Today, I went to Stone Mountain Park…. first time in several years. Our company is having a meeting there in November, and I wanted to take several photos for the marketing materials we’ll be sending out. Only one of these three I’m showing here will be used, but I wanted to include two others… just because I liked them. (Click photos to enlarge for details.)
First, here’s the prettiest shot of the day. It was taken from the golf course area looking over the lake on the west side of the mountain. It amazes me how this granite rock just suddenly rises up from the mostly level ground around it.
Second, here’s what Stone Mountain is mostly known for, the carving of the Confederate leaders into the mountainside. This came out pretty clearly considering how far away from it I was standing when I took it.
And finally, I was walking along the sidewalk at the conference center, and noticed these pretty little colorful petals all over the steps. It was just too merry not to stop and take a photo! :)
Even though it was very hot while I was there, the park looked like a great place to walk, hike, bike, explore, and relax. I plan to buy a year-long pass and start taking advantage of such a great place that’s relatively near to me. If you’re in Atlanta, don’t forget to check it out!
