Down a Country Road




 Light came slowly on this foggy morning, slanting down through the trees...





and beckoning to us from the woods.





The fog lifted to reveal a few brightly colored leaves - 

early signs of fall.





It won't be long until the forest is transformed,

  but for now, we're savoring some sunny skies, clean, cool air and misty mornings,

and treasuring the dog who walks beside us,

down a country road.

All these photos are lovely but I'm particularly drawn to your second shot - you've chosen apt words because your perspective really does feel like an invitation to walk onwards up that path.

Hi Connie, thank you so much for coming over to my blog and leaving your lovely comment. I'm glad you like my picture.
Your pictures here are absolutely beautiful, very dreamy. They are all so lovely I'm finding it difficult to find a favourite.

Connie, I'm late to the game here ... but these photos are so beautiful! I love their mood!

Lisa said...

These photos and prose are lovely. I especially like juxtaposition of the large trunk to the little branch of leaves! I live just a little north and west of you in middle Missouri, but love the Ozark hills and scenery. We visit the area often.

I was back road driving yesterday after work & found a 'tunnel drive' like your 2nd image here, but there was so many trees that it shaded the drive & it was quite dark down the way... so I didn't get a shot. =0

I really like that 2nd one, so pretty =)

LeAnne said...

Oh, I love this...a photographer after my own heart. I would love to take a walk down this road. Beautiful work.
