This is always one of my favorite stretches during the drive back home from visiting my parents.

Went to the gym today. It was 6 degrees when we started and was below 0 with the wind chill factor! Skyline Drive was closed, so we parked behind a park ranger, bundled up and headed out and did a 10 mile hike down Skyline Drive. Loved every cold minute of it! 😁❄️🌬 #skylinedrive #shenandoahnationalpark #shenandoahnps #findyourpark #mountains #swiftrunoverlook #sandybottomoverlook #baconhollowoverlook #nationalparks #visitva #visitvirginia #naturalvirginia #explorevirginia #onlyinvirginia #virginia #virginiaisbeautiful #winter #snow #hikingadventures #hiking #january2019 #icicles #landscape #landscapephotography #blueridgemountains #blueridge #blueridgeoutdoors #blueridgemoments #visitvbr
“You guys willingly slept in -5 degrees for fun?” We’re a little insane, but I’d do it again.
Colorful reflections.
Hell is still shook.

It’s a big old world out there. A super cold one of late. But we hope y’all are taking advantage of the cold nights and crisp days for some wandering. @austinbwalker shows off why getting a late start can pay off with this night scape from @fortmountainstatepark_. Awesome shot Austin! Thanks for tagging and sharing with us!
Join @thrsdayschld for her free First Friday show February 1 at @onsightrockgym from 6 until 9 PM! Jonea Mohn grew up surrounded by art and music. Her mother is an artist and educator in Jonea’s hometown near the Ozarks in Arkansas, and her father, an avid photographer, gave Jonea her first point-and-shoot camera when she was nine-years-old. Because her family had a love for everything outdoors, nature became and has remained a common theme in her artwork and photography. After changing from violin performance, Jonea completed a BFA in Design at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro with an emphasis on photography and drawing. After graduation, she traveled to and through China with a group of student photographers, focusing on storytelling, documentary photography, and studying with masters in advertising at the Nanjing Normal School of Photography. Jonea moved to Knoxville from North Carolina in the summer of 2014. While her professional work has been directed toward portraiture and photography instruction, her personal endeavors are still steeped in her love for the outdoors and the activities she enjoys. In the last few years, she has developed a love for macro and long exposure images. . . . . . . . . . . #outdoorphotographer #firstfriday #knoxvilleartist #865life #firstfridayknox #knoxvilleart #knoxvillephotographer #firstfridayknoxville #igknoxville #knoxrocks #easttn #myblueridge #instagramtennessee #blueridgemoments #getoutsidetn #onlytennisee #knoxvilletn #knoxvillephotography #knoxvilleweekend #scruffyknox #ilovelocalknoxville #madeintn #easttennessee #surftennessee #outdoorknoxville #optoutside

Drove on the very frozen parkway today ❄️ #blueridgemoments
Frozen in place, mesmerized by a winter wonderland
Frigid days.

Super Blood Wolf Moon. By: @iambab_xiii // #blueridgemoments
The tannin stained Blackwater River crashing over its namesake falls, marking the start of the 8 mile long Blackwater Canyon, a rugged landscape filled with sheer cliffs, waterfalls galore, and plenty of caves. This park is where I first got started going on adventures, and it will always have a special place in my heart. ---------------------------------------------------- #westvirginia #wildandwonderful #almostheaven @wvtourism #eastcoastcreatives #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #itsamazingoutthere #keepitwild #thenortheastcollective #longexposure #adventurephotography #agameoftones #moodygrams #wintervibes #adventureanywhere #vibesofvisuals #ventureout #huckberry #hikertrash

Instagram —> cold, hard reality. Some nights you’re sipping red during the mountaintop sunset. And sometimes you’re sipping tea, working after work. May the meh times make the amazing times that much better. And damn, we’re ready for some warmer weather adventures.
Had a beautiful hike today at looking glass. I this hike never gets old ⛰ #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments #dixie #southland #nc #appalachia #thesouth
It was worth being in 4 degree weather for 45 minutes to capture this gorgeous photo of the blood moon last night.

