Best of 2013

Wow! So here we are at the end of 2013 already. I find myself a bit embarrassed because I haven't blogged at all this year.  I truly have had the busiest year of my life in 2013 and I admit, blogging wasn't even on my list of priorities.  Any way, let's move on with a yearly re-cap through photos:

Blue Ridge Parkway in NC
Mile High Bridge at Grandfather Mountain
It was the wettest year on record for the Asheville, NC area.  It made for many cancelled photography outings, but when I did venture out the results were amazing.  I never knew fog could be so moody.

Lake Sequoyah in Highlands, NC
Experimental Forest in Pisgah (Brevard, NC)

Max Patch Bald
As we go through our journey, we are reminded that without rain there would be no rainbows.  This beauty was on display during a local photography excursion I hosted to Max Patch Bald near Hot Springs, NC. 

The following is a collection of additional favorites:

2013 was a fantastic year for photography.  Year #2 with my DSLR camera (Nikon 5100.)  Follow me on Facebook:  Lisa Hale Photos
