Thoreau famously admonished one to “simplify, simplify, simplify,” too, in ON WALDEN POND, and that is possibly the first and best step toward realizing “the eternity in every moment”.
Very good words of advice. Thanks for sharing that.
I join Brett and say thank you, too!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Dina, thanks for the kind words. Brett
Perfect! Thank you so much.
Beautiful- thanks,human! 😺
Thanks to you also, precious kitty!
😺You’re very welcome! 💖
i loooooove the colourful leaves of fall, of course living in british columbia, we have mostly ever greens, but i still love fall 🙂 really nice shot
I’m probably more partial to the leafier trees, which make a nice contrast to all the evergreens.
Ah, Brett, just touching. Love this photo to float with. I haven’t been to Butchart Garden. Must make a note to visit a friend in Victoria next month. Have a great week. Perpetua.
Gorgeous color and perspective. 🙂
Dor, thanks so much!
Wow!!! Just, wow!! What a beautiful pic!!!! I love how it captures the range of shape and colours of Autumn!!
Thanks very much! I would like for the image to have been sharper but I do like the composition.
An artist who is not completely satisfied with his beautiful work 😉
Hardly an artist, but thanks. 🙂
Beautiful photo and inspiring post. Thank you, Brett. Warm greetings from Montreal. 🙂
Linda, merci / thanks!
lovely photo, lovely sentiment
Would you be willing to have your beautiful photo ” Floating Fall Leaves, Butchart Gardens, Victoria, B.C.” inspire a traditionally hooked rug? Please let me know, thank you.
Thanks for your message and kind words. I’m very open to whatever inspiration others might take from my photographs. So, yes, that would be wonderful by me. Textile art is fascinating, especially because it has a functional aspect. I looked at the gallery on your site and that’s some amazing rug work!
All the best,
