A photo of Blowing Rock itself. Taken as an HDR to give the clouds a greater emphasis.
Blowing Rock - Through the Trees
The first photo I took at Blowing Rock.
Blowing Rock - The Top
It seems to have become a thing to take some photos of my shoes in places I go...this time it's at the top of Blowing Rock
Blowing Rock - What a house!
Oh what a view this house would have. Dream house number 1
Blowing Rock - View from the patform
Another HDR to bring out the clouds.
Blowing Rock - Telescope
Who needs a telescope when you have a nice camera.
Blowing Rock - Visitors Centre
I just quite liked how the red doors gave a contrast to all the green around it.
I particularly liked the light that was hitting the bark on the tree so whilst it might be odd to have the bark as focal point, I felt it was too good a texture to miss.
Bass Lake - Lillies
With the sun setting it hit the lake nicely lighting up the lillies.
Bass Lake - Ugly Gosling?
There were quite a few geese around with their little ones following them around. A few weeks early would have been better.
Drove up to Cone Manor and really liked the architecture of the building.
Blue Ridge Parkway - Overlook
With the sun setting, it was creating great lights and shadows on the clouds and the trees below.
