I took these last week when the snow was still on the ground but it was late afternoon and the gorge was in shadow. The pictures came out with a blue hue that I did not like as well as making them black and white.
The Broad River tumbles through Hickory Nut Gap and the gorge, dropping a thousand feet or more into the towns of Bat Cave and Chimney Rock emptying into Lake Lure.
The rim of the gorge rises high above and from below I got a fantastic view of Hicky Nut Falls frozen on the walls of the cliffs. Sorry about the blur - my tiny camera doesn't do well with zoom photos. The good news is that I got a Cannon Rebel and will soon be able to take much better photos!
Hope you enjoyed my foray into Black and White!
