Hugh Morton: North Carolina photographer

Marie at Blue Ridge Blog has a couple examples of Morton's best work, including his legendary photo of the skyscrapers of downtown Charlotte showing behind a sea of mountain ridges, taken from the top of Grandfather Mountain on a clear day.

UNCTV has a site dedicated to Morton and his career. The Grandfather Mountain website has more.

In the Citizen-Times, obituary and more links including multimedia.

Newspaper people and photographers remembered Morton: here's Scott Fowler in the Charlotte Observer; Jack Betts in the Observer; Lenslinger; The AP's Chuck Burton.
