Rural Beauty of NC – Grandfather Mountain

Grandfather Mountain is an iconic peak 75 miles north of Asheville, North Carolina. The area is known for its incredible vistas and unmatched ecological diversity. The area is called Grandfather Mountain because of early pioneers who recognized “the face” of an old man on one of the cliffs. Can you see it?

Reflections – in Landscape

The wonderful thing about using reflections when taking photos is that they can completely alter the image from something fairly straightforward to something richer or abstract or otherwise more artistic. Here is a reflection of the landscape at sunset in a small body of water.

Clouds – Striking Formations

Cloudscape photography is photography of clouds or sky. The sky is the single most abstract and dynamic canvas that a photographer has at his disposal. It is an endless source of inspiration that can change a boring photo into one of tremendous interest. Clouds can really either dominate an image or they can enhance the background.

Will be posting this week images of clouds as the dominant feature. Here is one with striking cloud formations in the blue sky.
