Absolutely fabulous! This photo reminds me of my life in a cool-to-temperate zone before I moved to sub-tropical in Australia. Autumn (Fall) colours in all their glory heralding the end of summer. Congratulations, a beautiful photo indeed!! I tip my hat to you.

I agree It makes me take the deepest breath I possibly can. I fills me with awe and peace. I want to stretch my arms out wide and turn my face upward. Very special! It was my very favorite and THE picture that made me scream "we need to be able to share comments".

Pure inspiration.

Jennifer,
You have the best comments! I'm so glad that you did scream for the mechanism to share them.
--like I read this and realized that I had these same feelings but could not have found these words to express what you did so well Thumbs up
