Check out some of my larger canvas prints up at The Collider, in downtown Asheville ( @thecollider01 ). Included are a 15 x 90 #triptych of #blueridgeparkway #sunrise , as well as a God-light fall shot of #lookingglassrock (one of my favs). Both are for sale at The Collider, or as always just DM me if interested. #fineartphotography #artforsale #supportlocalartists #photographyforsale #ashevillenc #visitasheville #828isgreat. . . . . . 15 hours ago by @ecoclinephotography

Just a friendly reminder that the best way to escape this July heat is to grab a backpack & head for the higher elevations.

If we're not following our dreams, what are we really doing with our time here? I'm equal parts excited and scared to announce I'm starting a new business! @wncphototours provides private photography lessons & tours in the Asheville area. I've been working hard on this over the past year so it makes me really happy to finally have the website up and running. I plan to devote most of my time and energy to this venture moving forward, taking it quite seriously. I will not make it through the first year without LOTS of help! Please take a second to 'like' my new Facebook page tagged above and please tell anyone who you think might be interested in this sort of thing! I'll be sharing all of my new photos exclusively through my @wncphototours Facebook and Instagram accounts, so if you enjoy my photography be sure to follow along ❤️ Anyone interested in booking a tour can do so directly through my website! 18 hours ago by @dawnfirephotography

Fairly often I see posts about how folks came to love the outdoors. Many people get their start hiking and camping at a young age, a passion passed down from a parent. I grew up in a rural area, but my parents aren’t and never have been hikers or campers. I didn’t go on my first hike until I was 21 years old. But, how cool is it that I get to do a little reverse-parenting and share my passion for hiking with my mom? ——— How did you develop a love of the outdoors? I’d love to hear your stories. ——— 📷 of @bennett5123 on our first extended hiking/camping trip two weeks ago. 📍this is Tutelo land . . . . . #AppalachianTrail #trektheAT #virginiaisformountainlovers #mcafeeknob #at2019 #girlswhohike #allwomenalltrails #hikelikeagirl #adventurelikeagirl #optoutside #forceofnature #sweatydirtyhappy #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #womenwhohike #sheexplores #wildeast #myblueridge #peoplewhohike #withguthook #georgiatomaine #nationalforests #publiclandowner #mypubliclands #takemebackpacking #getyourassintonature #outtherepodcast #gooutsideandplay #appalachianhikers 1 day ago by @adventurelikeagirl

After nine miles of off-trail bushwhack and creekwhackin' goodness, we finally reached our goal: Mitchell Falls. It is rich in history, marking the tragic place of Elisha Mitchell's death. Mitchell was known for bringing the spotlight on Mount Mitchell as the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. When he returned to the mountain to verify his findings, he tragically slipped at the top of the waterfall to his death. The waterfall was named for Mitchell, honoring his work and legacy. (*visited with permission) NOTE: The waterfall is located on private property and mostly off-trail within rugged and steep terrain, so don't attempt this hike unless you gain permission and go with someone experienced. . . . . #blackmountaincresttrail #pisgahnationalforest #mountmitchell #waterfall #elishamitchell #trail #bushwhack #blueridgemountains #visitnc #ourstatemag #elishamitchell #mitchellfalls #blueridgeoutdoors #itsamazingoutthere #myblueridge #blueridgecountry #828isgreat #norcak #findyourpark #usinterior #recreationgov #ashevilletrails #visitasheville #livewithoutlimits #teamcanon #adventurephotographer #hiking #wbtvandme #huffpostgram #gooutsideandplay #longexposure 2 days ago by @cathyandersonphoto

#WATERFALLWEDNESDAY ———————————— I’ll be the first to admit that I used to be one of those hikers who bailed at the first sign of inclement weather. Cloudy skies and a chance of rain would be just enough of an excuse to stay indoors and be lazy. I’m not sure when it happened, but somewhere along the way I decided to stop making excuses and go anyway. That’s when I learned: {Rain makes for the most impressive waterfalls, and cloudy skies lend themselves to the most spectacular sunsets} ——— Do you hike even when the weather isn’t great?

