This got me to thinking about my long suffering frustration with trying to capture my experience with my boyhood playground. Here is a blog post I wrote on the subject. Feel free to add your images and experiences here.

I love the blog post and the image, but the color tones in the Shelton Lakes reservoir image are amazing! S-

Thanks for this wonderful topic!

The colors and richness of this makes me feel like I'm right there with you! S-

I was enchanted with the woodlands of Scotland, which I knew nothing of. I was surprised to find they still have ancient trees. These images were shot in the village of Killin, an off-the-tourist-trail location where a walk in the woods may take you to the unadvertised ruins of a castle, a where a walk in the woods may bring you to the ruins of a 500 year old castle, or a 5000 year old stone circle.

Of course I'm an inveterate tree hugger, and have subjected the group to many of my local images of the woodlands I visit most, my swamps. And I am sure I'll continue to do that as soon as I get where I can.

There's something about old trees that I love and these are no exception! Let The Tree Huggers Unite! S-

Charles Haacker wrote:Well, I've been slobbering over this one. Daphne loved fields and forests and rocks. We would be coming up on our 47th anniversary had she lived, on October 29. Every year we tried to have an "anniversary camp," at least sometime in October. It was cool and colorful and if we'd had a hard freeze or two then there would be no bugs. This picture was made at what turned out to be our last anniversary camp, 2014 at Grant River Wisconsin where it enters the Mississippi (on the left in the picture). Daphne hated to have her picture made so I ended up making a lot of pictures of her walking away. That's her in the left mid ground. I find now a lot of those walking-away pictures seem almost prescient. But we had a good run.

Better to have loved and shared all those amazing memories. Daphne lives within you now and we're better for it! S-

We lived about half an hour away for 15 years; my wife would pass this river twice a day, going to and coming from her teaching job at the university. The view calmed her on her way, to the benefit of her students, and calmed her on the way home, much to my delight. We will be 50 years married next June. Rivers work wonders.

Oh those greens! S-

I could kill a full day on a riverbank and not feel an ounce of guilt for it.


A couple of youngsters up river were doing just that. See attached

Here is a shot from last fall, taken on the dry side of the Cascades. From my somewhat limited travels around Washington State, this is the closest look and feeling to autumn in Maine I have found.

Linda, gorgeous, enchanting, magical. A great place of peace. Matt

Feel free to add your images...

I have posted this image in my Project 52, but wanted to share it here also. We visited Maine a few weeks back, and while my wife browsed a knit shop, I took a walk in the nearby woods. The late afternoon sun had caught the branch and leaves of a hidden tree. I had my iPhone to preserve the moment. Matt

Lake Dubonnet in Interlochen, MI, about 1/3 mile from my 96 year old Mom's house. I've spent many an hour by this lake, just watching the water and birds flitting among the trees.
