That's My World Tuesday: Loving leaf laden lanes

It rained pretty much all of last week but the sun came out Sunday morning which was a nice change. After all that rain, the trails I walk on are covered with leaves which I love.


I used to photograph the light at the end of the tunnel a lot but this shot I took Sunday was the first I've done of that subject this fall.


When we walked Sunday, we picked a path with high banks along the creek because I'm sure some of the lake trails are flooded.


I was entranced by this little tree someone had carved out into a fallen tree. I wonder if it was carved by fairies or elves.


Before long all the leaves will have fallen and then the trails will be completely new again. I surely do love the natural changes which each new season and year bring.

I'm voting for Wood Nymphs being the sculptors. What a clever idea!

Sylvia K said...

Yep! I'm voting for Wood Nymphs, too! What gorgeous shots, Carver! I love the tunnel and the reflections in the water! Fabulous!

What a beautiful place to walk. Love the reflections. As for the little tree - of course it was carved by fairies or elves. What other possible explanation could there be?!

Gwendolyn said...

How beautiful! What a lovely walk you had. And, what lovely photography skills you have gained with such wonderful practice opportunities as this! I am in awe of these photos! I'll go with "wood nymphs" too, I guess!

We had the same weather pattern last week in VA. Nice pics. Wood nymphs---that's a thought.

Arija said...

Such great wonderf and the little carved tree not the least among them. It is so titting all amongt the fallen leaves. I too love the carpets of leaves in the so aptly named season...fall.

Glorious photos that epitomize fall! The little carving was an exceptional sighting! The tunnel and creek shots are magical.

Lawstude said...

beautiful concepts. i could only dream of a scene such as these. the last photo is so lovely that a painter will be inspired to paint it. great job.

Ayie said...

that's a beautiful world out there. The tunnel and surrounding reminded me of a japanese cartoon.

Ebie said...

Oh Carver, thank you for showing us these beautiful foliage and scenery. The series are on of my favorites, even the reflections!

Stephany said...

Great series of photos! After all that rain, most of the trees in Hickory are going bald.

Gaelyn said...

What a nice trail with the carpet of fall leaves. Maybe next time you're there the elf tree will be decorated for Christmas.
Excellent captures.

Indrani said...

It is raining here too.
The difference is I am in a concrete jungle.
Lovely shots!

Wolynski said...

Wow, those golden leaves sure make for gorgeous photographs. Someone had a lot of time to make that little sculpture - how adorable.

What beautiful scenes you have favorite being the little carved out tree, I think...such whimsy deserves to be on a walk like that!
