The Story behind the Photo: Wolf Mountain Sunset

Wolf Mountain Sunset

Welcome to my first mini blog post featuring the images of Red Rock Photography. My goal is to share my passion of the Blue Ridge Mountains with my fans and followers through my art. I love these mountains and hope that you enjoy the stories behind the photos. 


The Story behind the photo

On one of my scouting expeditions, I found two amazing rocks off of the side of the Blue Ridge Parkway that overlook a remote section of Jackson County called Little Canada. Once I climbed up on top and took some compass readings, I determined that it would have a sunset view most of the year, but best closest to the spring and autumn equinoxes. The rocks coupled with the amazing view of the valley below filled with autumn color have made this my current most popular image. To get the entire scene in, I stitched 26 photos together to create this panorama. It has every color of the rainbow in the photo, allowing it to be placed in any space regardless of the rooms colors. In other seasons, it has blooming azaleas and rhododendron, and I hope one day to make it here in winter to see it with snow. However, that would be a long hike if the Parkway is closed. 

Would you like to have Wolf Mountain Sunset in your home or office? It is available in its standard 1:3 format by clicking HERE. If you want it in any custom size not offered on the website please feel free to email me at
16x48 and 20x60 are the most popular sizes and both fit wonderfully above a bed or behind a sofa.
