This was taken on my way to Clingmans Dome for my sunset photo.  I was seeing so many photo ops that night on this trip that I almost got there late.  The actual colors of the mountain side were this blend of orange just after the peak of the change.   It was very windy and I guess the ever so slight blurring of the distant leaves adds to the effect making it look like a painting.
