Last Thursday was one of those simply glorious days where the skies were a perfect shade of blue and the fall leaves were just starting to pop.  I had a little bit of free time in the afternoon and I just could not resist a short drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Blue Ridge Parkway Fall!  So gorgeous!

You see the Blue Ridge Parkway in Fall is stunning.  I look my camera along for the ride to practice some big girl photography.

Blue Ridge Parkway in the fall- so stunning!

I’m pretty thrilled with the way some of these turned out, especially this one!

(Thanks for the tip Jennifer!)

I am just so very grateful that I actually had the time and flexibility to go do this.  Taking Blue Ridge Parkway fall pictures has been on my must-do list for quite some time.

The color was just starting to change, even at these higher elevations.

I drove all the way up to Milepost 372.1 Lane Pinnacle Parking overlook and got some good shots.


At that point I decided to turn around and go back home.  I really want to take even more fall pictures this year, but I decided the leaves had not reached their peak yet.

I am very hopeful that if I go back up and travel farther in the next few weeks I can get even more pretty pictures.

I say it all the time, but I am so grateful I live in such a beautiful place with so many amazing things to do and see.

AND while I was up on the parkway I ran into photographer Jennifer Mesk who gave me a few photography tips.  She runs the Humans of Asheville Facebook page.  She took my picture and asked me a few questions for her page.  It was pretty fun to be part of her project!

Housekeeping note:  I just updated my About Me page and added an About the Blog Page!  Make sure to check them out.

Your turn?

Do you have fall color where you live yet?
