Young Moon

On Saturday we went to hike around Carners Gap NC. Hike starts on the border between NC and Tennessee state lines. It took us couple hours to get to the top of “Cornelious Rex Peake” summit. Views from that spot are absolutely incredible, you have pretty much 360 view from the top of the mountain. To the east you’ll see Grandfather mountain, Beach Mountain and Sugar Mountain (this one easily recognizable by the sky rise on top of it). To the west you’ll see Roan mountain. To the north and south just a lot of smoky hills. We witnessed sunset on the summit and then started our hike down to the gap. The moon was very young and it look very cool in the sky above some lingering orange from the disappeared sun. I already packed my camera and a tripod but could not resist this view and had to take a photo, which probably going to be one of the best from that hike.

I think this one is even good enough to be on someone’s desktop as a wallpaper. If you haven’t noticed yet, I post all photos on my photo gallery at smugmug.com, you just need to click on the image bellow and it will open the larger file from the gallery. You can see more details and save it for personal use if you like.

    Great image. Sunset gradient is top notch and I like the composition of the closer mountain blocking the rest that head off into the distance.
