This is from my North Carolina mountains visit last October, the composition was processed shortly after and ready to publish, but was forgotten. Fortunately, I found it while planning my 2021 trip – coming up next week. It was captured from the Fryingpan Mountain Lookout Tower near Pisgah Mountain on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The tower’s stairwell was blocked at the base, but I was able to squeeze through and overcome my fear of heights to climb to just under the top platform. I was rewarded with an amazing South Fork Mills River Valley landscape and dramatic light!
