Autumn is currently enveloping my beloved state of North Carolina. Mornings are met with a frost lingering heavily in the air. Sunrises and sunsets light the sky ablaze and smolder into a purple flame along the horizon. Soon trees will be bursting into a riot of color: crimson reds, rusty yellows, and burnt oranges. The wind blows through outstretched branches and leaves dance like dying embers before falling to the ground. One of my favorite places to witness nature’s glory is in the town of Banner Elk. With less than a three hours drive away from Charlotte, it makes for the perfect fall getaway. The following photos were taken last year during the autumn months:

These photos totally make me want to welcome the Autumn season! Love the changing colors of the fall!
Thanks for the sweet words dear. Fall in NYC is really gorgeous too!
So charming! We don’t have much autumn here in Valencia and I surely miss it.
Autumn is the best season!!!
I love LOVE your description of fall. So beautiful! I would love to experience that.
Thanks sweetheart!!!! I hope you can make it down here soon!
Fall has a way to bring the charm out of everything with its magical golden light!!
Yes I couldn’t agree more!!! Nothing is better than magical golden light.
Gah! These images are so gorgeous!!
Thank you dear!!!
Just one word comes to mind – WOW!
Those are beautiful photo’s Andi. You certainly live in a wonderful part of the world.
Thank you so much, your words are so kind!!! Love the Carolinas!
So lovely! It’s still disgustingly hot here…no fall for Southern Spain!
How beautiful! I love your description of the Autumn. This is my second American Autumn that I’m missing because I’m the land of never ending summer-Thailand! It’s nice to see gorgeous photos of my favorite season!
Awww what a sweet comment, thank you! Though I don’t feel too bad for you because you’re in beautiful Thailand!!!
Very beautiful Pictures Andi..
Thank you so much!
Autumn, the season I always have to adjust to. Autumn in Holland is a lot of rain and not so many sunny autumn days.
Oh that sounds so sad! It’s now become my favorite season!!!
Beautiful. I want to visit just for the scenery and and take photos 🙂
Yay! I hope you go!!!
Autumn is one of my favourite seasons (well, there are three others too…), and these images are exactly why. Stunning!! 🙂
Thank you so much!!!
My god, your photos!!!
Thank you love!
I am happy that autumn is on the horizon. Probably my favorite season tied with summer and winter. I like the idea of spring, but we never really get a true spring in my neck of the woods. It is more like an ugly extension of winter. Great photos as usual.
Thank you! Autumn is already here for us, it’s still on the horizon for you?
Gorgeous and wonderful photos Andi!
Thank you!!! 🙂
That barn with all those windows on the side must be gorgeous inside. So lovely. I haven’t been to NC since I was a kid (my mother’s step mother lived there), but you and this Banner Elk Wineries are making me want to come back alright!
COME BACK!!! Yes, that barn is perfect for getting married in.
Fantastic pictures! And i really loved the wooden cottages and the ice glaciers….I must say that you have a mind-blowing blog here and some great pictures and videos too!
Thank you X a million, I’m really touched by your kind words!
Fall is my absolute favorite season and your photos prove why! Thanks for sharing.
Happy travels 🙂
It’s my fave season now too!!! I never liked it growing up, but now I love it!
