*I want to take a moment to say thank you for all the wonderfully descriptive comments that you folks have taken the time to leave me. It’s like writing the music to a song and having people add their own words. And I love what others see in my work… especially this image.

Taken at the break of dawn in the high country mountains of Mount Rogers National Forest & State Park in Smyth Co., Va. & Grayson Co., Va. at the www.chstudios.net. We take this trip every year in the Autumn starting out here and traveling through the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    I chose this photo for both its technical merrit and for how well it represents what the group is about and what I like seeing submitted.

  • I thank you, too! I have a great passion for the Appal Mountains. Most of my work is done in oils, sketches, watercolor but I do my reference work with my camera. I live deep in the Appalachian Mountain Forest and have, over the years, kept photographic and artistic documentation of this world around me. Thank you again for featuring my work. I am so pleased you like it.

  • You welcome and thank you! I’m so honored with this feature. I have a great love and passion for the Appalachian Mountains. I favor this image because it’s timeless …reminding me of what things may have been like hundreds of years ago.

    this is so beautiful. Soft, serene and atmospheric. Well done on a great shot.

  • That’s so interesting that you should say this… Because this is how I felt in the moments I was taking these shots. It was almost dreamy. I love these types of days! Thank you, Felicity! And I’m thrilled you’ve added it as a favorite.
