Hello Genie, I removed my original post because I had asked a "question idiote." I inquired about the crosses on the three graves, before I read your caption "Russian Orthodox Cemetery." Beautiful shot. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Were they crunchy?

Mother nature always inspires me. There is nothing more beautiful than the season changes and the simple look of falling leaves upon a path. (Even in a cemetary)

Gorgeous image!

I was tempted to lie down on these golden leaves and make a "ginko angel" flapping my arms and legs. There was no one else in the cemetery that day, but Peter might have thought I was a bit "audacious." Hah!

Bises,
Genie

Follow the Yellow Leafed Road ... and ... We're off to visit Paris, the wonderful City of Light!

Gorgeous! I will be intrepid and make angels with you.

Bisous et bon weekend ...

So, this is what the poets mean when they write about "carpets of gold." Beautiful.
