Dreamy

Yesterday I drove to Charlottesville and I wanted to see if the leaves were starting to change colors.  I had checked the weather forecast and saw that it predicted rain for the afternoon.  Yet as I was driving it started to rain in the morning and it was generally gray and misty all day.  But after I realized there wouldn’t be any sunshine I decided it could still be an interesting day.  The scenery was actually more dramatic accompanied by the rain.  I thought that it looked dreamy and it was fun to imagine where this path might lead.  I’m sure it was a path to adventure!

I even found a tree that had pretty autumn leaves.

  1. Oh what wonders we have been enjoying the past two weeks: Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and the last week here in the Adirondacks. Your post before this one sent us off on our trip and this one sees us at the end. We too, have had much rainy weather and it has added to our enjoyment of Autumn.

  2. How beautiful I love autumnal colours! We are in the opposite “season” here in Perth so it’s great to see these photos. I love your interpretation of the photo challenge too Meg – I wonder where the path goes? So charming :)

  3. Beautiful pictures Meg. I think you’re right, sometimes you don’t need the sun to make a good shot. I’d like to tell you a lot of things but our different language stop me. Have a nice day Beatrice

  4. I bypassed Charlottesville yesterday to go to Swannanoah on top of Afton Mountain, about 20 or 25 miles west of the city. As a matter of fact, I did a blog entry on my post touching on my trip. After next weekend, Swannanoah will be closed to the general public until May of 2015, and given the beautiful day, it was worth taking a drive from the Richmond Area to go check out the leaves. Sadly, I should have waited a week, as Virginia’s mountain wardrobe wasn’t as colorful as I’d anticipated it would be. There’s such a narrow window between spectacular color and no leaves at all (except for oak leaves, of course). It would have been hard to beat yesterday’s weather, though, and I got lots of really cool shots (until my camera’s battery died) of the interior of Swannanoah, so all’s not lost. Small world, huh?

    I just wrote a book trilogy based in that area. The scene is set between Afton, Earlysville, and Covesville, with Charlottesville sitting on the outskirts of the triangle. Given the fact I was born in Charlottesville, I am familiar with the area, so anytime I see an article about my childhood home, I gotta check it out.

    • This is my first year in Virginia so I’ve been able to enjoy all the seasons! Your trip to Afton Mountain sounds really lovely – I’ll have to try to go there next year… :)
