I’ve spent most of my life in Virginia, so you’d think that I’d be used to the predictable aspects of living here. I know that every October and November, the area will be filled with vibrant fall colors, but I’m happy to ay that I’m always amazed when it happens. It always seems even more beautiful than I remember it.

      (While I’m on this topic, the humidity horrifies me every July without fail, but that’s a different story for a different day.)

      Here are some of my photos of Northern Virginia over the last few weeks.
