The Blue Ridge Mountains are without doubt my favorite place to be and favorite place to shoot. The sole reason I first picked up a camera was in an effort to capture their beauty. Many do not realize that these are some of the oldest mountains on Earth. Today they are severely weathered. However, they were once among the largest mountains on Earth, likely rivaling the height of today's Rockies. They are gentle yet still offer great heights. Oh, the stories these ridges tell. I have split this gallery into two different sections due to size. Please be sure to visit both (Virginia) and (North Carolina and Tennessee) Blue Ridge Mountain pages.
