Fiery Gizzard Trail. December 2014

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).

Downtown Asheville, February 2011

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.

Snowy Biltmore

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.
