Creek from Cascade Falls, North Carolina

Aug 7, 2011 | Rivers & Waterfalls

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

Cascade Falls was the last waterfall that we hit before leaving the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is a shot upstream at a small bridge that crosses over the river before arriving at Cascade Falls.

I love small wooden bridges like this, especially in a lush green environment. There’s something magical about this scenery that only being there can describe.
