Stunning photographs of the grandchildren at Dry Falls (first of the Nikon DSLR images)

Upper Cullasaja Falls

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
    let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
    let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.

Psalm 96:11-12
at Dry Falls

Home again, working at my desktop iMac computer, I can finally begin to process some of the images from my Nikon DSLR. Generally, the iPhone SE does a great job taking photographs, but there is still something about shooting with a traditional camera with a good lens that is irreplaceable for certain shots.

So today I’m going to highlight a series of pictures taken around Dry Falls.

The children, already captivated by their first look at the mountains, were pretty much blown away by their first waterfall. Dry Falls, also known as Upper Cullasaja Falls, is a 65-foot waterfall located in the Nantahala National Forest.

Making a Splash!

Not exactly dry, the falls does afford the unique opportunity to walk behind the water on a clear, firm, walkable path. David and Beks were very excited.

Rebekah and I have been to Dry Falls before, but this time the water volume seemed more significant, and the lighting (I don’t know if it was the time of day or the particular mixture of clouds and sunshine…) worked to a uniquely dramatic effect.

So here are a few of the best photographs. Pause long enough on each one to really feel the impact of the amazing genius of creation, and by implication the amazing genius of The Creator. I have said it before and I am sure I will say it again: North Carolina is a spectacularly beautiful state.

Standing in awe, and grateful – DEREK
