It must be a curse! Every time I attempt to fly out of Nashville Mother Nature throws me a curve ball. This weekend Nashville was under a deluge of rains with major flooding in and around the city and surrounding areas. Cars and streets were totally underwater and even a portion of a building was seen floating down I-24. The only thing missing were animals pairing up two by two.
While the weekend had it’s major stumbling blocks, I was presented with the opportunity of a couple of days to spare last week. So I accepted an offer to take a road trip from Raleigh, NC home to Huntsville, AL with one of me “road tripping photo buddies”. On the way south we stopped in Flat Rock, NC to spend our first night and part of the next day with a good friend of mine who is the corporate sales director for Highland Lake Inn (http://www.hlinn.com). It is a beautiful rustic resort nestled in the woods south of Asheville, NC. Not only is it rich with history and stunning scenic locations but they are also blessed with an exceptional culinary staff. After the breakfast and lunch we had, I can speak from experience.
After touring the property, shooting images for their website and promotional use, we were taken to see one of the many sites within close driving distance to the resort, Triple Falls. The view of the canyon with the three large cascading waterfalls atop one another literally took my breath away. Well, actually if the truth be known, it was the walk up the trail to our photographic vantage point that took my breath away.
With all that has gone on this past week, the visit to Highland Lake Inn was a welcomed escape. I leave you with an infrared view of Triple Falls.
I can only wish you the best for the upcoming week. If you find yourself in need of stock images, corporate art or a photographer for an upcoming assignment I am just a phone call away.
