Roan Mountain – Part 2


Roan Mountain  – Part 2

After a vigorous hike to the top of Jane Bald, we had hopes of catching a dramatic sunset. Upon reaching the summit we noticed a few storm clouds surrounding the mountain. With any mountain / high elevation weather can be very unpredictable but normally if you wait long enough things change and it can be very rewarding. However, that’s not always the case and after waiting for a good hour and a half it started to downpour. Our first thought was to wait it out and we would be rewarded (LOL), so we waited and waited and then waited some more and determined that the weather was not going to be in our favor so we started our trek down the mountain in the pouring rain. Sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t.

As with all outdoor or landscape photography there is an uncertainty that comes in the form of “will I have and capture good light, will I reach my destination on time”, this is all part of the allure and attraction.

While the week progressed and quite a few hikes up the mountain we honestly had nothing but great light and I’m very excited to say that I came home with images to prove it 🙂

Roan Mountain will certainly make the return list 😊
