Reflecting on autumn

"I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it." [Lee Maynard]

“No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face.” [John Donne]

“There is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of autumn leaves.”  [Joe L. Wheeler]

“Time remorselessly rambles down the corridors and streets of our lives, but it is not until autumn that most of us become aware that our tickets are stamped with a terminal destination.” [Joe L. Wheeler]

Your fall photos are so beautiful. I love the colors. I hope I didn't miss peak at home. Hubby is picking me up today for the 2 hr ride home. My knee is flexible enough to get in and out of the vehicle. I am anxious to get back to 'my woods'. My bed, my chair, and my well water.

Rick, every time I see your work I think of the following:
HE leads me beside still waters, HE restores my soul!!!
Awesome pics! You always seem to have a picture in a picture! Living in the Deep South, fall is still a little ways off. Thanks for bringing it a little early to those of us who are still dealing with the last vestiges of summer!

Hi Rick,
usually, the end of summer makes us very sad, but your unique images make the autumn seem like a miracle.

"Time remorselessly rambles" - love it! You still seem to have quite a lot of wildflowers around in the fall.

Hi Rick, all the scenery are exceptionally beautiful and spectaculars. And your photography skill is EXCELLENT! It's not the camera but the person behind the camera is more important to capture a good picture. Keep up the good job. Thanks for sharing with us.
