Silence Lies Broken


silence lies broken
stillness split by falling leaves
summer ends in shards

  4. Brian & Tom: I love fall too. It always feels like a new beginning. I think it has something to do with the "back to school" imprints left on my mind years ago.

    Jeff: See, that's the trouble with procrastination. Some things just won't wait. Like summer.

  5. I like this picture, how the water looks like broken shards of glass... And the colors of the leaves, reflecting in the water, beautiful.

  12. Thank you for your nice comments, Everyone. I'm a big fan of fall. And it is a great time to wander with a camera. Mother Nature uses her best colors to paint fall here in New England.

  15. and begins the fiery kaleidoscope of autumn...

    But not yet. I live in the south and don't see this display, but I grew up in the north and autumn was my favorite season.
