a successful day

If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.

This is a view of the Blue Ridge taken from Round Bald in the Roan Highlands last winter and enhanced using Topaz Simplify (a Photoshop plug-in), which really brings out the color and makes the photo look more like a painting.


  1. Mark - This is a gorgeous example of your work! I work with a non-profit based in Johnson City called Appalachia Service Project ( perhaps you've heard of us? We repair homes for low-income families throughout the Central Appalachian mountains. I've been following your blog and have enjoyed seeing how you capture the beauty of the area we serve. Keep 'em coming!
