Fall spectacular


Sampson photo club captures splendor of western NC — and beyond

The water rushes across rocks along the scenic Pearson Falls trails that lead to the beautiful waterfall less than a mile from the area’s entrance. Photographer Betty Puryear captured white water, one of the lessons she learned in her Shutterbugs III class at Sampson Community College.

Jump Off Rock in Hendersonville gives visitors a breathtaking view of the city below and the mountains in the foreground, one of photographer Barbara Shook’s favorite spots to take


Kelly Jones got up close and personal with this leaf, showing its detail and its vibrant color.


At Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest Cindy Ivey was able to slow the shutter speed enough to get what photographers like to call ‘white water’ cascading nearly like glass down the fall. The beauty of the fall leaves serves as an autumn frame to the falls.


Paula Carter was able to get double the color as she caught the reds, greens and oranges of a fall day and its reflection in the pond below.


Kathleen Gancer, who just completed her second photography course at SCC, took her first waterfall photograph at Pearson Falls, capturing the ‘white water’ that photographers long to get in their shots.


Along the Person Falls trail, Sebrinia Johnson found this scenic view of water rolling lazily across rock formations along a stream.


Water that nearly looks as smooth as silk as seen through the camera lens - and the eye - of photographer Donna Banks.
