Blue Ridge Mountains

The Blue Ridge Mountains evoke feelings of mystery and magic. The mountain chain is up to 1 billion years old. This predates many fossils remains. It’s violent beginnings have mellowed over millions of years resulting in the soft rolling peaks we see today. During the spring, wildflowers dot the landscape until the trees burst with green and waterfalls cascade down, full of winter water. Wildlife roams the countryside giving birth to another generation. Birds of all kinds migrate, their calls filling the canopy. Fall brings brilliant color of oranges, reds and yellows that carpet the landscape. At night the stars leap from the sky as the Milky Way stretches overhead. Winter brings light snows and lovely ice sculptures on the rock faces. It is a park for all seasons.

I have lived 30 minutes from Shenandoah National Park and 45 minutes from George Washington National Forest since 1996. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to experience these parks in all seasons and all kinds of weather. Below are a few of my favorites available as limited edition fine art prints.
