Some of the Autumn colors along an old stone fenceline behind my parents' home.  I have always been fascinated by trees, and the explosion of color during my favorite season of the year reminds me of my first glimpse of our blue planet while out on a spacewalk.  The contrast is breathtaking!  Makes the heart soar and the soul sing!
