A Sleepy Hollow

“It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.” – Washington Irving, from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

  1. You have the most beautiful scenes to capture on film. That is a path I would like to explore.

    That path snakes along the banks of a small, but fast-moving river. It used to accommodate a railroad track — when the track was torn up years ago after that particular route was cancelled, it left a gorgeous walking trail about 20-25 miles long, most of which has filled in with small trees, etc. again. It’s an absolutely beautiful place to hike.

  2. Nancy, I’m enjoying all your beautiful fall photos–you have so much more color than we do.

    Blogger finally let me change your url on my blog list, thank goodness, so now I’ll be able to see your latest posting and remember to come over here!

  3. Beautiful! I keep meaning to walk along the old railroad lines, but it seems like in the summer, the four-wheelers are there and in the winter, the snowmobilers.

  4. I saw many beautiful trees like that on a trip to upper Michigan yesterday. It was dark and gloomy but the sun would pop out and touch a certain grouping and make them shine with color. Love the quote — so perfect.

  5. That does look like a beautiful place to hike. Almost anywhere that you’ve featured in photographs over the past few weeks would be equally spectacular tho.

  6. Nancy, On top of it being a perfectly lovely photo, it’s the perfect garden path as described by garden designers…don’t you want to see where it leads…what is around the corner? , Maybe another beautiful view or a scenic overlook! Isn’t fall grand! gail

  7. One of my favorite stories complete with a glorious autumnal photograph by one of my favorite photographers. Well done! Love this!

  8. Even though I’ve never lived in a place that has autumns like yours, these lovely shots of the world turning red and gold all seem so…right. Very comforting and beautiful, these celebrations of the world moving gracefully through its season…

  9. Your autumn photos are so lovely, and, for someone who lives in an area that gets very little fall color, they are a real treat. I just want to follow that path and see what is beyond. It is always a pleasure to visit your blog.
