    This is a picture I took while visiting family in Virginia a few weeks back. The moutain in the back is called Priest Mountain and had a dusting of snow on it.

    Yes, this is Nelson County, beautiful area of Virginia. I'm not sure whether these are the Appalachians or not. Thanks for the comments and the welcome.

    Welcome to ThePhotoForum, and I hope you get some sleep at last ;).
    "Insomniac" ...

    Beautiful.
    I love the light in which you saw and captured this, making the clouds this orangey-pinkish in colour, which goes so perfectly well with all the autumn/fall-colours in the countryside. The moutain in the background looks as if someone had poured a thin layer of sugar over it - very nice. :D
