Last Tuesday Betsy and I drove to Asheville, North Carolina, to visit the Biltmore Estate (we have season passes). Since we are beginning to see autumn colors here on the Plateau, we hoped we would see more color on the estate.
We were surprised to discover that there was even less color in Asheville than there was here. It was not a wasted trip, however, because we found a place from which we could get a nice view of the back of the house. The picture above was taken from that place.
It’s hard to get a good picture of the front of the house because of all the people and traffic. But here we got a nice picture of the back of the house with the water of a lagoon in the foreground.
I was able to get a closer shot of the house by using my telephoto lens.
