Got up today and headed up to the Blue Ridge Parkway near Graveyard Fields.  I had heard that the rhododendrons were blooming up there.  Sure enough, they were.  But unlike the Craggy Garden area, compositions with mountains views with  rhododendrons in the foreground are very limited.  I was fortunate to find this photo op at the East Fork Overlook - elevation 4955 feet.  This is one of my favorite times to visit the Parkway.  The other is autumn.  It doesn't get much better than this.
