“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L. M. Montgomery

One of the things I enjoy most about October is spending time looking at the changing colors of the leaves.  I try to visit different elevations each weekend so I can make the most of what each

area has to offer in terms of fall colors.

Saturday, my husband, Randy, dog, Maui, and I explored the area of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Graveyard Fields.

On our way to our destination, we stopped at a very popular waterfall, Looking Glass Falls.  I took some pictures there, but none that really excited me.

The first things we did at Graveyard Fields was visit the waterfalls there.

Once I photographed at these waterfalls, I went searching for the intimate landscapes that I truly enjoy photographing.

My favorite image from the day included some of my favorite things: rocks, water, and the color red.

I was thankful for this day spent with Randy and Maui observing the wonders of nature.

I hope you will take time this month to watch for the changes.
