Autumn Window

This scene was found on the Blue Ridge Parkway just above Waynesville, NC.  Autumn put on a glorious show with the mountains blanketed with color that would just take your breath.  This "window" opened up to a panoramic of layer upon layer of  fall color.

Almost Autumn

Just beginning to change color from green to bright red, as if it were getting a jump on fall.  This was taken just below Joanna Bald in Graham County, NC.

Silver Maple

One of the most beautifully unusual trees I saw this year was this Silver Maple.  The  leaves were a bright yellow outlined in red.  I was not the only one out this day trying to get a good shot of this particular tree.

"Sassyfras"

This small Sassafras would not be outdone by the larger Maple, Poplar, and Beech trees along Cherohala Skyway in Graham County, NC.  It seemed completely unaware of its small size as it glowed bright orange from its position near the ground.

Joyce Kilmer Autumn

A Holly tree covered with red berries, a giant Hemlock and a yellow Beech tree mesh together to make a beautiful contrast of color on a late October autumn day.