I staked out my spot and waited for the moonrise. A perfect scenario would have been a clear horizon so that I could get a shot of the dim moon against the mountains with landscape features visible in the shot. I was hopeful because last time I viewed the moonrise from here, it looked similarly hazy in the distance, but the moon cut through really clearly. No such luck this time, though. By the time it got above the cloud cover, it was high and bright and therefore apt to wash out against the dark horizon. Not crazy about any of these pictures, but it was still a nice sight in person. 🤷‍♂️ #shortoffmountain #mountainstoseatrail #linvillegorge #linvillegorgeous #gayoutdoors #outsidewithpride #linvillegorgewilderness #hikenc #hikingaddict #hikertrash #nc100miles #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #ncoutdoors #nchiking #myblueridge #fullbuckmoon #lunarphotography #fullmoonrising #moonrise 2 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Went up Shortoff on the MST yesterday evening to just past the Pond with the intention of observing/photographing the full Buck Moon rising over the Catawba Valley on my way back down. Low cloud cover kind of sabotaged that, but I did get some shots of other cool stuff, and I got a good spot of cardio in by pushing myself to make <20 min. miles up the hill in the 90° heat and humidity.

A 12 shot blend of the magnificent Upper Catawba Falls. I really wanted to show the detail in the rocks and all the green moss so I decided to get close and use my 35mm @zeisscameralenses to stack the images.

Excited that I get to see both these guys in a week! A mountain retreat at 10K ft unplugged with some Kubotas is definitely one of my happy places. Also, looking forward to more family sessions this fall!

Hike 38/52 #LTC Lookout Tower 13/21 #WC100 Waterfall 20/100 Mile 177.2/300 Elevation gain 403ft Yesterday it actually did rain all day - the weatherman finally got it right 😂. I went out in search of another waterfall and #firetower to check off my #carolinamountainclub challenge lists. The first stop was Indian Creek Falls in #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark (swipe for photo). We also passed Tom Branch Falls on the way, and about 283,647 tourists headed out for tubing down Deep Creek. ——— The second stop was Barnett Knob tower off the #blueridgeparkway. This tower is unique in that instead of a live-in cab like many of the towers in the area, there was a small cabin at the base for the lookout to live in. Rain and fog blocked any real views, but the hike was still absolutely worth it. ——— 📍this is Tsalaguwetiyi land . . . . . #nationalforestweek #GSMNP #52hikechallenge #wildeast #southernappalachia #myblueridge #publiclandowner #mypubliclands #828isgreat #WNC #ashevilletrails #optoutside #outtherepodcast #gooutsideandplay #sweatydirtyhappy #forceofnature #girlswhohike #allwomenalltrails #hikelikeagirl #adventurelikeagirl #fatgirlshiking #fatandoutdoorsy #takingupspaceoutdoors #towerchasing 4 days ago by @adventurelikeagirl

{in bloom}. 14/50 on my bucket list. Some days you’re just lucky. This was one of those days and it turned out to be an incredible experience. It could’ve rained, it could’ve been too late in the season for the blooms, the lake could’ve been too crowded.

Pro tip: visit popular waterfalls right before a thunderstorm. The crowds are likely to be smaller & the cloud cover will give you nice, even light. Extra mega super pro tip: forget to grab your tripod; then you get to look like a total nerd burger trying to balance & level your camera using rocks and sticks. ________________________________ #trailchat #BPmag #liveyouradventure #theblueridgers #makemomentshappen #sonyalpha #findwhatmovesyou #myblueridge #ashevilletrails #ncoutdoor_inc #appalachian_explorers #booneview #explorecarolina #sonya7r #ncoutdoors #bealpha #wereoutthere #romanticasheville #visitnc #visitsmokies #828isgreat #adventureasheville #brysoncity #ncoutdoors #explorenc #myblueridge #mysouthernliving #waterfallchaser #waterfallhike 5 days ago by @bradleynashburgess

I set out in @greatsmokynps near #Gatlinburg a few days ago to shoot along the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River in hopes of a nice little cascade and some good light. This one reminds me of the days when I first began shooting with a DSLR camera, driving over 200 miles from my then home in Atlanta so I could indulge in my newfound passion. 😊 Speaking of Tennessee!

A good guide is going to know exactly what flowers are blooming at which elevations - providing photographers with a good foreground for their compositions. Golden rods such as the ones in this photo bloom in late summer at the higher elevations. Right now the flowers to seek are rosebay rhododendrons and turk cap lilies 1 week ago by @wncphototours
