While I didn’t really want to be up and on the road to Charlottesville at 6:30 am for a professional meeting, the views and colors along the way were beautifully subtle.
As I traveled farther down the road, the sun gradually came up and the colors became brighter.
Adding a soft focus to this photo really highlighted the red.
The colors of the cows added to the palette.
But my favorite colors of the day were those found in this tranquil farm scene … the smoke from the chimney, the fog over the mountain, the barely rising sun against the brown of the trees and the white of the snow … just lovely!
