Monochrome Monday #14: Price Lake


"Price Lake"
Near Boone, NC - February, 2001 (Click to embiggen)


Take the Blue Ridge Parkway southwest out of Boone, NC and you'll cross Price Lake, part of the Julian Price Memorial Park. As it is in much of this area, native stone is used in a lot of the construction. This, for example, is part of a guardrail on the bridge that takes the parkway across the lake right at the spillway.

Makes feel cold to look at that, even the stone looks harder for that icicle. Good stuff.

With just one icicle it really suits the strakness of a monochrome that would be lost in colour. Great shot.

Even native stone have icy tears at this time of year!

What an observer you are, Mojo!

Rock solid? Though I expect that that little bitty water steam will eventually have its way. Nice photo.
