We stopped off at one of the vistas on the Shenandoah National Parkway to take some photos. It was a great fid to see the sunlight filtering through the tops of the trees and striking the golden leaves of this tree.
This is a white birch that stands in the middle of Big Meadows in Shenandoah National Park. The tree is contrasted against the large mountain top bog that surrounds the tree.
The leaves of the trees were very bright, ad beautiful. The most amazing part of these trees is that they seem to be growing right out of the rock.
The trees were red, and orange, the grass was brown and orange, and the late afternoon sun cast an orange glow on everything.
This ivy was growing along the stones used by to create the vistas along the Shenandoah National Parkway. The late afternoon sun was light caught by the leaves.

Looking down the side of the Shenandoah National Park mountain range many of the leaves had turned golden yellow
Fall arrived early to Shenandoah National Park. The leaves and grasses were already turning from their bright colors to brown. The sun was setting and casting a very warm orange glow which amplified the already browning growth.
this bright yellow and green colored leaf was backlight which helped accentuate the veins on the leaves. In black and white, it almost looks like a white textured leaf, bt is a link.

This is another section of the White Oak Canyon fall. This section was like a small cove that you can look down on from above. The cove was in shadow but the many colors of leaves created a warm cozy feel.

I just saw this poor twisted cedar and had to take a photo. It was a breath taking view out on a small rock outcropping, and this poor cedar tree did all it could to grow.

The top of the Mount Healy trail offers stunning 360 degree views of the valleys and surrounding mountains. A very rewarding trip. The variety of colors along the landscape are breathtaking.
