Our house is in the woods and we are a short distance (but about a million dollars) away from the gorgeous views of the mountains. If we go up to the third floor windows and stand on tiptoe, we have a long range view. On the other hand, a short walk takes us to a lovely lake, and a little further from our house to see some of the most lovely mountains you can imagine.
These photographs were taken not far from our house. I love the way the evening sun brings light to some areas while the others are shaded. I cannot imagine living anywhere else in the world. You may want to click to enlarge to appreciate the color.
It has turned quite cold here and the entire South is in the deep freeze. We had a few snowflakes yesterday, but nothing like the Northeast snowstorm. The mornings are really crisp, and the sun warms us up to 50 during the day. Needless to say, our dogs just love the fall weather. This wonderful weather and autumn beauty improve the mood. I wish I could share it all with you.
