Falls Lake

Falls Lake State Recreation Area

Falls Lake State Recre­ation Area in Wake For­est pro­vides a stun­ning nat­ur­al back­drop for any kind of por­trait. Every per­son and every pho­to shoot is dif­fer­ent, but there is no sub­sti­tute for a beau­ti­ful glow­ing lake and bril­liant green­ery in the back­ground. New Light Road and Creed­mor Road are two places around the park that I enjoy tak­ing pic­tures around. It’s actu­al­ly just a very short dri­ve away from the city, and always proves to be a nice and peace­ful escape from the noise and fast pace of urban Raleigh.

Many dif­fer­ent vari­eties of plants and ani­mals can be found through­out the park, and on a nice day, you can enjoy swim­ming, boat­ing or camp­ing on the water, and you can also hike along a stretch of the Moun­tains-to-Sea Trail.

The Falls Lake Project was com­plet­ed in 1981 for the pur­pose of pro­vid­ing a source of water and con­trol­ling flood­ing in the Raleigh area. The lake itself is 12,000 acres and the park con­tains 26,000 acres of beau­ti­ful scenery to pho­to­graph and enjoy.
