A view of the North Carolina Blue Ridge mountains from Lake Tahoma near the town of Marion. THe snow covered peaks in the upper left hand corner are the Seven Sisters and Mt. Mitchell.
THe lake was built in the 1920s real estate “boom” as a luxury development. The old building on the lake was a casino where well known bands performed regularly for dances. The 1929 stock market crash ended the development. Now the lake is owned by current property owners. THe casino has been renovated and is used for private special events.

    Gorgeous mountains and a perfect reflection! Instant favorite!

  • Thank you, CraigsMom. THe old building has always fascinated me. The road around the lake is gated so I wasn’t able to get as close to it as I would have liked. I stopped on the main road and walked a little way to get this photo.

    beautiful image, love the building also.

  • THank you bubbleblue. I have always been fascinated with the old building. It is in the middle of the lake with a long bridge ramp going out to it. Is difficult to find a good place to take a photo of it though as most of the roads around the lake are gated.

    Wonderful reflections in this nearly surreal landscape. Gorgeous photography.

  • Thank you, Kurt! I thought the clouds and lighting were particularly interesting and I have always been fascinated with the old round building. You have some lovely landscapes in your area!

    This is absolutely beautiful Jane. It is like a fairy book land off in the distance. The reflection is gorgeous. Favorite.

    Beautiful view Jane!

  • Thank you very much AnaCB! Unfortunately, there aren’t many places along the road to get a good view of the old casino. I would like to have gotten a little closer to it.
