The Blue Ridge was under siege by heavy rolling fog during this colorful, early fall day. The tops of the younger trees appear to be on fire, enhanced by the thick atmosphere.
Much of the ridge in Loudoun features younger trees. Older legacy trees here are rare due to fire and disease in recent decades. Tall forests of younger trees afford great views in these conditions, especially when doused with racing fog. The photo was taken in northwest Loudoun County.
Thanks to the Washington Post for mentioning my latest show in Leesburg. Click here to read the mention.
