Lost and Found Landscape

South Fork Mills River Valley Composition 1

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!

Cheers,

These two curious horses cooperated with my attempt to compose and interesting photo during an expedition of the North Fork New River area of Ashe County, North Carolina. I shot this at 110 mm with my Nikkor Z 70-200mm f2.8 lens.
