Monticello in Autumn - Landscape Photography by Josiah Friberg

Monticello is one of my favorite places in America because of both the neoclassical architecture and because of the picturesque setting upon a gorgeous mountain. It is a National Historic Landmark just outside Charlottesville, Virginia, United States. It was the estate of Thomas Jefferson, the principal author of the United States Declaration of Independence, third President of the United States, and founder of the University of Virginia; it is also, at his direction, the site of Jefferson's burial place. I just love the surrounding trees, orchards, flower gardens, lawn and walkways, and the extensive vegetable garden. Of course, it is the person of Thomas Jefferson that I admire as one of the greatest Founding Fathers of our nation. I highly respect his views on liberty, self-government, God-given rights, and binding down the three branches of the federal government with the chains of the U.S. Constitution.
