Default An Autumnal Bouquet

Took two trips up into the mountains this weekend, hoping for great views of the autumnal tints. Had much rain, clouds, and mist, so only a few wide views, but lots of great "up close & personal" views of the fall colors.
First to Buffalo Mountain, which suffered a severe forest fire in May of 2008. The land is beginning to recover, and the young sprouts (mostly sassafras) are full of color!

It was very wet (we were up in the clouds most of the time) which made for some lovely damp views.

We were too late to enjoy the muscadine's fruit, but could enjoy their leaves, and the near-ripe pods of Poke Milkweed too.

And it looks like the burned places are excellent fertilizer for striped gentian!

Next off to Holston Mountan, where weather was a bit drier, but still mostly foggy. Lots of bright autumnal tints here!

Up at the firetower, a few tantalizing views between the passing clouds...
(Which orientation do you prefer?)

We did spot a young Black Bear up in a hickory, but my dogs scared it off before I could get a good photo! And then the rain moved back in, and the camera went back into the backpack...
Hope you enjoyed these little trips to the nearby mountains. Glad for any comments or suggestions!

As usual, your shots are all premium quality. (You know, I always enjoy your threads even though I don't comment very often.)
But since you ask, I prefer the portrait oriented view for it's gradually changing colours from foreground to hills.
