Blue Ridge Mountain scenery is among the loveliest in the world, and its drama, color, and variety draw enormous attention and passion from photographers. Along the Parkway, east- and west-facing overlooks draw photographers every morning and evening to dramatic sunrises and sunsets over rolling mountain-top horizons. Hikers can walk short distances and be immersed in mountain woods that teem with scenes of life and growth. The vivid natural colors and textures of the area can be found in countless combinations that allow photographers to shoot the same areas again and again, year after year, and never sacrifice uniqueness. Below is a collection of photography that showcases both rare and common Blue Ridge Parkway sights.
