Blue Ridge Parkway – Craggy Gardens Overlook

Today I returned from a relaxing weekend with my best friend Carl.  He moved north of Asheville, NC only a few weeks ago, so it was great to see his now home and experience a weekend of true mountain life.  He lives only miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, so we did our fair share of shooting there on Friday.  The atmospherics were ever-changing and phenomenal, given the summer weather instability.  Fog was moving through the valleys all weekend, but by far the most amazing sky occurred Saturday night near Craggy Gardens.  This literally flashed in the blink of an eye and was gone before we knew it.  Enjoy!

    Great job on each, bud!! It was a great weekend and an amazing Saturday evening, laying witness to nature at its best on the parkway! Each image conveys the beauty of the evening – the color version accurately depicts the beauty unfolding; the b&w displaying the anger in the sky after the passing storms!
    Thank you for coming…it’s always a joy getting to spend time with you!!
