Grassy Ridge Catawba Rhododendron Bloom Under Blue Skies
Photo By Mark Vandyke

  • Title: Grassy Ridge Catawba Rhododendron Bloom Under Blue Skies
  • State/Province/Region: North Carolina
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Town: Roan Mountain
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: My hope was for the sun's first morning rays to light the pink Rhododendron to lend the blooms some life. However, what I got was a load of lively fog and some fantastic blue skies playing peak-a-boo. The beauty of landscape photography for me personally is the constant need to adapt your expectations; you enter a scene with an idea of what you're going to see, then the scene presents and you've got to quickly reassemble yourself and your gear to capture the conditions. This constant change and adaptation keeps things fresh and interesting for me, and makes returning to the same location--like Grassy Ridge--a consistently exciting experience. Cherokee National Forest and Pisgah National Forest come together in the Roan Highlands.
  • Gear: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 16-35mm
