Autumn flowers

I thought I'd share a view of Grandfather Mountain taken yesterday from MacRae Meadows to show just how far along the leaves are. This photo is pretty well representative of what I saw around the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Blowing Rock area of NC. There are many patches of brilliant reds and yellows, but there's still a good deal of greens as well. I'm thrilled (and relieved) to see the bright colors -- happy that this summer's drought didn't cause all the leaves to simply turn drab brown and go away without celebration or fanfare. Woo Hoo Fall!

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
--Albert Camus (1913-1960), French author and philosopher

  1. Great picture. I like how you capture the size and essense of the two large trees. Yes it is looking like there's gonna be some culla.
