The last hold-outs of fall. There is such quiet beauty here.

One tiny part of the world and all that beauty.

This is one of my favorite fall photos I've seen this year..

I think I like this one even better than the last one. Even though there are fewer red leaves, the shape of the tree is more interesting and makes for a better composition. Nice work (as always!).

Your photography is very beautiful. I really like the way you capture the natural beauty of PA. I've bookmarked your site. I keep coming back again and again.

This is perhaps the most beautiful picture of a tree I have ever seen! The balance and intensity of the colors, the fog, the clarity and shape of the tree, and all framed in perfect proportions. Simply amazing work!!

And I love that splash of yellow and green. So pretty still!

You perfectly capture the season of fall...

Very delicate. As the trees fade into the mist, they appear more like multiple exposure layers with opacity reduction increasing with each added layer. Without the leaves, this image becomes an abstract of contorted linear blues and blacks, but the leaves remind me that this is just another marvelously romanticized, forest fantasy--commonly to be found on an autumn walk though Durham Township.

Just another great walk, thank you.

Love the rich colors set against those dark tree trunks. The fogs adds such a mystical feeling. Very beautiful Kathleen!

Very nice contrast of the saturated colors against the darker tree bark and the lighter fog.
