The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

Appalachian Fall

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Monday, November 4, 2013/Categories: natural history, photography, environment

Timing is everything.

NASA's Aqua satellite flew over the Appalachian Mountains in mid-September and a month later in late-October. Fall colors were passing their prime in Pennsylvania but the oak, hickory, and maple forests of the Appalachian Mountains were in peak color. The distinct geological folding of the ancient ranges becomes clearly visible in the brilliant fall coloration.

What a difference a month makes and beauty comes in multiple dimensions.
