Bonnie C. Lackey 11/12/2008 5:58:59 AM

My neighbors have a tree like that - it waited until I had cleaned up my yard, then it dumped on me! Super late fall image! Have a fun time! #6744561

Lynn M. Whitt 11/12/2008 6:06:50 AM

Great capture of this hold out Deb.... #6744604

frank w. degenhardt 11/12/2008 6:21:37 AM

Deb- This is a look we have all seen and I sure many would agree that is so fasinating. That one lone tree that just refuses to let go, who wants to hold its beauty as the rest around it have given up. Somehow I think there is a message in that for us.
I think your composition and the setting is just as beautful as the tree. The capture of the bridge and the water of the lake, plus the grass is perfect and simply gorgeous.
Fantastic colors, lighting, clarity, features make for a exquisite and beautiful picture.
Impressive work

Nadya Johnson 11/12/2008 8:55:51 AM

I don't know what to add after Frank! He's a hard act to follow! LOL. This is gorgeous, Deb! I don't spot any hold-outs anymore, not around my house. Well I take that back; there are a couple, but they're very brown. Not colorful at all. I'm afraid the show is over and the door to the theater is closed! Until the snow. Have a GREAT time with Ann in California! I know you will. At this time of year, you will think you're on another planet! I'll be looking forward to the photos from you both! #6745285

Denny E. Barnes 11/12/2008 9:07:09 AM

Excellent capture of this stubborn tree that won't leave the party, Deb! ;>) Looks like you are going to have good weather in LA, so how about sending some of that sunshine my way..LOL..Have a great trip and don't get sunburned....Denny #6745323

This lone tree doesn't seem to be ready to leave the party! (Tree...leave...there's a pun in there somewhere, but it's just too dang early to think that hard...)

I keep thinking I'm done posting autumn images, but I can't seem to quit...

I leave tonight for LA to spend a few days with Ann first time in California!
