B5vVz_XFJPT Sunset vistas along the Blue Ridge Parkway are around nearly every turn that is west-facing. But did you know that these beautiful scenes start to unfold long before the sun is due to set? Cloud formations often produce some of the most dramatic sun rays and with unobstructed panoramic views, you’re bound to see something just like in this photo. And don’t let fog discourage you. One minute you could be socked in and the next you’re in full view. This time of year you’ll want to check the real-time closure map for the Parkway - see the link in our profile. In the winter months our section of the Parkway may be closed to vehicular traffic due to snow and ice at these high elevations - even if it is warm and clear at lower elevations. Pedestrians are still welcome to hike in during these closures however.

B50lpbQBq-Y With a waterfall that has been photographed many times by many people with many identical compositions it’s fun to get creative and be different. This is a 30- second exposure focusing on the bottom portion of the falls. The detail in this image is really cool but can’t be realized on a cell phone where unfortunately most will view it. . . . . . #lookingglassfalls #ncmountains #mountains #asheville #brevard #waterfall #waterfall #landscapephotography #natgeolandscape #pisgahnationalforest #blueridgemountains #longexposure #visitnc #wnc #fineartlandscape #discover_carolinas #discovernc #naturelovers #tranquility #travelstoke #nationalforest #cascade #optoutside #adventurephotography #outdoorphotography #canonusa #leefilters #fstop #master_shots

B50lPbIhxw4 I'm not sure if it's that circumstances have changed or that I am beginning to change, but moments of abundance are finding their way into my life more and more. Whatever the reason, I'm so grateful. 🙏 With @thekid587 and Coop doggy dog #pisgahnationalforest #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #discover_carolinas #carolinacollectives #romanticasheville #scenicnc #naturalnorthcarolina #ncoutdoors #avltoday #pisgah #whyihike #wildernessculture #beautifuldestinations #ourstatemag #wncmountains #choosemountains #choosehappiness

B5z6037nmrn Like a picture postcard a blanket of white snow covers the ground around this historical log cabin. Tucked in the Reems Creek Valley in North Carolina is the pioneer farmstead of Zebulon B. Vance. The five-room log house and its outbuildings are furnished to evoke the period from 1795- 1840.

B5z6THlh225 Wanna know something? ❄️ 🌱 I know a lot of people. I love big crowds. I’m an extrovert. I throw parties at my house regularly because I love to have that kind of energy around me. I will listen to you with 100% of my attention, 100% of the time (without ever giving unsolicited advice - cause no one likes that shit). ❄️ 🌱 Wanna know something else? ❄️ 🌱 Not many people really know me. Like I can count on one hand those that do ... maybe three fingers? I could give a master class on keeping it all in, tidy and tight. And I don’t know how to change that. I’ve been this way my entire life, so maybe I don’t really want to change it. But it’s something I’ve been thinking about recently ... so maybe I do.

B5zxpkjABSs The Hopewell-Keowee Church started in 1789 as part of the Presbytery of South Carolina. Construction of the Old Stone Church began in 1797, replacing the congregation’s log meeting house that had burned. The congregation moved to Pendleton in the 1820s. ⁠ #clemson #clemsonsc #southcarolina #exploresc #discoversc #discover_carolinas #exploresouthcarolina #discoversouthcarolina #travelsc #visitsc #insta_carolina #churchonsundays #sundaychurch #oldchurch #1700s #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #nrhp

B5yVpo_jzBr This is the first hike I’ve ever been on where it was both very dry and dangerous in spots because of leaves. Omg, so much leaf fall—up past our ankles in spots. #moonshinefalls #asburytrail #discover_carolinas #waterfallhike #upstatesc

B5x44sLBr_N May your December be filled with light and love, sharing with others and spending time with the ones you love. I know this time of year means a lot of different things to each and every one of us. Some good, some bad memories. Just remember to be kind and share your kindness this season. Whether it’s a simple smile, holding open the door, letting someone cut in line in front of you at the store, buying someone’s coffee, baking a cake and sharing it with neighbors, whatever you choose, just be kind (hopefully always) but especially this season, you just never know how your simple actions could brighten someone’s day or even change their day around💕 . . . #bekind #1000post #Danielisland #danielislandsc #myislandtown #discover_sc #onlyinsouthcarolina #discover_carolinas #southcarolina #southernliving #sltravels #coastalliving #clpicks #sc #carolina #chs #chucktown #charleston #charlestonly #charlestonsc #charlestonlife #holycity #exploresc #wanderlust #spanishmoss #islandlife #bridge #sunset #sunriseoftheday

B5x1Pg4B_Cm All these tiny little horses sure did make for a fun hike. The horizon didn't hurt either. 🤩 (One of the ponies bit my elbow when I didn't have any treats for him. He was young too - just a foal. People need to stop teaching them bad manners.) (Also, hello from afar, Grandfather Mountain. I knew you as soon as a saw you.)

B5xn-ninA-9 I discovered this tree a little more than a week ago and thought it could potentially be a good photograph. The beavers are not a big fan of the camera, mostly the sound of the shutter. So I positioned the camera a little further back than what I really wanted to. They've visited the tree twice this week, they stay for a few minutes, cut into it a little more and then leave. I'm hoping they will return again soon, with each visit they've stayed a little longer. Previous encounters with the camera traps, the animals get use to the shutter sound and will rather quickly determine that it isn't a threat and ignore it all together. Notice the second beaver's tail in the lower right corner of the frame.
