A Touch Of Autumn

The Ausable River, Pinery Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada
Click the pic to enlarge
The world turns softly Not to spill its lakes and rivers,
The water is held in its arms And the sky is held in the water.
What is water, That pours silver, And can hold the sky?
~Hilda Conkling

great that you kept the "debries" in the foreground. It ads a lot to the shot. :)

Such a wonderful photo. It reminds me of a beautiful song by Joe Purdy "Oh river, with your water so clear, I can see straight to the bottom where you stand so still..." At least I think I can see the bottom.
