    Re: post your trees!

    I pretty much shoot portraits exclusively, but lo and behold, I made a picture of a tree. This is at Rosario Beach on Fidalgo Island. If you saw the movie Captain Fantastic, this is the cliffside where they had the funeral pyre at the end of that movie. It's right on my way to work.

    Thank you, Ben. The tree and my friend Melanie and the lens get 88% of the credit.

    That's quite impressive--Gerald Manley Hopkins would be proud. (FWIW, you'll find similar scenes up on the no-longer-quite-so-grassy balds here in Appalachia, though you might be in for a bit of a stroll.)

    Thanks CB! I don't mind a stroll if there are landscapes to be found.So where are we talking about exactly?

    I think you have mostly heath balds there in Virginia, which in my experience are mostly good for thrashing around in laurel and irritating sunning timber rattlers. The true "grassy" balds start a little further west on the AT, with the three balds on Roan Mountain probably being the most accessible to you. For my purposes here in the GSMNP, Russell Field--which is an un-managed bald slowly going back to forest--and Spence Field are wonderful, airy places to explore, with pretty much the same assemblage of vegetation there in your picture from Ambergate. (I.e. birches and serviceberry, with hawthorn being dominate still further west on Gregory Bald.)

    (FWIW, if you're playing tour guide in Gatlinburg, Andrews Bald is quite accessible when Clingman's Dome Road is open, usually the first week of April...it's a favorite picnic spot for my wife and me, with great views into the Alarkas to the south and usually a family group of kestrels hawking grasshoppers in the skies above.)
