With autumn fast approaching I began trying to plan a short trip to visit and shoot as many locations with the fall color as I possibly could in a few short days. I settled on a stretch in North Carolina from Rosman to Highlands to Cherokee and into the Smoky Mountain National Park.
Traveling from Atlanta we went through South Carolina and near Rosman, our first stop was at Eastatoe Falls. This is a very interesting falls as it is literally in someone’s back yard. You pull into their drive way and there is a sign directing you to parking behind the owner’s home. As you exit the car you can already here the roar of the falls and it is just a short walk back to the falls. When we arrived the sun was still above the falls but we used this to our advantage and included the sun to help add interest above the falls. Furthermore the light really helped to pop the fall colors of the leaves on the trees high above the falls. The fallen leaves sitting on the rocks surrounding the falls really helped cap off the autumn feel.
