Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC/Historical Inn Shrouded in Fog

While I’m finishing the next blog for the Biltmore Estate, I thought I’d post one of my favorite images of the Historical Inn which is located on the grounds. I took this photo on an early morning walk, just as the sun was coming up. You can see the vineyards in the foreground and inn in the distance, cast in a shroud of fog. This is my favorite time of the day. (And no, I don’t sleep in when I’m on vacation!)

While I’m working on the next blog for the Biltmore Estate I thought I’d share a photo I took on my morning coffee walk from the Biltmore Historic Inn to Antler Village.

Would you like a print? Please click on “Contact”. My photography is printed on aluminum. Utilizing an advanced process which infuses dyes directly into the metal, the colors and saturation are really amazing. In addition, your print will be displayed using mount blocks which float the image ½ inch off the wall.

Moss Landing CA Excursion

If you head south on Highway one from Santa Cruz you’ll pass a town called Moss Landing. A lot of people probably drive right by.  At first glance, your eyes are drawn to the huge smoke stacks.  But don’t let that deter you – there are some beautiful views, a harbor and a few good places to visit. When you see the sign for Moss Landing you’ll also see The Whole Enchilada Market Place. They have a unique farmers market where you can find many exotic fruits and vegetables at very reasonable prices. You’ll also find a fabulous restaurant called Phil’s Fish Market.  I stumbled upon it on my last trip and would make a special coastal run just to eat there.  It’s packed (I mean packed) so try to get there early (directions below).  If you want to take off on your own and try this trip, I would highly recommend it.  Get a good “Books on CD” and hit the road.  You won’t regret it!  (I took this photo on a cold, foggy morning. I absolutely love photographing in the fog! It softens the world around you muting colors and shapes.) Continue reading “Moss Landing CA Excursion”
