Living Gold~


Walking under a canopy,

of glittering gold,

all you see is light

and life.

A fairy forest,

in the high Sierra.


Cheers to you from the Aspens in the fall~

  1. Aspens are my favorite trees at this time fo year. Walking in that golden light and under that golden canopy must have been awesome. It lifted me today … as I wait for our colors to change in the next few days 💛 thanks Cindy 💛

    • You are so right. The sound of wind in the trees in the mountains in every season is so incredibly beautiful, but the quaking of the Aspens is the most beautiful sound of all. <3

  2. You and Nathaniel Hawthorne think alike!! Hugs

  3. I really miss not being able to walk properly. Many of my formative adolescent years were spent roaming round the Pennines with my mate Andy. The Pennines are bleak but majestic, my spiritual home. I also always loved woods in the autumn. When your knees are knackered, a lot of your world disappears. But the photos remind me

    • I can well imagine the memories that last forever from a childhood spent exploring that magnificent landscape. I hope you retreat there in your mind when you are quiet. It is one of the wonderful things about good memories, they are always there to draw upon. I know exactly what you mean about your spiritual home. Mine is in the natural spaces too. I am truly sorry about your knee and limited mobility. This would be very difficult to live with and you have my empathy.

    • It snowed as we were leaving tuolumne meadows, and snowed all night, and then was sunny all day. The mountain peaks are still covered in snow. It is such a relief from the drought.

  4. Autumnal greetings, Cindy! Love the post & all your pics!
    Will you be doing a Hallow’een post?
    I’ve saved up about 16 street art skulls. Brrr, I’m becoming chilled, terrified of my own post!

  5. Sierra-riously, these amazing photos are priceless and will never grow old. High-5 to you, my dear friend.♡(*´∀`*)人(*´∀`*)♡ ✧❥✧¸.•*¨*✧♡✧♡✧*¨*•.❥

  6. It was an amazing, golden festival of light here, dear Cindy! 💖
    One of my first truly Fall photos I shared this year were yellow trees in a Cleveland, Ohio woods. Some doubted they had appeared yet, but I do think the yellows are the “heralds to Autumn.” Your whole post was simply lovely!! xo 💐
    Hugs, Robin

  7. Cindy, these are just stunning! I especially like the one with the yellows on the “ceiling” and the yellow drops on the “floor.”

  8. I just love those colors. Here I am sitting in Connecticut where I was hoping for a lot of New England leaf peeping and the trees have hardly began to change. –Curt

  9. Fantastic photos.We don’t get autumn colours in North Cyprus and I do miss them. But then I remember the cold weather, and am glad to look at photos but not to actually be there! PS – I can’t “like” your photos as WordPress is going off its face and won’t let me.
