This is a view of Table Rock in South Carolina. Note that the shoreline of the reservoir indicates the normal water level. Last fall the water was several feet below the shore.
Giant rock formations scatter the mountain, overhanging into the gorge.
There are many shades of spring green as the various trees fully leaf.
This long-range view gives an idea of just how dramatic the elevation drop is. The land below is more than a thousand feet lower than the land on which I stood to take the photograph.
So much attention is paid to the mountains in autumn, and deservedly so. But I really love the greens that cover the mountains in spring.
