Sometimes landscapes take time and planning, coming back to a location over and over again to get different light. Even different times of the year can really make a completely new look to the same area. Other times you just end up in the right spot at the right time and all you need to do is be ready to take it.
Sunset over White Sands. Everything is coming up Pastel.
The sun is starting to burn off the fog on this edge of Cades Cove.
We wandered along the Blueridge all day Saturday, grabbed a bite to eat in Waynesville before attempting to get to one of the good overlooks before sunset. Well worth the drive and the wait since you never know what you are going to see as the weather changes pretty much everytime you turn around.
The sun just coming up and the mists in the morning are flowing like a slow motion river through the valleys along the Blueridge Mountains.
Clouds on the horizon helped to give us some visible breaks in the sunbeams across the ridges of those Blueridge Mountains.
Even after you leave the Smoky Mountains National Park you can find some great views on the way home along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The view as the sun goes down on Big Pine Key
snowy desert landscape in Bryce Canyon, Utah.
6 shot panorama from a pretty nice open stop on the Blueridge parkway. Definitely best viewed as large (and long) as you can.
Quick stop along one of the backroads on the way home.
Fun day along the blueridge ending in a pretty fantastic sunset. The temperature was dropping pretty quickly, a bit of mist rising and the sun setting.....in the end, I think a perfect combo.
Cropped from a single shot from the Sony A7RII and 16-35 f4. Hitting the end of the shots from our last trip to the Smoky's off to the coast for some more birds and gators and some Kayaking fun.
Beautiful last morning of camping for the year. Herb lake in Haliburton Highlands Water trails on a beautiful autumn morning.
In this case the clouds along the valley. Telephoto Landscapes from the Blueridge Parkway. Best viewed as large as possible.
Yesterday was a great day for wandering along the Blueridge Parkway down to the Smoky Mountains and back home. Here is one of the last moments of sunlight across the Blueridge Mountains before the long dark drive home.
We have had a good number of thunderstorms pass through this spring, each one leaves a different misty view over the mountains.
Long glass gives you a narrow view across ridges and valleys on a lovely evening sunset.
Subtle shades and many shadows as the sun goes down across the mountains while standing in White Sand National Monument.
