Here are my favorite two that I shot today on my own personal Photowalk. Actually, when the kids were small we would always take numerous "Leaf Walks" and pick up all kind of colorful leaves and other interesting things that fell to the ground. Those walks were always welcomed and hours of good fun outside. Today I just went out for a bit because most of the leaves are gone and the ones that are still on the trees don't look so good. We had our first snowfall of the winter a couple of nights ago so all is on the downhill side and it was a challenge to focus on something other than the leaves.

  I also love that knotty hole in the wood and the lines and colors present. Great eye to capture that. The complementary green on the other side is very appealing and adds a lot of interest.

I also love the single leaf against the diagonals lines and colors in the background. Very pretty and unusual Phall Photo.

  Both are excellent, but I love texture shots and the wood calls out to me. Adding this one to favorites.

  I like the unique color contrast of your "Red, White and Blue of Fall".

  Debbie. This has gone to my 'favorites' also. Before I had read down through the comments and your explanation I was, for a second or two, puzzling over the title and through a thought process that will possibly baffle some folk I found myself saying one of Winston Churchill's famous quotes.
" ...a riddle, within a mystery; wrapped in an enigma". He was referring to the cold war Russians and how we could never understand their thinking.

I recently opened my e-mail and found an announcement from Better Photo that the month of November award winners were basking in the glory of finding their name beside their beautiful entry. CONGRATULATIONS!
