Vermont Fall Sunday

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 10 October 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Sunday, October 9, 2011. Essex Junction, Vermont. Fall colours are very late this year and honestly, were not looking that promising. But the last few days have seen classic weather, so maybe there is some hope. This is a view from the grounds of a very beautiful local nursery near our daughter's home. Happy fall, everyone. I expect to be back in Pennsylvania around Wednesday!

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
