I'm not one to post on this page, but I wanted to share what our view has been from the famous local stop, Caesars Head State Park, at least until recently. The smoke is from a wildfire that began on Pinnacle Mountain in upstate South Carolina. At the time of this picture, the fire was around 50% containment, with copters working dusk til dawn carrying water from the reservoir you see in this picture. I am pleased to announce that due to the immense amounts of rain over the past few days, the fire is now at 100% containment after burning for over a full month! Thousands of acres later, we are pleased to hear such news.I'm amazed that such danger can be so beautiful! And am blessed to have witnessed the beauty of nature, as well as the heroic efforts of the firefighters as they fought hard day in and day out to put a damper on the blazes in the area.Feel free to visit more photos at www.justinkeckphotography.smugmug.comAnd go give my page a like as well atwww.facebook.com/justinkeckphotography/

I always enjoy seeing the vibrant red plumage of a male Northern Cardinal, but especially when the Season changes from Fall to Winter. I believe that these brillant birds appear to convey a message from our dearly departed loved ones. So when you see a Cardinal, I hope you find peace and comfort in knowing that you are loved and being visited by an Angel from Heaven.Vinton, VirginiaNear the Blue Ridge ParkwayPhoto taken: 12/5/16To see more of our images, please visit our Facebook page Golder Photography.

Just a Beautiful Waterfall.Although the water level was low when I took these images they are still beautiful. Love how the fall colored leaves are in and around the falls and how the waterfall reflects in the pool below them.These falls are below the main Red Fork falls and are part of a series of 6 waterfalls in the area, a must place to visit and explore. Warning getting to all the falls is very slick, steep and treacherous so you need to be very careful.These falls are located in the Cherokee National Forest, Unicoi, TN.For more of our work check out and like our photo page at https://www.facebook.com/JandGPhotosLikes, comments and shares are welcomed, but please do not alter the photos (crop the border and our copyright) and use it as your own.

Lindy State of MindI spent a wonderful afternoon and early evening at this ever popular sunset hotspot at Blackwater Falls State Park a few months ago. Lindy Point is one of the more beautiful overlooks in the entire state of West Virginia. If you want to shoot a sunset here in peak fall foliage season, you better arrive at least two hours early if you want to stake out a good spot to shoot. While waiting on the sunset to arrive, I managed to catch a few nice images of some wonderful cloud action over the gorge. Please feel free to share and if you wish, give my page a "Like" as well.
