Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

The Seven Sisters Range of the Black Mountains in North Carolina is part of the Appalachian Mountains. Mt. Mitchell, though not seen here , is just to the left of this photo. It is the highest peak east of the MIssissippi River (6684’) and is accessible from the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is a state park there with a short trail to an observation tower on top of the mountain.
This view is from Mt Mitchell Golf Course in late afternoon .

    Love everything about this- the background, the fantastic colours and light- stunning work Jane!!

  • Thank you, naturelover. I have played this golf course though not this time of year (closed for winter). I think every fairway has an awesome view of the surrounding mountains.

    When I saw your title, “Seven Sisters” I was thinking of the wild roses by that name. However, this beautiful picture did not disappoint when I realized I was wrong about the roses.l

  • I didn’t realize there were wild roses called “Seven Sisters.” Interesting. Your part of the country has much higher mountains and I think it is easier to find vista shots there than in these mountains. Thanks for your compliment!

    Just beautiful, Jane! Love the composition!

  • Thank you, mlou. If I had had my golf clubs with me, I would have had the entire course to myself! (:

    Great photo! I really like the lighting.

  • Thank you, Ray4cam. This was taken late in the afternoon. I would like to have gotten Mt MItchell in the photo but I would have been shooting into the sun. WIll try to get up there and take more photos in the morning light.
