The Golden Carpet of Autumn

This morning on my way to my dental appointment I spotted something that I just knew I wanted to photograph. And wouldn't you know it, I didn't have my camera with me.  (I know Debbie...never leave home without it.)   So I wrote down on a piece of paper where I saw what I wanted to photograph and when my appointment was over I went back home and got my camera so I could capture it.  CLICK TO ENLARGE

 It's a lovely Golden Carpet....

Of Ginkgo Tree leaves.  This is the oldest tree in existence.  Well not this particular tree but Ginkgo trees date back to pre-historic times.  They are so fascinating and so pretty when all the leaves fall (practically at once) forming a lovely Golden carpet.  -  I had a tree in mind to take a photograph of but when I went there the other day all the leaves had fallen and the people had already raked them up.  I was so disappointed but now I'm happy again having found this wonderful display.  I hope you enjoy it.

P.S. -  Had to drive back by this same place not more then 3 hours after this photo was taken and would you believe,  they had raked up the leaves!  So glad I got there when I did.


  1. This is so beautiful! The sea of golden leaves--I'd hate to see these raked up! :-)

  2. What a neat photo! It is a beautiful golden carpet! :)

  3. omgosh are listening, but are you!?!? hehe

    I am so glad you went back and they hadn't raked, it's a gorgeous image!!

    And I am going to share a secret with you, and only you!! Two nights ago we went out for dinner, it had rained all day and I left the camera home. We had the most gorgeous sunset I have ever seen. I saw it but could not photograph it, but i will remember it forever and i so appreciate that i at least got to see it!! Now don't tell anyone. ;)
