There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so
pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October - Nathaniel Hawthorne

Beautifully lit fallen leaf among leaves on a tire track...I wonder what that's a metaphor for?

We all fall, eventually, and in that way cover up our tracks?

Have a great week!

This is a marvelous photo. I really like the light on the large leaf -- soft but drawing the eye to the details.

OH, I agree. October is a delicious time of year!

This isolated leaf makes a fine subject for a fallen leaf picture that so timely these days. Nice one.

Apparently Nathaniel did not have To rake them!
They are pretty though, I must admit.

There is something very comfortable walking through dry leaves. For a gardener they make wonderful mulch! This sounds very prosaic doesn't?
