Blue Ridge Parkway Photography.

22 Mar

As my friends and I were driving along the curvy mountain roads of the Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday, I made the comment that the Blue Ridge Parkway isn’t the type of place you can see too many times. Each time I decide to go to the parkway, I feel a different vibe. Whether it’s peaceful, calm, quiet, happy, contemplative…’s a place I go to think. Sitting out looking at the beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, I’m reminded just how close beauty can be found. In a world full of pain and hardships, there are places along the Blue Ridge Parkway that becon me….urging me to come sit a while on the grass and look out towards the pure awe of nature. I’d like to share a few photos that I captured yesterday, plus one of me and my friends.

We also stayed on the Parkway to see the sunset because I had always wanted to see the sun set over the Blue Ridges since I love mountains and sunset photography, so it seemed like the perfect match. My favorite sunset shot is below. There are more that I’ll share with you during tomorrow’s Photo Friday, so come back soon! πŸ™‚

My favorite shot of the day.

This is my favorite shot due to the colors and the “waves” of clouds that span out from all the colors. I just can never get tired of views like this!

    Such peaceful and contemplative sights. You can really lose track of time in such places, but come away feeling as if you’ve been rejuvenated.

    Still enjoy your expressive smile.

    I never really took a drive out there, but they remind me a lot of home.

      I love it. Speaking of your home, I need to make the trek up to New Hampshire at some point, haha! πŸ™‚

    Great photos. It reminds me to take some photos of our mountain ranges here in Seattle.

      I’d love to see how the mountain ranges in Seattle look in comparison to the ones here in North Carolina.

    Lovely! I live in the backwater in California, and grateful that I do. The Cascades are pretty magestic. Never been to N. Carolina, but that’s where my family is from way back.

      I’ve never seen the Cascades, but I’ve always wanted to. Maybe one day.

    It gives a light natural vintage feeling. I like it.

    You can be a beginner at photography and the mountains will make you look like a pro. They are a never ending plethora of natural beauty. Very pretty.
