Hanging By A Moment
Great Smoky Mountains NC Scenic Summer Landscape
Someone once said "Live for the moments that you can't put into words", and this quote resonates with me here. I love the process of landscape photography, the act of distilling a wide array of elements down into this one moment when everything clicks. Finding all of the ingredients that tell some sort of story, and waiting until something unique happens to bring it all together. That minute when the sun finds the one single hole in the clouds and for only a moment it shines its beautiful golden light on the blooming rhododendron flowers in the foreground, highlighting the beauty of a scene that was rather average only a moment before. Often you wait and it never happens, but it's exactly that which makes the special moments worth living for.

The southern Appalachian Mountains are an incredible sight during the summer rhododendron bloom, offering bright flower blooms against a deep scenic backdrop under dramatic skies over the Blue Ridge Mountains and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
