May 7, 2013. Local outdoor/adventure photographer Lynn Willis captured some breathtaking images of the Linville Gorge during flood stage Monday night.
“I was on edge for this one, kind of the same feeling when hanging from a rope taking photos of climbers,” Willis said in an email. “It was an intense experience while setup two feet from the raging torrent, hanging out on top of a boulder well into the night.”
He said the spray from the crashing river filled up the entire basin and required many swipes of the camera lens.
