I am so grateful for your kind words and I am sorry to cause you concern. I went into a bit of a funk these past six month...needing to be quiet to work some things out for myself. But all is well here in my little world and I finally started taking my camera out again this fall. What an incredibly beautiful autumn we had this year. Now all the leaves are gone, the first big snow storm had come and gone and winter is here, ready or not. These photos are just a few of hundreds I took this fall, but they are my favorites!
