Sometimes I need to just be quiet and…..
….let West Virginia speak for herself.

    Absolutely stunning,my favourite time of the year.
    If you ever decide to give up writing and farming,I think you could make it as a photographer :happyflower: Magic photographs,Thank you


    • Toph says:

      I found those photographs very moving,so much so ,that Ive come over all poetic.

      How I would love to walk with thee in the woods today
      Watch the sunlight as it doth play
      Among the leaves and in your hair
      And on return,if you would risk it
      Make me a Honey-Pecan Biscuit :hug:

    I understand perfectly, Suzanne. The view on my West Virginia mountaintop is breathtaking no matter what the season. But, there is something magical about the Fall.

  22. Mariah says:

    Take me home, country roads. Love this.

    Hey, I was doing the same thing today–taking pictures of the perfect sunshine on our colorful leaves. And dried corn in the fields. And tunnels of green bushes with red berries.

    You have such a great eye for composition! Thanks for sharing.

  36. Jessica says:

    Beautiful photos, it looks so amazing there. I love our Colorado mountains but we didn’t have much color for fall this year. The snows came too early for it. I have, however, had the pleasure of enjoying fall thanks to you and others posting their photos. So thank you. 🙂 I love fall, it is my favorite season.

  37. Nina says:

    Try this again after registering. I just loved this!!! I live at 6,000 ft in the White mountains of Arizona. We have juniper and a beauty of it’s own. Higher up we have Aspens that turn yellow and my husband takes me up there in the fall to see the color.
    These pictures made me feel as if I was there walking and looking at the trees and the color.
    THANKS :snoopy:

  38. Faith says:

    I am now a Mountain MaMa and it brings tears of joy to my eyes to be able to write that! What a blessing this state has been to me, just being who she is! Seems a little crazy to say something like that, but its the truth. Really nice pictures, Suzanne.
