Background On This Photograph

On an early spring morning, camera strapped securely on my back, I took a hike on the new Carson Creek Trail. The cool morning air was still, clean, and fresh; the trail was coming alive with the wildflowers of spring, small and delicate, I descended. Listening, the sounds of the water below grew louder as I traversed down the many switchbacks, anticipation heightening my desire to photograph one of the many cascading falls on one of the most beautiful stretches of trail in NC., it was wonderful! - Paula Swartz
