Well .. you've made me want to walk down this trail despite my childhood fear that yellow leaves want to eat me ... decades of therapy have failed to do what you have done in a fraction of a second of exposure time

you were born to this .. you are a healer ... I owe you my life, my freedom .. but all I have is this half eaten twinkie ..

here .. I want you to have it

An absolutely perfect shot of a perfect day in the perfect Autumn woods. Wish I'd been there to enjoy all this beauty first hand !

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood" - Can't help feel but this is one of the roads.

Wonderful shot, love how you have light where it's hitting a point ahead on the path, bringing you forward into the image.

Ahhh, the road less travled. The entrance may not be pretty, not promising of much adventure or pleasure, but once you are far long it, what peace and joy and happiness can be found in it's beauty!

Great Great Great, (Did I mention?) great picture! It's similar to my Peaceful Path, but better. I love fall colors and the look of the trail just makes you want to be there and explore and breath in the crisp fall air! HHhhmmmmm! Ahhhh. Just beautiful!

Beauty is by design. In nature, and all things.

Jon, this image is one of the most peaceful images I've seen in a long time.
The colors, lighting and setting all go together to make an excellent image. You have a good eye and a lot of potential. Please keep them coming.

Wow. Is this ever rich in color. The leaves as they lay on the path are awesome. I like the way they are strewen about like a carpet for a King or Queen to walk upon. Oh my, but I hear each foot as it crunches down upon the path and into the woods I disappear. Great post.
