The view from my perch on the mountain

Even in the rain

A cold front moved in overnight bringing much cooler temperatures and rain. Though the rain is badly needed this may be a case of too much of a good thing before all is said and done. Forecasters are calling for as much as 5 to 6 inches before we see the sun again midweek.


Even with the low ceiling, reduced visibility, drifting fog and passing rain showers the autumn colors are still visible on the north facing slopes.


It won’t be long before the foliage is at peak color and I’ll be spending a lot more time roaming with Sam and enjoying the milder weather.


Today was mostly a scouting trip. I’ll be back to shoot this abandoned home on Swallow Hollow Road a dew more times as the leaves change and fall away revealing more of the building.


Even the golden rod seemed more vivid in the rain.

  1. the old building will be interesting to see once the leaves fall away..
    the golden rods stand so strong in their vibrant color, beautiful lighting rain seems to have..
    hope it does not rain to much.. and that the weather man is wrong.

    I love the softness of autumn / fall. The summer colours are so strong that I miss the subtlety, but from now till spring ….. These stroll these pics describe feels great, full of promise for more as the colours change.
    I look forward to seeing the old house “emerge”. and also find the golden rod with the strong contrast stunning.

  3. The abandoned home on Swallow Hollow Road ~ doesn’t it just have a tone of mystery to it? Can’t wait until you do more exploring. The golden rod picture is awesome ~ who knew such a weed could be so beautiful.
