ABC Wednesday: O is for orange

I have returned from an out of town road trip to the North Carolina mountains where orange is on display.
I am able to spread out the fall/autumn color because the mountains are in the western part of my state and reach peak color a few weeks before the central part of North Carolina where I live.
Since I quickly downloaded my photos and randomly picked some orange shots for this thrown together post it will be a bit rushed.
We had an outstanding time in Brevard, NC as well as in Asheville, on hikes, and on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
We visited the NC Arboretum in Asheville where there was a lot of orange.
There were orange butterflies on the remaining flowers.
Everywhere we looked there were orange leaves on the trees.
Next is a shot of Looking Glass Rock which I took on the Blue Ridge Parkway today as we headed home.
Next are some more orange leaves on trees above a roadside rock face.
I'm going ahead and posting this early for ABC Wednesday since I'm not doing Our World Tuesday this week.

Orange is one of my favorite colors in nature. On the rainy West Coast where there are so many evergreens mixed with deciduous trees it brings wonderful contrast to the foliage in autumn. And as your pictures show, there are so many different shades of orange which makes it all the more interesting. :)

Outstanding pics for the week. The best part of autumn is the orange, for sure!

Gorgeous shots! Isn't autumn wonderful? I must say I wait all year to see the coloured leaves, especially impressive against a deep blue sky...:)

My favorite season, and you have portrayed it in its best light. You obviously love autumn as well, because it shows in your work. We just got back from a vacation in California (south and north) and were more "O"cean buffs than anything, so it was comforting to see these upon our return. Peace, Amy
