Tranquility, what a beautiful morning and helping out

- Another tranquil photo from last weekend in the mountains.  This farmer has harvested his crops already, but I love the furrows left in the fields.  Not to mention the mountain range in the distance. 

- Someone is allowing camping on their property along the river (you can see campers in the background.)  What a beautiful morning that was!

- In Atlanta this morning the sky is gloomy - a result of Hurricane Matthew making its way up the coast (we are 362 miles, on a straight line, from coastal South Carolina).  Nothing good about this weather event, but I admire the people helping out others who had to evacuate from their homes, by taking them in.  My sister, in the Florida Panhandle (out of harm's way) is hosting beloved relatives from the east coast of Florida, until it is safe for them to go home.

I decided to reformat my photos a little, to make them bigger, so I don't have to say "click to enlarge" every time.  :)  Hope you have a good weekend.

I love the first 2 shots with the mist hanging around the mountains. What a beautiful place to camp!

I like the bigger photos too. Have a great weekend Lynn.

Love that early morning, misty beauty.
I hope Mathew is not as damaging as predicted.

Beautiful post. I wish I could have stood and looked at that first shot in person. Those furrowed fields are gorgeous.

Really lovely photos, Lynn!

The mist shrouded photos are lovely, I agree. And disasters seem to bring out the goodness in folks. Glad your family is safe as are ours in FL.

I'm always drawn to harvested and hayed fields, the neat and tidy rows. To me, they are so pretty in a simple way. The mist makes it even prettier.

Great images! Farm land and mist over the fields create such a great memory.

Well done Lynn on enlarging the photos - they are stunning ... lovely part of the world. Good to know your sister is helping out relatives whose homes are being battered by 'Matthew' ...

Lovely .. cheers Hilary

LOVE the top two photos. I was wondering where you live, to have such beautiful scenery. Georgia, of course. I live on the west side (The Nature Coast) of Florida and I haven't seen land like that since we left Indiana. I miss it.

Lovely signs of fall.

Mountain top living should be tranquil...that's why I like living here on Tamborine Mountain. I love the village atmosphere. :)
