Wildflowers on the Blue Ridgeway Parkway at Sunset.

The wildflower photograph was captured during the beginning of Fall 2017 in Virginia at the Blue Ridge Parkway at sunset. It was a hot, sunny, and hazy day. However, as the sun set over the Blue Ridge mountains, the clouds and a nice breeze fell over the parkway. The effect was a beautiful orange glow through the mountain range and radiating through the wildflowers.
