Grassy Ridge Sunrise

You have to get up extra early this time of year to catch the sun rise. Especially if you're making the 3 mile trek to Grassy Ridge, in the Roan Highlands. I left the trail head at Carvers Gap at 4:30am to make it to Grassy Ridge in time to catch the sunrise.

    This series of images is nothing short of fabulous, Daniel. With each shot, you've utilized the lovely rhodie blossoms as great foreground, and combined it with impressive depth. They are truly classic North Carolina mountain scenes, and I'd say that they belong in a frame on a wall. Congratulations on capturing such beautiful images.
