Low Gap in October

Low Gap is at Milepost 8 on Skyline Drive. There are some tall straight trees here that I photographed before. The Dickey Ridge Trail crosses the road just north of the parking spaces.

Note the reflections in the car window and the shadows in the third photo.  You can view what other photographers are doing at  Shadow Shot Sunday, Weekend Reflections, and My Town Shoot Out.

I realize that when I mention Skyline Drive, many people think of the mountain vistas that can be viewed from the overlooks so in order to not disappoint, here's one that's a 10-minute drive from the scenes above.


  1. Nice colours - autumn with you - spring with me!

  2. Hello, beautiful fall colors and a gorgeous view at the overlook. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  3. I hope there are some leaves left after all this wind! You got some lovely pictures.

  4. A breath of fresh air. The colors are dull here this year.

  5. Beautiful photos and gorgeous colours. Autumn is looking mighty fine. I love the Skyline Drive view, it's absolutely beautiful.

  6. The most beautiful natural Fall color! Our mountains don't have any red -- downtown does, but from planted nursery trees -- Japanese maples and the like. Have to travel to your area or further east to get this gorgeous mountain autumn scenery!! Thanks for sharing it.

  7. Nice capture of the fall colors reflection in that car window!
