Weather here on the east coast have been pretty much weird. Last week I was asking for some warmer days, well, I got my wish, but it should not be that way here in the mid January. As far as I’m concerned the winter is yet to arrive to North Carolina and we are half way through it. March will be around here in about six weeks. We have daffodils coming out like it is early March, just about two month early.
Since winter is yet to arrive, I felt it would be appropriate to post one of the Fall photos at this time. Of course there is no colors anymore, everything is grey at the moment, but unless we get some cold front(s) this whole thing will just transition into the Spring, with no winter.
I took photos in the movie and couple short time lapse movies last Sunday, one day before big storm Sandy came to the East coast. We were there during sunrise hours and the weather was actually not that bad. Wind was picking up a bit and clouds were moving in, but there were no rain at that point. Later in the morning we drove down to Boston and caught our planes down south, probably some of the few last planes that took off from Boston for the next two days.

It is getting chilly outside, in many places its even snowed, and most leaves are pretty much gone or about to. Another winter is just around the corner. There will be plenty of grey days in the next few months, just like one I had on that specific day. At least that beautiful yellow was something that pleased the eye and provided nice contrast with other naked trees and grey skies.
Anyone to guess where this place is? Even if you never been to this cool town, there are some clues…just saying…
I know it is not really fair to put photo like this and expect anyone to know where it is. It is practically impossible to know where it could be. Pretty much anywhere in the world. But, who knows, maybe we have some Japanese Maple tree experts here who have visited every place on earth and knows each one of those pretty trees.
Virginia Creeper trail use to be a railway, now converted in to the bike and easy hiking/jogging path. I think it is totally runs for about thirty miles, but the most popular segment is between White Mountain and Damascus, about seventeen or so miles. It constantly cress cross a small mountain river and there are many bridges, more than thirty of them. Each one is numbered.
This dog was hanging out at this bridge, waiting for his owner or maybe he is local and just likes to see people going each way. He moved around quite a bit so we had to hang there for a few minutes before I took this one.
