North Carolina is a beautiful state, and of course, thousands of photographers attempt to capture that beauty on a daily basis. From dramatic waterfalls, quiet beaches, and peaceful countryside, it takes more than a good eye to photograph the total essence of place that is North Carolina.
Each day, we get a number of beautiful photographs posted to the

This bridge crosses Wilson Creek in its head water, a boulder strewn creek bed with many cascades as it plunges into Pisgah National Forest. The foliage is beginning in earnest along the streams an ridges at the higher elevations with an explosion of color to show soon across western North Carolina..." -Danny Richard Buxton.
