Default Mostly skies

Autumn's approach brings East Tennessee some changing weather patterns, and some very interesting skies!

So I decided to try once again for some good sunrise shots up at Roan Mt. Forecast was for heavy rain, but not to start until later in the morning. And it was clear and starlit when we left home...

Between the downpours, managed to get a few shots of the lovely wet details of the landscape. Here are some very wet ferns & mushrooms, and some rather damp rhododendron sprouts in the lush moss.

Here's a fine old Beech tree soaking up the good rain, and some ripe fruit of a Cucumber Magnolia.

After the rains were over, the late-season butterflies came back out. Here are a Question Mark and a Northern Pearly Eye.

Hope you enjoyed another rather damp hike up the mountain! Looking forward to more, perhaps drier trips in our East Tennessee hills soon.

Thanks for any comments, critique & suggestions!
