Sometimes the best thing you can do is stop and just look. That is the certainly best advice for October in Western Virginia. The colors may be at their peak in the higher elevations but the color will be around for a couple more weeks in the valleys.

The second best thing you can do is set-up to paint the colors. There were some wonderful yellows and rusty reds in the woods behind the cabins. And there was the wonderful cool morning light on the cabin to capture as well.
Hope that you can get outside to enjoy the colors too. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
