Linville Falls North Carolina - Rugged Country

Linville Falls is actually 2 falls, the upper falls, which is split by a rock island and the lower falls where the water drops through the rocks to pool before plunging about 250 feet into the gorge created by thousands of years of guiding the water of the Linville River. The shear rock wall in the image is one wall of a 700 foot deep gorge, cut by the work required to guide this water over time. The image was created using a Canon 5D Mk3 with an ISO of 100 and a Canon 28-135 lens at 38mm, 1/8 sec, f/22, LR, Perfect Effects.
