Late summer afternoon on the farm, last fall. The peace of these mountains astounds me every time I wander out amongst them- they're gentle and comforting, worn softer by eons of wind, rain, and habitation than their (relatively) young cousins out West. The sense of wisdom and presence is palpable in the earth of the Southern Appalachians, and in the western NC spread in particular. I find myself seeking the calm comfort of the trees and rushing creeks here, especially in tumultuous times. #peaceofthemountains #farmstead #mountainwedding #appalachianwedding #southernappalachians #oldredbarn #nikon #fallmountains #nathanbaerreisphotography
