Photographed atop Black Balsam Knob on a chilly, breezy summer morning in 2022, sunrise is captured in all its beauty. As light breaks through the mountains, fractal rays of gold radiate the sky and illuminate the windswept landscape. Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Black Balsam Knob sits at just over 6,000 feet. Like many of the balds in the area, Black Balsam Knob owes its topography to clear-cut logging and locomotive fires in 1925 and 1942. These fires burned deep down into the mineral-rich topsoil slowing reforestation or stopping it altogether.
