I found out why this is called Dry Falls. While shooting this particular waterfall, in North Carolina, it started raining hard. I had walked from the car without a rain jacket, but that didn\’t pose to serious a problem for me and my camera. This waterfall flows from a shelf that overhangs the rest of the cliff on which it resides. By standing behind the waterfall, under the shelf, I remained out of the rain and almost completely dry. That is until I had to return to the car and leave the protective confines of the waterfall.
