“Cold Unknown” - Elk Mountain Scenic Highway, North Carolina
As I made my way to photograph Craggy Gardens shrouded in fog. I came to a road closing along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and had to make a detour along this little road. Not being able to visit the park was unfortunate considering the conditions were perfect, but this scenic route down out of the mountains definitely made up for it.
Sometimes it takes more courage not to let yourself see. Sometimes knowledge is damaging - not enlightenment but enleadenment. If one recognizes the difference and prepares oneself - it is extraordinarily brave. Because when it comes to certain human miseries, the only witnesses should be the pavement and maybe the trees.
