Off to the Blue Ridge! (Alex Mody)

Hey everybody,

I've come from West Virginia down to Boone, North Carolina, where I am now. I had planned to shoot for a day or so around Breaks Interstate Park, which is interestingly in Virginia and Kentucky, but the weather conditions and foliage were not ideal. So, I made my way south towards the Linville Gorge, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, and I photographed Linville Falls this afternoon. I'll have a photo from Linville ready in my next blog entry.

Here's a photograph I made yesterday on Lost Land Run in western Maryland. This is a small section of a much larger set of cascades. I was able to compose this scene by getting super close with my 12-24mm zoom lens.

Drop by the Nature's Best Students website and check out the new magazine!

Breaks is a great place to shoot - I was out there this July doing a biological inventory.
Some of the trails are awful to navigate though (on the KY side mainly) - slick rocks and the possibility of a nasty fall AND you have a camera to worry about!

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I still hope to get up to Breaks this week, if conditions allow. I've been told that the color is still at least a week away from peak. Thanks for the advice, though. I'll be careful out there.
