It was a moody day on the trail.  The day was Thursday, the Month September and the date 29th
It was, by far, the moodiest day that I have experienced on the trail
Sorry for the sun glare in this pic but I had to show you the wildness of this day, so windy, with  dark clouds, also clearing where the sun hit the yellows and they danced with the warmth laughing at the darkness that the clouds produced.
The sun laughing
the beginning
 my favorite moons come in October
The deep reds against the brown, my goodness
The European Larch is dressing for fall
Yes, the flowers are blooming in October
Watcher of the river
Observe the beauty this world offers, it will help you let go of the negativity
can you pick out the flower from the leaves?
If you stand out, alone, don't worry, others will soon follow

Unbelievable photos, the first two look like paintings. Unreal, all the contrast. You need to take a photo class girl like good singers need to take singing lessons.

Okay... thinking this is your best post to date. WOW. The sky in the top photo makes me think of Dorothy & Toto.

I love the bright yellow trees in the 3rd down and the vivid red leaves against the dark trunk.

The eagle shot sure is fun. You have captured all the glories of Fall with this post. Delightful.

Before I clicked "to post" my thought was, this is the best post so far! - and then Rachelle had already said that! These photos - what can be said outside of WOW. I am a cloud-lover, and the wildness and moodiness is something I, too, glory in. I want - no, need - a large copy of the red leaves against the dark trunk - it would be an amazing shot to hang on my red walls!! I could go on and on about every photo on here. Brilliant shots, brilliant eye you have, brilliant everything!

P.S. Yes, I can pick out the flowers from the leaves. Can you find Waldo?

Also... LOVE the last photo and your final thought beneath.

Beautifully poetic, Barbara! You are a true artist -- a Renaissance woman! I especially like the sunflower photos.
Can't decide, really, though, which of your photos I like the most. They are all just terrific. Liz Hill

Whew, just mind blowing. Hmmm, a class might be fun for you not to learn how to shoot pics. but find out what others are doing. Definitely not a 101 class but something interesting. I was walking "my" trail today and happened on a snake and thought of Rachelle :)
