Oh, my … what a fairy tale scene! Such soft, wonderful colors too. I love this photograph! 🙂 The contrasts in your photos of the forest are breathtaking. The conifers among the lighter leaves provide a kind of natural anchor or balance or something. I assume the lighter leaves are maples or some broad leaf deciduous tree. Just keep on snapping until the last leaf falls, Scott! These make me smile. 🙂

Yes, dear George…like a fairy tale scene…still strikes me as unreal sometimes…so that’s a good description. And yes, there are some split-leaf maple in there…along with other deciduous trees, and the conifers, of course. I’m glad you enjoyed the post, George…glad it made you smile. 🙂

I love this scene. Having just returned from a very long walk in France, I can truly appreciate the idea of following a trail through a fairy tale landscape. Thanks, Scott. 🙂

Welcome back…I was wondering when you’d make it home again. I hope you’ll share some photos of the trails in your fairy tale landscape…. I’m glad you liked the scene…and you’re most welcome, Robert.

Indeed, Chillbrook…and thank you. 🙂
I agree with George, Scott – a fairytale scene– Into The Woods…? Beautiful and special! ~ Warm Wishes for a lovely weekend ~ RL

This reminded me of a shot from “A Family of Man” (probably before your time.) There’s just something so sweet about kids exploring out in the wild. Very nice shot.

I don’t remember/know it, Gunta…but it sounds like it would be wonderful if that’s what the kids were doing. Thank you. 🙂

A beautiful picture; an inspiration to get out for a hike.

Thank you, Shimon…and yes, inspiration to be out there…wonderful thought!

What could possibly be more natural?

Oh…I don’t know, Allen…seems to fit perfectly…

A magic wonderland of a forest with such a mix of trees, and what an adventure for the boys, a new discovery at every turn.

They had a wonderful time, John…thank you.

Yes, it is, Nathan…
What a beautiful place to walk. Almost looks like a magical place as other commenters have said.

I agree with them, too, Victoria…magical indeed…and a most beautiful place for a walk. Thank you. 🙂

A fairy tale image as was mentioned in an earlier comment. The processing is well handled, Scott.. There’s a painterly effect there that is so apt. Great shot.

Thank you much, Andy…tried to reduce the light a bit and bring up the color just a notch…..
September 30, 2012 at 8:03 pm
Beautiful shot, Scott, such a wonderful atmosphere you’ve captured.
September 30, 2012 at 2:16 pm
Thank you, Cait…and it was/is so wonderful out there…a treasure-trove for the senses. 🙂

I like that! What a great place for them to be!

I agree, Terry…thank you.

Gorgeous..some of my happiest memories are out walking with my family..great for you all to share such beautiful spaces..

This setting does add a lot to the making of such memories…I have great recollections of being in similar places as a child…usually alone or with other friends, but they are core memories of happiness and belonging…. Thank you, Cath…I appreciate your comment.
