A return to déjà vu

I've been keeping an eye on this spot. I've driven by it many times over the years and this year I wanted to make sure I captured it before it faded away into the barrenness of winter. I captured this scene about 5 years ago and was fortunate to have it featured on Scott Law's blog (if you haven't seen his work you should).

I'm completely in agreement with Lee Maynard: "I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it." [Lee Maynard]

And to describe this season I find it best to leave it up to the poets:
No Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face.
[John Donne]

Absolutely gorgeous, Rick!!! I missed commenting on your posts for a long time, and it really bothered me because I wanted to!!! However, because of the popup window on your comments I was unable to. Hope you are doing well, and thank you so much for sharing. God bless you.

wat een prachtige herfstkleuren Rick!
Ook mooi hoe je die kapotte houten omheining mee op de foto zette. Zo is het plaatje echt compleet!
Fijn weekend en groetjes van Hilde

Wat een fantastische kleuren Rick! Ik kan me voorstellen dat dit een favoriete plek van je is. Een prachtig uitzicht op deze mooie boom en zo sfeervol. Heel mooi gedaan.