Here's what we were gripping on in Boone, NC last night. Totally cool! I chose to display the composite in a circular pattern to represent the never ending Lunar cycle. Captured with 200mm, around f8-f11 for the lighter images. f2.8 for the darker images near totality. #lunareclipse #eclipse #natgeoyourshot #booneview #828isgreat #tnc_nc #earthpix #gameoftones #nikon #naturephotography #reallyrightstuff
Pre-show of the Super Blood Wolf Moon from the top of @appalachianskimtn right as the sun was setting and the moon was rising. No it wasn't windy at all, just had to hold down the tripod during exposures! A very long day including a winter hike with family and friends, then a night session of skiing in high winds and cold temps until 11:30pm – shooting from the resort between runs, then quickly going home to continue shooting until the end of Penumbral at 2:48am. More images to come of this Universal Goodness! • • This is a composite of 2 images, one exposed for the landscape and one exposed for the moon. Edited in @adobe @photoshop and @lightroom. Landcape exposure: 130 mm, 1/50 sec., f/4, ISO 100 Moon exposure: 130 mm, 1/500 sec., f/4, ISO 100 • • #appalachianskimtn #superbloodwolfmoon #lunareclipse #moon #boone #blowingrock #eclipse #totality #astrophotography #astronomy #blueridgemoments #blueridgeoutdoors #myblueridge #naturenc #visitnc #exploreboone #explorenc #ncoutdoor_inc #explorecarolina #appalachian_explorers #ourpisgah #blueridgecollectives #booneview #scenicnc #adventureappalachia #naturalnorthcarolina #earthpix #artofvisuals #nikond750
Single digit temperatures high lighted by the warm glow of the rising sun
Tried to flank this little dude's position for some photos, but he was too cunning and escaped my lens. This was as close as I could get, which wasn't close at all. I was hoping his attention would stay focused on the feast of field mice he was enjoying, but once he detected my presence, in the nearby creek, he disappeared into woods. Next time..
I stopped in the middle of the road for this one-that moon caught my eye yesterday evening and I couldn’t stop staring in awe🌕 Also-good thing we travel a lot of backroads 😂#ibrakeforthemoon #superwolfbloodmoon
Took the day to be outside, to breathe in the bitterly cold air. You know the kind of air that simultaneously takes your breath away and makes you feel alive. Ahhh it’s finally starting to feel like winter around here. Happy MLK day everyone, stand up for love! ✌🏼
Purple Haze 💜
Another eclipse down 🙌 this was worth freezing for #superbloodwolfmoon
The clouds were so heavy and thick when I arrived at a favorite spot that I couldn’t see a single tree or ridge in front of me. After a few ferocious wind chilled moments, that same wind rolled the cloud blanket back exposing this peaceful winter scene just before it succumbed to nightfall. • • • • • #godscreation #godsartwork #artofvisuals #homenc #visitnc #tnc #wnc #explorenc #exploreboone #booneview #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #snow #naturephotography #nature #amateurphotography #hiking #hikingadventures #trails #optoutside #allaboutadventures #blueridgemoments #southernstatecollective #naturenc #nc #outdoorculture #romanticasheville #ourstatemag #ncoutdoors #winterwonderland
Perfect winter hike Saturday starting in NC and crossing over into TN joining the AT to visit this beautiful lady. She’s stunning every season but I literally cried when I saw her dressed in her winter wardrobe. • • • • • • #godscreation #godsartwork #hikingculture #teamcanon #waterfallsfordays #longexposure #tnwaterfalls #instagramtennessee #naturaltennessee #waterfallsfordays #onlytennisee #trektheAT #scenicnc #smokymountains #blueridgemountains #appalachiantrail #appalachia #hikingadventures #hiking #getoutside #explore #nature #hiketn #blueridgemoments #ashevilletrails #trails #naturephotography #artofvisuals #blueridgemountains
