Friday Favorite Photo
Quote of the Day: Our summer made her light escape, into the beautiful. – final line from Emily Dickenson’s poem, As Imperceptibly as Grief
I pass this gorgeous Red Maple on my way to the YMCA where I work out. It’s extra motivation to go to Group Power while this tree is in full color. We had gale-force winds in the Brainerd lakes area today, so I made a special trip over to this side of town to capture the colorful leaves before they all fall away.

Love that shade of red!
I’m looking forward to my drive west and north this weekend for the children’s writers conference in Grand Forks, ND. It’s always inspirational, and the colors will be like watching a rainbow of trees slide by on the highway.

Mary, I’ve met my match! Meet your friend and fellow tree-gazer and leaf-photographer. I, too, have pulled over many times to take a photo or two of the changing leaves. They are magnificent…and fleeting. We’ve got to capture them while we can.
I know just where you’re heading, and it’s going to be sweet. Enjoy!
Beautiful tree and photo!
We try to nip off to the NC mountains, if we have a chance. Enjoy your conference!
Here in New England, the fall colors are everywhere. Even a walk through the neighborhood is filled with them, with mums and cornstalks on front door steps and changing foliage everywhere. What a palette of color!
I LOVE ED’s writings. The funny thing is, as I’ve grown-up…um, gotten older, I see more meaning in them too! Love her!
And, that tree, wow!
When I was a kid, my parents used to drive us up to sky line drive, which is in the blue ridge mountains. Good color there. I love your red leaves.
I loved your Friday Photo…it so reminds me of the big old maple tree in our backyard when I was just a young chicklett!
Beautiful pictures sweetie!
God bless ya and have a fantastic weekend! :o)
We won’t see that kind of color for weeks!
Your photography is beautiful! I want to see more!
Love the pics…Have a great time at the conference!
