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

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

@Curly: Thank you very much Curly - it is easy to do on a good year in Vermont ;-)

Ainsley from Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Artists think they can put on a pretty show, but for me... Mother nature steals the limelight every time. The colours on display here are wonderful. Your viewpoint for the shot is great. I'm very jealous of where you live.

24 Oct 2011 5:53pm

@Ainsley: Hi Ainsley - well thank you very much...In order to get to Vermont, we must drive 6-1/2 hours but the entire east coast of the US has lots of similar scenery that ALMOST rivals Vermont....but not entirely :-)

k@ from Paris, France

I would love to be in such a colorful painting-like autumn ! I envy yours, here it's stiil too green, what a beauty you offer, and i love the very softness of the palette & general feel - it's a tender image. Tender thoughts towards you now ;)

24 Oct 2011 7:34pm

@k@: Hi K@ - Thanks dear friend! This is closer to our daughtwer Amy who lives in Vermont...about 6-1/2 hour drive for us...Here, in Pennsylavania, the colours are not quite so good thi year but they are stil pretty...Thank you for your wonderful commet Karine! I hope you are doing ok :-) All the best - dj

GJC from Kyoto (京都), Japan

An amazing display. We don't have that kind of profuse forest of color here in Kyoto, but more like the beauty of a single tree set in an elegant garden. Both are beautiful!

25 Oct 2011 2:59am

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

Wow, you went a the perfect time! This is so beauiful. Pictures like these make me miss the East Coast. Fall is my favorite time of year. That's so beautiful!

Betsy Barron from Philadelphia, PA, United States

really beautiful carpet of color!

karla from Omaha, United States

This is what I miss, living in Nebraska...the hills blanketed with the brilliant crazy-quilt colors of Fall, all at once! We would see all this around our home town of Buffalo NY. Here in Omaha, colors go by in stages, like a series of marching bands. But the color seems never quite so alive as in New England.
