Clear Blue Skies

Clear Blue Skies

Photographed at Carvers Gap, located on the North Carolina-Tennessee border, this has become one of my favorite places to practice my photography. The rolling mountains offer amazing compositions for sunrise or sunset, and the old-growth forest makes for mystical scenes.


On this frigid winter morning - temperatures hitting single digits with windchill - there was not a cloud in the sky. Usually, that would not make for an interesting photo, as cloud interest is vital. Still, the contrast of the empty sky and the mountain tops meeting in the middle made for an interesting dynamic. It's as though the mountains and sky are working in perfect harmony, creating simplistic beauty.


This photo was fully produced in the mountains of Western North Carolina, having been printed by us in the Show And Tale studio, and framed at Frugal Framer in the heart of Downtown Asheville. I hope you enjoy this photo, and I thank you for your support and patronage.

  • Paper

    Printed on Red River Aurora Art White 285, this 100% cotton rag paper features a brighter white shade for crisp color tones, a semi-smooth surface, and an acid-free base stock and coating. Aurora is 100% fiber made from cotton linters. These linters are considered "recovered fibers" by the EPA. By using linters, Aurora production is using what would have become waste. It's a win for the environment and a win for you!
