Carolina Majesty

All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) American essayist and philosopher--

Grandfather Mountain, NC

When I visited last week, the colors were just starting to change (especially on the other side of the mountain), so I changed this to sepia, wanting to emphasize the textures and the ruggedness of the landscape. I also liked the interplay of light and dark that appear from this angle of the mountain during mid morning as the sun begins to illuminate the tips of the trees and rocks. Within Lightroom, I added a painted effect on the image and a vignette. Click the photo to see a much larger view of this spectacular mountain.


  1. Very nice treatment of one of the great spots on this planet.

  2. Absolutely out of this world! I am from that area, Spruce Pine,N.C., and I can tell you, your photography is awesome. You do it justice!
