Skyline Drive Ferns

Uploaded: December 27, 2007


North end of Skyline drive in Virginia. There were low clouds drifting across the top of the mountains that day. I was in the right place at the right time. This field was next to the trail I walked that day.

Thank you very much. It was one of those right time right place kind of shots. Had low clouds grazing across the top of the park. This field of ferns is off a parking area to a trail I went down that day at the north end of Shenandoah National Park. #6034388
