    ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! MANY TIMES I HAVE READ ABOUT THE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS,BUT NEVER DID I PICTURE THEM TO BE THIS VAST OR BEAUTIFUL. WELL DONE JANE.

  • Thank you Diane. It is a lovely drive through the NC and VA mountains. No commercial vehicles or bill boards and 45 mph max speed limit-so it is definitely designed for enjoying the scenery.

    Love the light breaking through the clouds hitting the valley. The beauty of this is not only that light but the color as well and the vastness of the shot. Lovely work! Michael

  • Thank you very much Michael. The light with the clouds and shadows was very dramatic and interesting that evening.
