A Lonely Tree at the Crest

The hills around Thekkady, Kerala provide spectacular views of the landscape and sunsets. Will be posting views from these hills in the next few weeks.

Here is an image of a lonely tree at the crest of the brown mountain with greenery in the foreground and white clouds against a blue sky in the background.

Lake Lure

Lake Lure as viewed from Chimney Rock, North Carolina. The lake is approximately 720 acres, with about 21 miles of shoreline with great stretches of water, three long bays, an island of seven acres and many small bays and inlets with a background of tree-clad hills and mountains.

Can you visualize a face of a sleeping man? Well, this is Grandfather Mountain, NC.  It was named “Grandfather” by pioneers who recognized the face of an old man in one of the cliffs. Many vantage points reveal different faces, so there is no one official profile of the mountain, but the most popular can be seen from the community of Foscoe, seven miles north of Linville and 10 miles south of Boone on N.C. 105.
