Each year I promise myself that I will get to the mountains to capture the spectacular colors that fall always brings. Each year I somehow mess up the timing of my trip. This trip was no exception, fall had already come but I was out anyway. This shot was taken in the mountains west of Cumberland, MD, I'm not exactly sure where. I was driving along a hillside road and looked out at this idyllic scene and had to take the shot. The church was quite a long ways away...I was shooting on a tripod at 200mm. The trees are bare but there is a feeling of peace in the air.
