Love how sunflowers grow in the summer. It’s something to look forward to each year. But what’s even cooler is running through the fields when they are taller than you. It makes you feel young again.
As I was taking these pictures, I was thinking to myself how fortunate I am to live in Virginia. Here’s what I mean, I can drive 20 minutes east and be in the most powerful city in the world. I can drive 1 hour west and be in one of the most amazing national parks in the country and see beautiful leaves like these.
Yesterday was a little unusual. I woke up earlier than my alarm clock which meant I left the house a little earlier than I expected to. I left with the intention of going to Manassas Battlefield but while I was on the road I realized I would of just waited in the parking lot for about 30 minutes before I’d see any light. So instead of waiting, I thought I’d just go straight to Shenandoah National park and check out the color on the trees.
Most of the trees are still green, a few had color, but I mostly saw fog. As I got higher in the mountain, the foggier it got. It got foggier, windier and rainy. I’ll definitely be back again later in the week to scope out the scene.
