Savour the season

"Come said the wind to
the leaves one day,
Come o'er the meadows
and we will play.
Put on your dresses
scarlet and gold,
For summer is gone
and the days grow cold."
(A Childrens' Song of the 1880's)

"A tangerine and russet cascade
Of kaleidoscopic leaves
Creates a tapestry of autumn magic
Upon the emerald carpet of fading summer."
(Judith A. Lindberg, Shades of Autumn)

Wow, Wow, and Wow! What an amazing series Rick, you've really outdone yourself. I sure hope you start to sell your work one day, I'll be first in line, well once I'm done being a student and can afford to buy things again... things other than a new furnace, shingles, hot water tank, wood, etc! lol

I love these, serene with a dash of surrealism. Like Wonderland.
Really great captures, Rick.
