A view from the top of Grandfather Mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I'm a staff member of the annual Grandfather Mountain Nature Photography Weekend there every June and co-judge of the photography contest at this event. Needles to say, I always take advantage of the opportunity to shoot the amazing scenery while I'm there.

This is a "stitched" panorama ‚ 5 individual photographs combined into one panoramic image. On the occasion that I took the photos that make up this image, there were about a dozen photographers at the top of the mountain around sunset. As the sun dipped below the horizon the other photographers packed up and went down the mountain one by one until I was the only one left. It was about 15 minutes after sunset that the light was right for this image to be made.

It makes magnificent 22" x 36" prints, one of which I keep in my office at Youngstown State University.
