Fall in the Blue Ridge Mountains, part 2

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”
–John Muir

Hope this finds you doing well wherever it finds you. It’s amazing how quickly the seasons pass. As I edit these photos from the fall, the branches, now barren, whisper of the coming snows. Imagine, in the Southern Hemisphere it is hinting of Spring.

  1. These are beautiful! I love how well color has been captured in these pictures. I especially love “Scene along the Blue Ridge Parkway”. it is as if someone has painted all these colors together. Like a rainbow floating on the ground.

    • Hey Charley, yeah, there is a certain quality in the light in the edge seasons. The sun being so low in the South, the way that light courses through the forest. You’re going to make me write a poem. haha.
