Watery Wednesday #16: Price Lake


"Trust Me, It's Cold"
Blue Ridge Parkway between Boone and Blowing Rock, NC - February 2001 (Click to embiggen)

Watery Wednesday

Two of the better known parks along the Blue Ridge Parkway are the Moses Cone Memorial Park and the Julian Price Memorial Park. I don't know if Mr. Cone and Mr. Price knew each other in life, but the parks bearing their names adjoin each other, and both feature impressive impoundments well stocked for fishing. This is Price Lake on a chilly February morning in 2001.Violence Unsilenced

I really like the shadows across the rocks - the black & white just tops it off nicely!

Pacey said...

This is really cool place, makes it more cool with it in B & W, makes me think how this looks like, to see it there in my own eyes.

I'll take your word that it's chilly -- but it also looks chilly. What sort of fish can you catch there?

it doesn't look chilly, could it be 'cause it's black and white i wonder???

Can't be that cold. The water isn't even frozen :)
Anyway it's a lovely b&w shot of the rocks and the water. There's something very special about monochrome shots.

I love that rock. Nice shot. I'm sure it's cold, too. But not as cold as my water shot! :-)

using the b/w, you aren't distracted by the colours, but allowed to focus on all the textures in the rocks, water, and tree!
