Fall Splendor

Reading everyone's comments on their most memorable fall leaves has me longing for fall colors!  Because we're more southern this year than we've been in a long time, the peak is not here yet.  Instead I've been browsing through some of my old photos.  The one at the top of this page is one of my all-time favorites.  Josiah took this shot himself, while we were walking through the park on his R&R from Afghanistan in 2006.  A few days earlier we had closed on our very first house, our dream cottage, and just being together after eight months apart was bliss.

This photo is from two years ago, and probably the best color we ever saw in the northeast {so far, that is}.  I don't even remember the location it was taken because it was just some little turnoff on a side road that we happened to stop at {our weekends were spent driving in the Adirondacks and taking all the back roads we could, in search of radiant colors}.  It was taken with my little point and shoot camera, and I think it is one of the images I'm most proud of {and it may look familiar to you because I just realized I posted a cropped version of it a few weeks ago!}.

Happy Fall,

P.S. There is still time to enter the Fall into Fall giveaway...just leave a comment about your favorite leaves here!
