It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Light and Shadow



"Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in our own sunshine."

What a lovely photo. You captured the light and shadow just perfect. Thank you for your visit to my blog. I do not know what kind of turtle it was. You are probably right she probably did not like being watched. Have a blessed day. Madeline
