View 👀 from an observation gazebo during my first time at Craggy Gardens . It was early on a very cold and windy Monday morning in December, which meant complete solitude ❤ I didn't even encounter many cars on the parkway ☺ Just the way I like it! 💯 . 📸 Craggy Gardens Trail | MP 364.4 | Blue Ridge Parkway | December 3, 2018 . . . . #welovenc #imagesofnorthcarolina #explorecarolina #northcarolina #visitnc #blueridgemoments #blueridgeday #brp #nc_nelp #blueridgenps #OnlyInNorthCarolina #nc_daily #roadtrippin #discovertheroad #femalesolotravel #shesolos #solotravel #BetterDays #cardwelling #roadwarriors360 #splendid_mountains #blueridgemountains
"Great Spirit, on my tongue Be still, be still, the time will come When everyone will sing "All Life is Sacred" Well, I'm waiting, Great Spirit You're a reflection of us Some of your people can't hear it The cries of the Earth Some of your people can't feel it The way that it hurts And it hurts, Great Spirit" - Nahko #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #blueridgemountains #beautiful #equestrian #wildlifephotography #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeonearth #nature #explore #virginia #freedom #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #natgeotravel #canon #teamcanon #sigmapro #sigmaart #canonphotography #landscape
Mountain life is the best life ⛰ ❄️ 💦. #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments
I have so much fun flying that sometimes I forget to take any pictures at all. Other times I stop and fly just to see a view I love from the ground in the moment from a different perspective! #dji #djimavicair #virginia #instadrone #dronephotography #dailydrone #shotondji #dronestagram #quadcopter   #landscape #photography #uav #djiglobal #aerialphotography #mavicair #sky #drone_maniacs #djimavic #adventure #getoutstayout #dronesdaily #picoftheday #dronepics #twenty4sevendrones #bee2b #mountains #blueridgemountains #valley #enjoytheview #roanokeriver

Nearly every day one of us says "let's go on a thru hike!" 🌳 . Dreaming about future possibilities will play a role in the bigger picture one day! 🌄 . Also, doesn't everyone double fist snacks and water while they hike?! . . . #appalachiantrail #blueridgemountains #virginiaisforlovers #virginia #posttrailblues #at2017 #dreaming #wanderlust #deuter #backpacking #childhoodunplugged
19° When I entered the water. Numb hands, ice in the guides, getting stranded on the wrong side of the river from an unannounced water release. Still worth it. :) #teamnorvise #bigtflyfishing #streamerjunkie #flytyingjunkie #fly_waters #squimpishflies #blueridgemountains #toccoarivertailwater #iceinmyveins

We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible
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

I finally got around to making my husband some beard oil! Mostly I didn't want to spend $15 on a tiny bottle, and because I love him, and don't want him putting just anything on that dashing facial hair. #beardoil #essentialoils #doterra #mountainman #homesteadlife #allnatural #farmhairdontcare #swva #blueridgemountains
🙏🌀 I’m guided by the moons, seems something significant always happens in my realm of existence in alignment with the moons. And on that note 📝 I received a gift today, which I’ll share more about tomorrow, still processing the meaning and performing a special ritual in the bath tonight with essential oils, journal & audible to digest it all. There is some news though to share today, on this very full Wolf moon and that is if you are planning to go (or on the fence about going) to Virginia’s first Universal Healing Arts Festival @flowjamfestival that grew from a seed planted in my backyard ⛺️ save $10 and use code “FULLMOON” to snag your spot 🌕 at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains ⭐️It ends Wednesday Jan 23rd 12PM. This moon is all about following your heart ~ as cheesy as it sounds, it takes work & courage to follow this authentic path. Take time to notice how far you’ve come to make your desires reality. Be the creator and send gratitude on this day, to all that you are ⭐️ #WolfMoon #FollowYourHeart
Today: 3 layers of pants, 6 layers of shirt, 6 degrees fahrenheit, and 2 cold cold friends. #mlkday
[3/52] January 15 - January 21: This past week wasn’t too crazy... and I didn’t really shoot at all except for when I had to take a detour on my way back to Blacksburg on Wednesday. The view of the mountains was absolutely lovely, but landscapes have ALWAYS been my weakness. My favorite thing is definitely one solid focus point, with a hella shallow depth of focus, and bright colors... so this wasn’t exactly the most perfect scenario for me, but maybe that just means I need to work on improving my landscape shots! We’ll see what happens... it’s a little tricky with a 50mm and I totally miss my 18-55mm that I was able to use on my crop sensor camera (if only wider lenses for full frames weren’t an average of $500 😅). _____________________ #darleneshoots #photography #landscapes #blueridgemountains #catawba #catawbava #virginia #mountains #52weeks #canonusa #canonphotography #50mm #canon6dmkii #fullframe #lightroom
Another nice moon 🌚 tonight on a chilly #blueridgemountains night. #blackanklelodge #fannincountychamberofcommerce
The BRP was closed to vehicles due to winter weather. That's okay, it was worth the windy and cold hike to get here. #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway #roughridge #asheville #ashevillenc #sonya7iii #ncoutdoor_inc #ncoutdoors #sonyalpha #a7iii

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
Comparison • social media has created a culture where we think everyone’s life is more exciting or glamorous than our own. Everyone puts up a “highlight reel” of their life, shown through filters and photo editor apps that typically make a lot of people unrecognizable if you were to run into them randomly in person. That’s not reality. The second that you accept that this is nothing more than an app on your phone just like the 20+ others you probably have on there, the sooner you can let that comparison go. Go talk to someone new in person today please. Stop comparing yourself to others, you’re doing just fine ❤️😄 namaste
