I like this lone tree. It appears the background is quite a sight to see. Nice shot.

RuneE said...

"Nice" to see that it isn't only our trees that lack leaves by now! ;-)

Salty said...

Nice shot!
I like your composition with the tree to the right and the beautiful mountains and sky as a fitting background.

Good work!!

A beautiful view! I've been on the parkway once and would love to go again.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Nice tree and view, tree looks so lonely tho, no leaves )-: but i guess they all are starting to look like that.

Laurie said...

That tree has a wonderful view to enjoy.

I love the simplicity of this one.

mon@rch said...

very cool shot! I love the hills in the background!

Paulie said...

Beautiful photo! That blue sky is perfect background for the tree silhouette in fall. I wonder what that tree would like like in other seasons? I think it would make a perfect framed picture to have 4 in the different seasons.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a few words of encouragement.

Wow that is a beautiful view. I am so jealous. I would love to be able to get to the parkway any old time I felt like it! Sweet!
Thanks,
Wayne

I can see why it's called blue Ridge. Pretty scenery, and wow, what a stately tree!

Gudl said...

Annie said...

The vista views there are enough to make one laugh and sing and yes, even cry.

Willard said...

Great shot. Although Skyline Drive is one of my favorite spots, I have never been far enough south that it turns into The Blue Ridge Parkway. That area is truly a national treasure.

Robert said...

I enjoyed looking through your images of VA. They bring back many good memories of my working there while we filmed the TV series "Legacy" near Richmond. We had many shoot days in Blacksburg. I spend many of my days off travelling the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thanks for sharing. I've added your blog to my feed reader.Birdwalking Photo Blog

Great view, we were there last june on a cloudy day but it was still a great drive.

Andrea said...

Beautiful view and that rock wall is gorgeous.

Lynette said...

Stunning is right. Wow. And I absolutely adore your first bark photo. Wow again.

Thanks for visiting my blogs.

Alyssa said...

I'm really enjoying your photos. You have an artist's eye for the beautiful and unique in our world.
Keep it up!

Nice framing Kerri. I like the bright blue sky and the layers of mountains in the distance. Good composition as usual.

evlahos said...

beautiful shot, wonderful lines. well done

Rurality said...

You have a lot of great tree pics... you should consider submitting to the Festival of the Trees sometime.

Moi said...

beautiful! we were there last Thanksgiving :)

June said...

Ah...you're making me lonely for Floyd already! :-)

June said...

I also meant to ask if this overlook was the one on the parkway just a little south of Tuggles Gap. Folks call it The Saddle, but that's not what the Parkway folks call it - the name of which I can't recall. Anyway, if it is this, then I know this tree and if you looked out and to the left a little, you could've seen our house.

Mike said...

I like the way you framed this shot Kerri. Nice job.

Andrée said...

bare trees are so fractal, so I love them. I've been looking for ONE, which is impossible here. They are always with thousands of others. but there must be ONE tree somewhere around.

Ms. Math said...

The lines of that tree are beautiful! I think it's a very neat shot - a singular bare tree in the foreground with thousands of still colorful trees in the background. Nice work!
