Blue Ridge Mountain Beauty

Here are a few photos I took on the Blue Ridge Parkway while in Virginia. The above photo was taken just south of Love Gap.

Taken in almost the exact same location south of Love Gap.

This is a Mennonite Church in Sherando, Va. Photo taken looking west towards West Virginia.

This photo taken on a back access road to the Parkway. You just hope you don't meet anyone coming down as there are very few places to turn around and some very steep drop offs. To give credit where it is due friend and mentor Robin Childers helped me with drawing out the beauty in these otherwise dull digital images. She is a very talented photographer in Fernandina Beach, Fla. I will be posting more photos from the trip on my other blog.

Beautiful! That part of the country has got to be one of the most beautiful parts of the world.

I love the Shenandoah Valley area... so pretty. It's just far enough away that I don't get there as often as I should.

Thanks for sharing the photos - I love fog too.

Yeah Deb I used to live more or less in your neck of the woods and it was a pretty good drive. I was born and raised there and the beauty of it still amazes me. It's like being nurtured in the bosom of nature every day.

I drove through North Eastern Tennessee about 30 years ago. These are beautiful photos. Looking forward to more.

I've got to say, God's 'handy work' still amazes me. I see the mountains and just look in silence. I see the ocean, the same...just stand a gaze. God sure can work beauty. Chris
