Pink sky at night (in this case, evening), sailors delight, pink sky at morn, sailors be warned. This common saying my dad told me as a kid, came to mind when on the drive back to #WakeForestNC from the #OuterBanks. A cotton candy display and a brilliant dusk to cap off a successful day trip. What was a threatening storm earlier became a dazzling neon greeting back to the mainland on #Highway64. ⁣ ⁣ As we chart our courses in life, we are eager for a sign. Jesus said that in such a perverse and adulterous generation, one will ask for signs, but none will be given them. I often think about the beforetime right when Jesus Christ shall appear. Will it be a thunderous shout or a soft exposure? A mere parting of the clouds like we usually think? God has placed signs in weather to give us a hint. Some claim He warns us through disasters. Others say it’s only chance. But, coincidence can’t go the distance as Our Lord. I would rather trust Him speaking, knowing He brought into existence weather patterns and characteristics. ⁣ ⁣ #OnlyinNorthCarolina do you get a little bit of both worlds. The barrier island of #NagsHead being drenched, #RoanokeIsland having a fresh rain, and the #InnerBanks of #NorthCarolina dried off with a blanket of pastel tint blazing the horizon. God does love us. He may chide for a second, but His Word and presence forever dwells. He is faithful, despite the forecast. ⁣ _______________________⁣⁣ #LandofAncientFirsts ⁣⁣ #NCFirstborn ⁣⁣ #MPope28 ⁣⁣ #MatthewPope28 9 hours ago by @landofancientfirsts

Sometimes I get done with a shoot, (just by myself or with Tyler) and I think I’ve got a ton of great stuff but when I sit down to look at them I realize that it’s mostly crap. Such a disappointing feeling.

So there I am waiting for a beautiful sunset off the Blue Ridge Parkway. During a lens change I happen to look down for just a moment and this is what I saw below my feet. The colors and design screamed such beauty at me and did I notice. Do you see it? How many times do we miss the little things around us, when we are so focused solely on the big obvious. 👁❤️🏔 #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemoments #pisgahnationalforest #ashevillenc #asheville #greatsmokymountains #naturalnorthcarolina #nc #brysoncity #ashevilletrails #visitasheville #romanticasheville #appalachian_explorers #smokymountains #brysoncity #nationalpark #blueridgefeature #nationalparkgeek #discover_carolinas #onlyinnorthcarolina #natgeolandscape #ashevilleadventures #romanticasheville #visitnc #visitasheville #haynow #landscapephotomag #maggievalley #appalachiantrail #appaloosa 16 hours ago by @carolinaphotoart

Peak 10/40 - Mt. Hallback . Completed 6.6.19 . Day 2, I gingerly stepped out of my Jeep as the sun was starting to come up. I originally planned to camp at commissary ridge, the closest backcountry camping spot to my car, but given the weather, I ended up riding out the whiteout conditions in the back of my Jeep, alone on top of Mt. Mitchell. 🤫 . It was around 6:00 AM and after walking around for a little bit, I decided to lay back down. It would have been easy to just drive home and save the other Black Mountain peaks for another trip. I could have picked any of the abundant excuses that were in my head. I decided to give my body a little more rest and then try to get started again. . I finally hit the trail at 9:30 AM. There are a total of 10 #SB6K peaks in the Black Mountain Range. I had bagged the 6 peaks north of Mt. Mitchell on the first day of the trip, but now it was time to attempt to bag the 3 peaks to the south. . I started at a very slow pace, I was definetly feeling the first day's hike. Mt. Hallback is a little over two miles from Mt. Mitchell and it took me about an hour to make it that distance. Now I had to bushwack up to the top. The line wasn't to difficult to track down and fortunately, this was a much easier bushwach than Gibbs Mountain. . After about 10 minutes, I was standing on top of my 10th peak of this challenge. In that moment, this trek felt exceedingly special.

Peak 10/40 - Mt. Hallback . Completed 6.6.19 . Day 2, I gingerly stepped out of my Jeep as the sun was starting to come up.

