(CNN) — Viewfinders are revealing a colorful fall scene for the colorblind population in Tennessee.

Millions of Americans affected by colorblindness could only imagine to see these stunning outdoor views.

But on Wednesday, the Tennessee Department of Tourism launched “colorblind-less” viewfinders.

The technology was installed at popular overlooks in the state.

They offer a glimpse of the full spectrum of fall leaves to people with red-green color deficiencies.

The launch brought on emotional reactions from visitors seeing the colorful foliage for the first time.

The viewfinders are located at Ober Gatlinburg, Big South Fork National River and recreation Area, and at the Westbound Interstate 26 overlook.
