I spent a night and 2 days in Highlands, NC, thanks to my step-mom, who had rented a cabin up there. I thoroughly enjoyed my time up there. My father and I tooled around, taking in the sights and hiking Whiteside Mountain. I think I we were in Highlands at the absolute peak of the Autumn colors. Dry Falls allows viewers to actually walk behind the waterfall, and was featured in the movie, Last of the Mohicans.
I am loving the Possible Perception of a Possible Place that came out of this photograph. The star in the center pointing at the bright fall colors in half circles on the edges, its asymmetry, which one has to look closely to detect. Bold and beautiful, yet subtle.
