Few places are as scenic at this time of year than the Blue Ridge Mountain region of Virginia and North Carolina. Even in the foothills of the high elevation ridge-lines and valleys of the Blue Ridge is this true. An example is this photo I made recently. It’s simple in composition and to me the thing I like best besides the bright green vegetation and the hazy blue sky is the lone tree sitting at dead center. I know not why that single tree remains in an area that probably once was home to many others, but I’m glad it’s still there because it certainly made for a more beautiful photograph. Sometimes “simple” is best in photography.
