It's a WonderFall Life: A Tribute


{The soothing and serene scenes of Hebron Rock colony}

Fall

The woods were made for the hunters of dreams,

Soothing

The brooks for the fishers of song;

Serene

To the hunters who hunt for the gunless game

Fall Scene

The streams and the woods belong.

Hebron Rock Colony

~Sam Walter Foss~

Fall Dam

Don't know when I will
be ready to say farewell
Bittersweet goodbye.

Hebron Rock Colony is a very interesting place.
Rock hopping the boulder strewn ravine is fun, but it can be tricky.
Although, the hard work really pays off with its many great features.
It's one of my most favorite not-so-secret places to go around Boone.
This particular day was my first time venturing there during fall.
It was especially beautiful with the warm tones reflecting off the calm pools.
I so awfully miss those long, golden, breezy days....I need a little sunshine.
Aside from a few yellow-leaved trees, our colors have faded here in the high country.
Thank goodness I saved some fall photos for this fall withdraw I'm having.

  5. You don't know how much I needed the complete escape into beauty that these photos gave me. What a set of perfection, WW. Where I love all of them I must say that the last two are so beautiful they brought tears to my eyes. Of the two if I had to choose a fave it would be the final one. It goes perfectly with the prose. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this post.

  13. Beautiful.
    We lost a lot of our best fall colors pretty early this year. I am saddened that I didn't get to capture as many. Love the waterfalls. Spectacular.

  17. seems we have all been enjoying this autumn season and it's so cool to be able to see what others see - everyone sharing the beauty in their part of the country. Your photos are especially nice and the waterfall shots magnificent. Sad to say goodbye to fall but winter can offer us beauty as well.
