Sometimes the common and ordinary can be quite beautiful when viewed under a different light, hehehe, pun intended.  This is a common milkweed pod and was taken under a studio light after some insistance from my wife.  I did dress the pod up just a little by pulling some of the seed out to "wait on the wind."

This photo was made on Roaring Fork Creek in the Smoky Mountains.  I wanted to get the sun shining through the leaves to enhance them.  The time  was about 3 PM in the afternoon and the date was in late October.  Late October is the best time to try and get the fall colors at their peak in the southern section of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Carrie likes to frame this photo with a little short story that she has found about a Trouble Tree.  This photo was made on White Top Mountain in southwest Virginia.  The time was about 2 PM and in late July.
