Beautiful Weather at Stone Mountain State Park

June 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Hard to believe I haven't posted anything for over two months. I hibernate during spring until my allergies clear up. Those of you who also suffer. . you know what it's like!

Anyway, I stayed at Stone Mountain State Park the other night because I did some work in Wilkes County for a few days and we couldn't have gotten any better weather. It was absolutely beautiful. Not the best for photography but I tried to work with the bright, harsh light as best as I could. 

I hiked part of the Stone Mountain Loop Trail and took some fun pictures near the Hutchinson Homestead. Pictures of stone convert so nicely to black and white. I usually take the opportunity to do it whenever I can because our mountains in the Southern Appalachians are mostly topped with trees and just look fuzzy when converted to black and white. 

There's a tiny tree that's growing out of the crack in the side of the mountain that I really liked and focused most of my attention on. I mainly used my telephoto lens. Here are a few different compositions of the mountain (taken with my telephoto). I also included a pic zoomed way out to show where I was (which was taken with my wide-angle):
