From Brevard, Nc, take hwy 276 up to the blue ridge parkway, Take a left and go south on the parkway. this was taken at an overlook somewhere between Mile marker 430-440.
I happened to stop off the blue ridge parkway when I saw about 2 dozen photographers taking pictures. I got my camera out and set up. It was a dramatic scene looking over the Blue Ridge Mountains in the fall of 2011. The sun was still behind me so it illuminated the colors of the tress just right.