Mitchell. 🤫 . It was around 6:00 AM and after walking around for a little bit, I decided to lay back down. It would have been easy to just drive home and save the other Black Mountain peaks for another trip. I could have picked any of the abundant excuses that were in my head. I decided to give my body a little more rest and then try to get started again. . I finally hit the trail at 9:30 AM. There are a total of 10 #SB6K peaks in the Black Mountain Range. I had bagged the 6 peaks north of Mt. Mitchell on the first day of the trip, but now it was time to attempt to bag the 3 peaks to the south. . I started at a very slow pace, I was definetly feeling the first day's hike. Mt. Hallback is a little over two miles from Mt. Mitchell and it took me about an hour to make it that distance. Now I had to bushwack up to the top. The line wasn't to difficult to track down and fortunately, this was a much easier bushwach than Gibbs Mountain. .

#♻️ @wildwoodblessing. This shot reminds me of walking out on a boardwalk at the beach, maybe the roar of the winds this morning reminded me of crashing waves on the shore. Later I’ll post what was happening behind me. Crazy clouds and winds made for a very dynamic sunrise landscape.

Day 2 of the vacay- we went and saw A LOT. Like 7 places and then got to Nashville at 2:30AM but we lost an hour so it was really 3:30AM in our heads and boy could we feel it. But one of the many places we went was this waterfall. 1. So many people, like literal buses. 2. The rainbow! It was precious. Such a good waterfall but the amount of people made it really hard to enjoy. Still worth the visit if you pass it, you might just get a random stranger as your subject, just like I did. 1 day ago by @kaitlynnrost
I snapped this Bald Eagle back on July 2nd, in Lake Junaluska, NC. I'm seeing less and less of these amazing birds, I sure hope they make the lake their permanent home, so they can have more young ones next year. #eagle #baldeagle #bird #birds #birdsofprey #birdphotography #photography #photographer #northcarolina #onlyinnorthcarolina #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #ornathology #northcarolinaphotography #northcarolinaphotographer #lakejunaluska #waynesvillenc #maggievalley #americanbaldeagle #usa #🇺🇸 #visitnc #visitncsmokies #america #american 1 day ago by @robertjwagnerphotography

“Sunday's sunrise from Clingmans Dome. Between periods of being completely socked in, the clouds would thin out and we'd have this view for maybe 30 seconds, then roll back in, totally blocking our view of the sun-kissed clouds. One of the best sunrises I've witnessed to date.” @aozphotos. #greatsmokies #gsmnp #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #smokymountains #naturalnorthcarolina #ncmountains #greatsmokymountains #beautifuldestinations #visitnc #appalachian_explorers #clingmansdome #sltravels #greatsmokeymountains #romanticasheville #onlyinnorthcarolina #ourstatemag #ourstate #discover_carolinas #adventureappalachia #wnc #outaboutnc #explorecarolina #wnc #friendsofthesmokies #ashevilletrails #ncoutdoors #open828 #ncoutdoor_inc #travelentrepreneur ***Use the hashtag #brysoncity for a chance to be featured on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

I have been in some very challenging backpacking situations, but this was without a doubt one of the toughest. . I stood on the top of Gibbs Mountain wishing I could take a break, but I knew I had to keep moving. I had been wet before I started the bushwack up to the summit, but now I was absolutely drenched thanks to the thick vegetation. . Most people associate hypothermia with winter, but the risk is still there in the summer. During wet and windy conditions, hypothermia can strike at temperatures up to 60 degrees and the temperature that day never got over the mid 50's. . As I made my way south, the rain and wind were relentless. I was beat and struggling to find motivation. My usual strong hiking pace slowed to a crawl and I hadn't been able to take a long break or eat anything substantial the entire day. At this point, if I stopped longer than a couple minutes, I would start shivering. At least that was good motivation to keep moving. . If you've never heard of the quote, "Your body can stand almost anything - It's your mind you have to convince," I can assure you its true. I had to focus on something positive so I thought about one of my favorite quotes from Rocky. . "Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward." . That quote felt extra appropriate for the situation I was in. Mother Nature had beaten me to my knees, but she was not going to keep me there. No matter how many times I got knocked down, and it was a lot, I was going to get back up. I was going to keep moving forward even if I had to take it inch by inch. .

I’ve always loved this rock formation on Rough Ridge, and yesterday morning I appreciated even more as I used it as a partial barrier from the insane winds allowing me to take snaps of the clouds spilling over Grandfather Mountain.

(Be sure to swipe. ) While watching the sunrise from Rough Ridge I turned around and saw the most unbelievable rainbow colored clouds spilling over Grandfather Mountain and the Linn Cove Viaduct. The colors and formations changed every few seconds. With the insane winds it was difficult to even hold still to take some of the shots. I did a short video near the end (in my story).
