Return to Little Bradley Falls
It's been too long since I entered anything in this blog. It wasn't by choice. Back issues this winter pretty much sidelined me from getting out and hiking. Camera gear isn't light as most of you already know. But hopefully that's behind me and I'll be able to resume my normal schedule. But not too long ago the weather was perfect for waterfall photography and with a friend we headed to Little Bradley Falls.
Little Bradley Falls is just east of Saluda, NC. It's not the easiest place to get to. To avoid a longer hike and several stream crossing, we opted for a short cut. Unfortunately, that involves descending a very steep roadside hill covered with rip rap rocks. But we took our time and paid attention to our footing and we got down OK. I kept telling my friend "It looks worse than it is". Yes - I lied.
But we were well rewarded for our efforts. Water flow was good. Wind was low. Few people to get in our way. With this being my first outing of the year and using my new Nikon D850, it was tough going. Having been off of photography for several months, my muscle memory wasn't good. Plus using a new camera added to my frustration. My friend was popping off his shutter and I was still setting up. Don't get me wrong, its a good problem to have.
I was also trying out some new techniques but finally gave up on those and went back to my normal methods. I need to get a better understanding of my camera to learn how it works.
But it was still a great day to get out with a friend and visit one of North Carolina's best waterfalls. Stayed tuned for more frequent blogs coming up.
