Entry Description

Brasstown Bald is the highest point in the state of Georgia, United states. At the elevation of 4,784 feet, Brasstown Bald observation tower offers 360 degree view of Blue ridge mountains. In this early March night skyscape, the moonless sky was bathed in countless stars while the lights sprawled towards the horizon from Helen, and Hiawassee. Far in the distance, is the majestic central band of our Milkyway Galaxy and in the center is the Brasstown Bald observation tower.

About Photographer

They say life is best seen with eyes half closed. For me, life is best seen with eyes half closed on to a camera's viewfinder. Through the lens, I see myriad images, shapes and colors.The unusual. The off-the-cuff. The waylaid. And the meandering. I am Prashant Naik. I've been a photographer all my life. My artistic instincts lean towards Mother Nature, the beauty of night, snapshots of travel to varied places from ground and above.
