Blue Ridge Country - November/December 2017 - 34

Photo Essay

Winter CreepsIn

The change can be sudden or subtle
in the mountains: a hint of the cold
to come, or the all-at-once arrival of
a new season. Our photographers
have captured those late fall
moments all over the Southern
Appalachians.

Above: Snow sprinkled down upon the fall colors still remaining at
the lower elevations of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. In
early November, the park roads were closed but a walk facilitated
the capture of this fall/winter scene of colorful trees arched over
the West Prong of Little Pigeon River, not far from Sugarlands
Visitor Center and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Photo by Bill Lea
Top right: Light breaks through early morning fog on an early
December day at milepost 455 on the Blue Ridge Parkway near
Cherokee, North Carolina. Because of the low light, this was taken
with my camera on a tripod to prevent blur (the shutter speed was
1/10 of a second at f/8 - far too slow to shoot handheld at the 44 mm
focal length employed). Circular polarizer filter on my lens helped
reduce glare. Photo by Robert Stephens
Bottom right: This photo was taken on a backroad in Grayson
County, Virginia last fall, and later in the evening so that the setting
sun highlighted the fall color. Photo by Danny Redd
Bottom left: On the Blue Ridge Parkway near Cowee Mountain
Overlook, a golden sun illuminates the ridges and hollows.  At an
elevation of 5950 feet, leaves here are among the first to change
colors. Photo by Jason Penland
