Early Morning In The Roan Mountain Highlands

Flame azalea on Roan Mountain

Flame azalea on Round Bald in the Roan Mountain Highlands in Pisgah National Forest, NC. I shot this image a few yards from the Appalachian Trail. Mount Mitchell is in the distance. Nikon F3? Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 lens? f/16 or 22, a few seconds for shutter speed, probably Fujichrome Velvia film.

Here’s a couple more shots I made from the same location as yesterday’s photo. These are old film shots as well. In fact, I think I shot the horizontal image on the same morning as yeatserday’s shot. Roan Mountain is famous for its Catawba rhododendron bloom in June, but it also has some nice displays of flame azalea and the high-elevation open balds are terrific for dawn and dusk shooting.
