Phoenix Rises, et al

These are the other photos of the mountainscapes with cloud shadows that were taken on May 28, 2012 while driving along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  One of the photos accompanied the poem , “Phoenix Rises,” posted on my writer’s blog.  That one is inferior (overexposed), but best illustrated the defined cloud shadows that prompted the poem.  These, however, show the scene along with other mountainscapes from that day, more beautifully and are closer to what I saw with my own eyes.  (Some are in Black & White.)  Enjoy!
