I believe

Sometimes you ask God for something and you don't know what you're asking.
Mahalia Jackson (b. 26 october 1911 -1972) the first queen of gospel music

there is something majestic about woods shimmering in autumnal splendor. yesterday while f and I were taking a hike in a nearby park we both had the same thought when we entered this spot of being inside a golden cathedral. I posted a couple other pics from yesterday's walk over here (when I find some time I expect I'll be putting up a flikr set)

I see the arch. Also suggests the Caspar David Friedrich painting of the ruined cathedral.

Could it not be that cathedrals just look like Autumn tree canopies.

"golden cathedral"- I really like that. And it's true, too! Gorgeous photo. I love this time of year.

if fall didn't point to winter it'd be my favorite season...still, it is the most beautiful.

This is so profound.

That is an awefully lovely photo! The fall here was a disappointment. The leaves stayed green so long and then it went down -10 C and so the leaves just turned a not nice brownish colour...

global warming? I don't know how they will fare with not having gone dormant before the frost hit...I have a feeling that we will be seeing some struggles in the spring.

Beautiful canopy, Mouse!

I agree with the quote and the feeling of being in a cathedral. Just beautiful with the autumn leaves shining and glimmering.

I do envy the Northern autumns. Very beautiful indeed.

Wonderful capture! There is a section in a county park near us that looks similar, you've reminded me that I need to visit it soon before the leaves are gone:)
