A couple of weeks ago we were treated to the Perseid Meteor Shower. As soon as I read that the conditions would be optimal for meteor viewing (no moon and no clouds), I knew exactly where I wanted to go.

This is something I’ve wanted to experience for a long time – Linville Falls in the snow and ice.

As we neared the Viaduct we noticed the stars were shining so we stopped for a little photo adventure. I wanted that quintessential view of the Viaduct at night. You know the shot- every photographer in the High Country has photographed it. Heck, I’ve photographed the Viaduct from this vantage point quite a few times.
