This is an absolutely spectacular perspective and photo for "Trees" Cinda! Nice lines with the two smaller ones on either side, really well done.
Congratulations!

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.

Thank you for the kind comments. Smiling

The leaves have all fallen here now and there is snow. Fall never lasts long enough for me.

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

Thanks dirt. And thanks for the acorn! Some days the words just come to me. Some days not.
