Fall colors Fall sunset

 Hi guys! The fall colors are peaking here in East TN.

 Some tree varieties have already peaked. Today was the oaks turn.

 I love standing under a tree in its peak colors in the bright sun and looking up.

 The sun filters through the leaves and it is just breath taking.

 Plus it is a different perspective..sort of like laying on your back and looking up a lighted Christmas tree!

 These are in my drive way..easy just to drive right past every day, but some days you really need to just take a minute and take a closer look! I have seen some spectacular trees around town that if they were in my yard, I would have a lawn chair camped out under them and just be sitting there staring upward.

 They really are gone in the blink of an eye, I'm glad I got out there to take a closer look.

 My son pointed this sunset out to me  last night. Tennessee is very hilly were we live so we don't usually have the consistent spectacular sunsets that I grew up with in SD, but there are some good ones.

 South Dakota is pretty flat where I grew up so the sunsets are the sun sort of slips behind a hill and then it still takes awhile before sunset.

But today was a day to take a minute and appreciate  what was right in front of my face. Hope you do the same...have a great day! Til next time! Julia
