It has been raining magic in the mountains. Tall pines and rising peaks are mirrored in sparkling rivulets along the roadside.
I followed their trail via North Haven, the gently winding way leading to the cabins at Creston Preserve, (see photo) a conservation-oriented community near Black Mountain, North Carolina.
(photo shows mystery and the magic of this cabin awaiting my visit...fireplace SEE NEXT PHOTO is ready to offer an early autumn glow)
I had returned this day to do some photography for one of my clients who is looking for an extraordinary mountain homesite close to nature and wildlife and mountain trails and waterfalls.
Extraordinary: At Creston , an environmentally-sensitive community, my clients will find thoughtful planning that compliments nature's beauty.
There is a vibrant feeling, a magical "aura" here. But the rains--the colors, the scents, the sounds echoed and wrapped in brumous veils-- seem to intensify it ....In all of this, between thunderclaps and cloudbursts, there is welcome shelter at the community's *eco-friendly clubhouse where, in a steady downpour, I retreated for good company with the neighbors.
*Rain Chains: The community clubhouse employs attractive alternatives to downspouts,widely used in Japan for hundreds of years,not only can be used to harvest rainwater for future use, but can captivate an unsuspecting passerby with the dance and the music of the rain .
