All Natural

Ice in Trees, near Mt. Mitchell, Blue Ridge Parkway, North Carolina  © Doug Hickok

In yesterday's post I mentioned an overnight snowfall on the Black Mountains. Even though most of it had melted by next day, pockets of snow and ice remained on the protected north side of the range. This image may look like a black and white photograph with artificial coloring in the sky, but this is the actual scene shot in color (click on the picture for a larger view). In the iced over trees, you can actually see hints of the red fall foliage.

... no artificial coloring, no high fructose corn syrup, no red dye #2, no preservatives, no artificial sweeteners, no perfumes...
Just plain old photography.


  1. very creative framing and amazing colors

  2. HA! I love your humor, Doug...AND your photography!

  3. And a good one! The natural things are the best.

  4. Beautiful view again! Love the white on the top of the trees. Nicely done.
    Have a nice day.

  5. don't you love these frosted surprises left by mother nature? you certainly know how to appreciate them with your lens.

  6. Hi Doug

  7. ...and no animals harmed in the production of this photograph. An unusual and arresting shot.

  8. Lovely, absolutely lovely. I can't wait for some frost.

  9. another stunning composition in a terrific frame! the tonality of the hillside might indeed lead one to believe that this is a monochrome! (and thanks so much for all this appalachian beauty ...!!!)

  10. So breathtaking. Your photos continue to amaze me.

  11. gorgeous framing Doug--fantastic image!

  12. Great work!! Magnific shot!!

    Salut, Francesc
