Scenic Sunday #97: Evening in the Mountains

Late afternoon in western North Carolina. July 10, 2009.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

Our yard and garden has been keeping me busy, so I haven’t had much time to work on pictures.  As a result I’ve gone back to my archives for this picture.

We were in the mountains of western North Carolina last July visiting family.  The day had been overcast, but in the late afternoon we were treated to rays of sunlight breaking through the clouds.
