‘Misty Mountain Melody, North Carolina, Appalachian Blue Ridge Mountains’ by Dave Allen

Today’s Photo of the Day captures the “Misty Mountain Melody” of the Appalachian Blue Ridge Mountains near Roan Mountain, Tennessee and was submitted to the Spring Flowers Assignment by Dave Allen.

“Misty Mountain Melody Spring catawba rhododendron flowers blooming along the Appalachian Trail in western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee. I was blessed to witness this amazing sunset as some heavy fog rolling through the area lifted just in time along my favorite section of the Appalachian Trail near Roan Mountain, TN. I really liked how the mountains were somewhat obscured behind the rolling fog, giving only a hint at the beauty which lies beyond. Hope you enjoy it 🙂 Single exposure with a Nikon D800 w/ 17-35mm f/2.8 and Singh-Ray ND Grad,” says Allen.
