Beautiful foliage ~ and yes, it's a wonderful work of art.

quilly said...

This photo caused me to catch my breath, and then sigh.

Exquisite. Nobody paints quite like God.

Rose said...

This makes me homesick...just to look out and see the mountains! Even when I lived among them, I could never drink in the view enough.

marian said...

nature in it's splendour.. a perfect RT pic.

Rona Michelson said...

The last autumn I was in the US, we went to West Point and sat looking at the trees along the Hudson River. What a lovely reminder!

Ralph said...

What is so beautiful is when the multi-colors of Fall are sitting on trees in the hills of the Mountaineer State. The colors climb up toward heaven, the amount of foliage and colors appear as if on a quilt. Beautiful!

Tom said...

Wow Carletta this is a good view.

We have yet to get such beauty, but we are getting there... we lack the reds and orange.

Mimi said...

Gorgeous piece of art! specially appreciated since I live in a pine tree area, and they are always ... only green!!
Happy Ruby Tuesday, mine is here.

Robin said...

So beautiful. I wish we had fall colors. (Is there any way to have them without actually having fall and winter? If so count me in.)

Ann said...

You are right, no one paints as well as God.

It's a beautiful sight.

God's pallette rules! And so does this photo--great capture.
Sadly we're not having so much color this year; still lots-o-green and some yellow. Beauty all the same. Thanks for sharing yours!

Coffeedoff said...

That is beautiful!

Stephanie V said...

Wonderful! West Virginia must be really beautiful right now.

Painting He is. I love the fall flowers, but am not too excited for the rain that follows in the Northwest. Thanks for sharing.

Amanda said...

He certainly has been painting trees Carletta that is amazing! I would love to live in a place that had that much seasonal color. We get color here in So Cal when decorations go up not from foliage!

kaye said...

and he is the best. Beautiful picture.

Sheress said...

This would look beautiful on my wall within a cherry wood frame.

Iowa Gardening Woman said...

And there is no better artist!

The Cunning Runt said...

I love this.

Some characteristic of bare branches has always appeared to me as blue, and combines with the deeper reds to give the illusion of purple.

I wait all year for it.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

O forest afire
with golden flames and crimson,
you offer your heart.

My Ruby Tuesday

James said...

WOW! That is such a great picture.

Gattina said...

The picture is very color and beautiful. But fall announces the end of summer and that is so sad for me !

Judy said...

And I thought the fall colours looked good on the flats around here...
On the hillside they are just incredible!!!

George said...

God has been doing a masterful job, hasn't He?

Gel said...

Too beautiful for words!

dot said...
