Weekly Photo Challenge – CURVES / Travel Theme – FLOW

“Live and let live, love and let love, flower and fade, and follow the natural curve, which flows on, pointless.”

D.H. Lawrence



My husband and I visited good friends in Asheville, NC this past weekend.  Over four days we had great food (and lots of it!), chamber-of-commerce weather, terrific hiking, fun golf and wonderful company.  On top of all that, we spent time enjoying their magnificent view.  I thought the graceful, flowing curves of the landscape presented a perfect fit for this week’s challenges.



“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.”

Phyllis Diller

There’s something so peaceful about a mountain vista – especially in the early morning hours.  The low-lying clouds only seem to enhance the view as the sun works to clear them away.  If you click on the photo below, you can see a tiny farm in the lower left side.



“My curves are not crazy.”

Henri Matisse

Here’s to peaceful mornings shared with good friends; it doesn’t get much better than that 🙂

  1. I don’t think I would ever leave the rocking chair on the front porch with these views!
    The little farmhouse tucked in corner with the Curves n Clouds pic is my fav scene. And the sun coming up –to another glorious day! Thanks for sharing the view. dsup

    • Thanks Andy! Actually, it’s NEVER easy for me to get up early LOL. But our friends’ guest room got full sun at daybreak and it was just too beautiful not to get up to shoot it.

      • Oh, yes. I have a condo there. But my kids grew up and moved out west. I now live in northern Arizona–very wonderful. I hope to turn my condo into a vacation home. I love Virginia and the East Coast.

  6. I didn’t know that D H Lawrence quote, it’s lovely 🙂 and those mountains are stunning, could spend hours looking at those curves 🙂
    For some reason your posts haven’t been showing up in my reader, along with some other blogs I follow, so I’m glad I found these last two!

  7. Lovely photos. I was looking for photos of those mountains a while back. Here’s the post I did called Sitting On top of the Worldhttp://bumbastories.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/sittin-on-top-of-the-world/
