Mountain beauty!

I didn’t color pop these photos. I put a frame around the mosaic and thought that was all it needed.

They were taken at sunset from our balcony.

Mt Pisgah (the highest peak in view) is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and it’s height is 5,721 feet. It provides an amazing view that changes all during the day…every day!

It's no wonder that you enjoy your time in the mountains considering the beautiful scenes you've been showing. The sunset photos are spectacular and so are the colorful trees in the previous post. The park looks like a scene in a movie. We have some color in our backyard from oak trees and the yellow maples are turning, too. Have a great week enjoying all the beauty and don't forget to take pictures!!
