    Gorgeous scenery! Love the contrast between that cool mountain ridge and the richer deeper colors of the valley!

  • Thank you, Joanne. I guess the valley hadn’t lost the Autumn color completely like the mountain range had.

    One of my favorite places to paint, Jane you have captured it beautifully on this cold winter day! What another great photo filled with such mood!

  • Thank you Ckeefer! Thank you too for introducing me to this area and having a plein air session here. Am glad you joined Red Bubble and hope you will post some of your beautiful landscape paintings.

    Beautiful image Jane. I always wondered what the Blue Ridge Mountains look like

  • Thank you, NautilusBlue!!! Hope you will visit the Blue Ridge Mountains some day. There is a lovely and scenic road that goes through them for maybe 350 mi or so called the Blue Ridge Parkway. The road has a speed limit of about 45 mph and no billboards or commercial trucks. It is very popular for tourists and sightseers.
    PS-I found that I posted this as an add comment rather than reply to sender so sorry it is a little late getting to you.
