Moonscape – Mount Mitchell, North Carolina, USA

This image was taken from the top of Mount Mitchell, North Carolina.  I figured I had something because there were about 50 photographers lined up that evening to catch the sunset, and I was the only one facing the opposite direction.  The dead trees are the result of acid rain and aphid infestation yet this scene still possesses  a haunting beauty.

  1. Chromatology… all the shades of blue in one photograph…

    Horizon… deep, attractive, the apparent beauty…

    Moon… perfect setting, simplicity and superbness simultaneously

    Nature… dead but remarkably present…

    such a photograph should not be left uncommented…

    the line of dead trees… it reminds me of a poem…

  2. Thank you so much Naughty Scarlett for writing the very first comment on Moonscape. I am elated. I posted this in the very beginning of Blog-Bisogno when no one on the web even knew it was here. Eventually buried under hundreds of other posts, it was left to languish in cyberspace.

    I am a colorist. I am deeply affected by color. I am emotional about color. Most people are. They just don’t realize it. They need to be guided to these feelings through a painting or photograph which opens the door to appreciation.

    • Lezlie Sokol Painted Cloud Gallery: Thank you so much. It was very emotional for me. All my passion for our environment and the flora and fauna that call it home is in this image. Although ravaged by acid rain the scene still retains its innate beauty.
