Craggy Gardens, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The picture was taken a few minutes after sunset from Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy to see why these mountains are called the Blue Ridge Mountains. Foliage and colors are still nice from Asheville up to this point going north. After that, it is gone.

Very lovely, Cecile! I confess to having had a bit of 'sticker shock' when I just priced the Nikon D80 and its newer version, the Nikon D7000! This is why I've yet to enjoy such a camera -- they're priced way out of my budget! One-ninth of my annual income is just not feasible, but I'll continue to admire the great photos you take and post!

About CecileWNC

CecileWNC

Thank you to all of you for your kind comments, I appreciate them, always!At 16, I bought a Praktica Super TL 2. Since then and for the last 30+ years, I have not stopped taking pictures. I am playing now with a Nikon D-7000 and loving it! I suspect that if you were to give a digital camera to a depressed person and let them free to roam in nature, their well being would greatly improve. I am in a constant state of wonder (well OK ... almost constant). I am an fiber artist and dabble in oils but am in love digital photography. Colors and emotions are what I try to translate in my pictures.Thank you to all of you WunderPhotographers for bringing more beauty into my life!Whiterain, another photographer on this site, is my son.Create your own visitor map!
