Clouds Catching on Peaks

Just a hint of color on the high mountains now but they will be in full color in a few weeks.  These were taken from the Blue Ridge Parkway near Linville and at Linville Ridge Country Club. I love how the clouds scrape the mountain peaks and seem to get caught there. It meant for more rain in the area but the views were spectacular.

In this photo you are looking at the profile of Grandfather Mountain.  Hope you enjoyed the views today.  Please stop by Friday Finding Beauty and Skywatch Friday for more great pics.

I changed my blog background to highlight the fall header pic - are the dots too much or can you read the print without going nuts?  Thanks for your input!

How I'd love to be there when the leaves peak! The dots are fine to me.

WOW I actually drove those mountains while going to visit a dear bloggy friend in March. Spectacular. Two of my fav. girls live in N.C.
Thanks for the memories. I enjoyed that trip so very much.

I immediately noticed you had changed your blog background. It is really neat...I like it. So where are you off to this weekend. These photos of G’father are great. Been there many times. Hope all is well with you. Weezie and I are fine.

I do love the fog on the mountain tops and in the deep valleys. The dots are very pleasing to the eye and not a distraction at all.

I really like the new Fall look of your blog. Nice job, and as usual, great photos. Thanks.

Cheri...I have a Canon EOS XSi and love it. My daughter - Flickr Pokety Patch - and my son both have the same camera. Have bought two extra lenses for it...a telephoto and a 50mm. All of the pictures for the last 2 weeks have been with the 50mm lens on AV. I am trying to learn to use that lens to its best advantage. It has been a struggle, but think I am making a little progress. For every 30 shots I end of with 2 I really like and keep. Thanks for the kind comment
