Waterfalls of Western
Photography by Robert W.
Waterfalls are magically attractive. They inspire awe and
fascination by their power, beauty, and sometimes surprising gentleness. My experiences in finding and
photographing these waterfalls has given me a special appreciation for this beautiful land here in
You can see all the waterfalls (so
far) from the left column page menu selections. The waterfalls are listed in alphabetical order on
the menu bar.
I set out just to find and
photograph these waterfalls, but along the way, I found so much more - both in the surroundings of the country
during my hikes and the positive effects it lent to my own attitude of living. There's an old
addage around here that goes: "altitude affects attitude" - and that's the truth! The forests,
wildlife, flowers, vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and of course - the magical waterfalls.
I began this web site as a way to
share my experiences in finding and photographing the waterfalls of Western North Carolina. It is still a
work in progress! There will be many more waterfalls to be listed in the future - so if you like this
presentation, please bookmark this site for future reference and come back often because I'll be adding more
waterfalls photos as they are realized.
you enjoy the photos. I enjoyed taking them and there's an adventure story behind each and every one of
them. My favorite waterfalls so far are White Owl Falls and Crabtree Falls. My most memorable experience was the dangerous and strenuous climb into
and out of the steep rocky gorge to photograph Yellowstone Falls.
All the photographs can be purchased
in 8" x 10" archival quality high resolution prints with double white mats in an 11" x 14"
Your support will be greatly
appreciated to help me continue this quest. I am not a professional photographer - I am just an amateur
with a passion for photographing this magnificient land of Appalachia.

I want to thank Kevin Adams for his
book, North Carolina Waterfalls - A hiking and photography guide.
My wife bought me his book (
the 1st edition) several years ago as a birthday present. Soon afterward, I took off one early morning
with all my camera gear to find and photograph a waterfall. I've been hooked ever since. Thank
you Helen and Kevin. Your book has been responsible for many unforgettable experiences in
these Appalachian mountains. I highly recommend his book to anyone interested in finding these
waterfalls in North Carolina for themselves.
Enjoy and please come back soon.
