Some days I am thankful for cold, rainy mornings when there's nothing better to do that take a spin through the archives! Here's one that I overlooked - a gorgeous sunset up at the Cowee Mountains Overlook.

I'm with +David Pilasky on this one +Kevin Childress.  The pastel colors are wonderful and the layering reveals the great depth of the vista.  Thanks for sharing with the Landscape Photography Community.

Yates Mill, Ca. 1756 - Raleigh, NC

12-panel panorama shot in portrait orientation. And this copy of the mill photo grew clouds. How odd!

Thanks for the tip, +Pamela McClure , but I'm not sure I'd be able to make it back to Raleigh to deliver the print.

I was cleaning out a couple working files this morning and found another little gem from my last trip into the Shining Rock Wilderness - another gorgeous small waterfall along the West Fork Pigeon River. This is a place that just keeps on giving!

Thanks a bunch, +David Brown . The panorama worked better here than I anticipated. The 12 panels created a huge palette to work with so I cropped it to a smaller 3:2 and still kept something like a 77MP file! 

Yes, indeed, +Pamela McClure  - the clouds are very mysterious! (( I keep quite a collection of clouds on hand for just such an occasion ))   But no, there really weren't any step ladders involved. I actually had +David Brown carry me around on his shoulders for the extra height!  :)

Story

I am not a professional photographer, but I am damned professional about my photography.
Introduction
I am a North Carolina native, photographer, hiker, backpacker,  and paddler. 

My primary interests in photography are in landscapes, seascapes, historic features, and practically all facets of nature including all the itty-bitty details! I have assembled this collection of photographs to offer you a diverse mix of subjects, and have presented only the finest compositions and technically-correct images. Hopefully these pages will leave you with an impression of the detail and beauty that is all around us!

I would be grateful to receive any feedback that you have, either positive or negative, related to my work.

Thank you for your visit and best regards to you all,
