Fantastic close up and isolation of key elements! The backlight on this provides such vibrant colors also! Have a great weekend Jack! Stay warm also with the Alaskan Cold Front heading your way!

As though the plethora of beautifully lit leaves are dancing around the tree. Detail and colouration here are exquisite, Jack. Have yourself a terrific weekend

Fantastic! I like how the leaves (and colours) 'pop' because of the backlight. Great detail and textures. Beautifully captured. I never get shots like this on our trails... ;)

Merci pour cette belle image ensoleillée Jack. Plus de feuilles là où je vis et la neige, tout doucement, qui commence à recouvrir les sommets.

This one gives me finally the kick to go out now - even if our day is grey in grey - superb focussing and light!

@daniela scharnowski: If a photograph encourages someone to go out and shoot, it has accomplished enough for the day.

Ok, now I'm convinced that you need to make a "blurb" book about Autumn, too. (After you make your Railroad book). Gorgeous.
