Once again, the western skies competed for attention during sunrise. Blessed to witness the beauty of this place when it’s quiet except for the birds. I even had a hummingbird bird trying to lure my attention away from the skies. + + + + + + + #godsartwork #godscreation #sunset_sunrise_beautiful #sunset #natgeolandscape #onlyinnorthcarolina #greettheoutdoors #blueridgemoments #naturenc #mountains #romanticasheville #discover #exploreboone #ncoutdoors #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #mountains #visitnc #landscapephotography #sunrise #scenicnc #celebratingnc #naturepics #northcarolina #mountains #itsbetterherethanthere #nature #naturephotography #trails #wncmountains #picoftheday 4 days ago
Perfect way to end my short hike back to the trailhead after a beautiful Rough Ridge sunrise. I wish I could capture all of the Rhododendrons blooming around the bridge though! + + + + + + #godscreation #landscapephotography #adventures #alltrails #ncoutdoors #naturalnorthcarolina #exploreboone #booneview #blueridgemountains #picoftheday #visitnc #blueridgemoments #ncoutdoorculture # #naturenc #appalachianmountains #scenicnc #nature #ashevilletrails #naturephotography #outdoors #hiking #celebratingnc #southernstatescollective #explore #trails #teamcanon 4 days ago
This morning’s hot, muggy run in Charlotte had me dreaming of actually feeling chilly while watching the sunrise before my Parkway run yesterday morning. + + + + + + + #godsartwork #godscreation #sunset_sunrise_beautiful #sunset #natgeolandscape #onlyinnorthcarolina #greettheoutdoors #blueridgemoments #naturenc #mountains #romanticasheville #discover #exploreboone #ncoutdoors #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #mountains #visitnc #landscapephotography #sunrise #scenicnc #celebratingnc #naturepics #northcarolina #mountains #itsbetterherethanthere #nature #naturephotography #trails #wncmountains #picoftheday 5 days ago
Thinking of a sunset a few weeks ago. It looked as though the clouds would be to thick to allow any sunlight to color the sky, then a tiny break in the cloud cover allowed for a few minutes of spectacular color. + + + + + + + #godsartwork #godscreation #sunset_sunrise_beautiful #sunset #natgeolandscape #onlyinnorthcarolina #greettheoutdoors #blueridgemoments #naturenc #mountains #romanticasheville #discover #exploreboone #ncoutdoors #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #mountains #visitnc #landscapephotography #sunrise #scenicnc #celebratingnc #naturepics #northcarolina #mountains #itsbetterherethanthere #nature #naturephotography #trails #wncmountains #picoftheday 5 days ago
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). I love watching the sunrise in solitude, but this was one of those sunrises I wanted to hear “Wow” from someone besides just me over and over again. + + + + + + + + #godsartwork #godscreation #sunset_sunrise_beautiful #sunset #natgeolandscape #onlyinnorthcarolina #greettheoutdoors #blueridgemoments #naturenc #mountains #romanticasheville #discover #exploreboone #ncoutdoors #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #mountains #visitnc #landscapephotography #sunrise #scenicnc #celebratingnc #naturepics #northcarolina #mountains #itsbetterherethanthere #nature #naturephotography #trails #wncmountains #picoftheday 6 days ago
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. Big bonus was being there alone😊 + + + + + + + + + #godsartwork #godscreation #sunset_sunrise_beautiful #sunset #natgeolandscape #onlyinnorthcarolina #greettheoutdoors #blueridgemoments #naturenc #mountains #romanticasheville #discover #exploreboone #ncoutdoors #northcarolina #blueridgemountains #mountains #visitnc #landscapephotography #sunrise #scenicnc #celebratingnc #naturepics #northcarolina #mountains #itsbetterherethanthere #nature #naturephotography #trails #wncmountains #picoftheday 6 days ago
