I finally had time to go hiking, and went up Signal mountain, Chattanooga. The entire trail had great views:

I am not as good at identifying plants as my friend mole, but i think these ones probably mean that summer is over and fall is beginning:

Some really interesting selective focus - and bokeh (what lense were you using for the close-ups ?) ! On the last shot of the trail I think Id' be very tempted to convert that to a panorama cutting off some of the sky and a little of the greenery at the bottom.

Enjoyed that series - thank you for posting !

Very nice series, Vole.
The mountain views are breathtaking.
I think those butterfly's could use a new set of wings!

Beautiful shots Vole. I love the jagged limestone outcrops contrasting with the beautiful, lush foliage.
