Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We’ll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure. ~ Thomas Wolfe

  1. What a lovely photograph — the beauty of fall is so fleeting; perhaps that’s why people love this season so much! My South Carolina is a beautiful state, true, yet I still long for a colorful autumn every year at this time! Glimpses of it in photos like yours will have to suffice! 🙂

  2. Beautiful picture as always, but our North Georgia color’s are not bad either. Keep them coming

  3. Hi Maureen — lovely photo and quote. thanks for keeping me connected to michigan.
    although it’s awesome here: warm clear days, blue angels overhead, america’s cup racing,
    hardly strictly bluegrass free concert, giants in postseason, street fairs. it’s nice to have two homes.
    come visit! xox

  4. This is a spectacular picture–as always–and the quote–lovely and haunting as it is meant to be, each season, each time, stirs so much emotion within us
