Maybe what I miss most about not getting out to Schoepfle Garden these days is the opportunity to wade across the river to the other shore. I made that crossing September 3, 2014, to get this photograph.

I can imagine what it really is to see this live.

Thank you, Ken! I admit that I framed it to show how I saw the depression in the shale as a stem to the leaves surrounding it.

That one is gorgeous – those shimmering, strange colors, and the elegant shapes. (Yes, there’s always the archives!)

Thank you, Lynn. I enjoy looking back at the photographs I’ve taken over the years, as I’m sure you do, too.

That really is an extraordinary natural abstract – it glistens and yet the glistening does not over-power the elements. I am seeing Autumn for the first time in our new habitat since our move and for the first time I am feeling nostalgic for the woods I knew so well near our previous house.

Oh, do I ever know what you mean, Andy, about missing the “old” woods. We’re only 20 minutes away from our “old” woods, but it still seems like a large commitment to go out there when there is so much to do at the new home. (I still even have a few boxes to unpack.) I’m glad you like this photograph. I don’t know why I didn’t post it earlier. I hadn’t thought about the glistening as you describe it. Thanks for calling my attention to it.
