The need for travel remains ever present as I continue trolling through Asheville shots. Fog is a glorious, peaceful phenomenon, isn’t it? Conditions have been right for fog in Kentucky over the last few days. I’ve seen some lovely photos from folks out and about, mostly in the country. I should be one of those folks shooting, but I’ve been too busy sleeping or working. So, I’ll enjoy the fog from the Blue Ridge Mountains for now.

“Our time here is magic! It’s the only space you have to realize whatever it is that is beautiful, whatever is true, whatever is great, whatever is potential, whatever is rare, whatever is unique, in. It’s the only space.” ~ Ben Okri

It rained much of the day. Not a deluge like they’ve had in Western North Carolina recently, but a slow, gray drizzle. However, by late afternoon, the sky got interesting. We ascended the Blue Ridge Parkway. I did a little HDR bracketing and talking to God. The air smelled heavenly, the temp equally perfect, and some of the rhododendrons were even still blooming. There just wasn’t enough time to soak it all up, but I did the best I could. I could never get tired of such majesty. Mercy, our blue planet is gorgeous.

I finally had the chance to get away for a day, so I loaded up the car with my cameras and Stacy Yelton and off to Asheville, North Carolina we went. The traffic was horrid, making a long drive longer, but a rainy sunset from the Blue Ridge Parkway was totally worth it. The overcast sky and distant rain shower set a mystical scene. Stacy snapped a beautiful wide-angle shot of it. I zeroed in on the cascading mountains. We live on a beautiful planet with endless possibilities. Carpe diem.
