Blue Ridge Autumn

I took three attempts to take this photo. The first two times I was interrupted by incoming sound of the car. One time from the south, another time from the north. Both have the same curve as you see in this photo, so you could not see the car, you hear it first, then it shows up and they drive at least 40+ miles/hour on this mountain road. So I did what any sane person would do, grabbed my tripod and walked off the parkway… of course for some folks me being on the parkway taking photos might not sound as being sane…but hey if not, then you would not be able to see this photo…someone has to do it.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
