Friday's Find....sometimes I think it's o.k. to put the tree in the center of the photo..I know all about the rule of thirds but in my mind's eye, if I see it and I like it...that's hope I shot it and print it..every once in awhile we all want to be the center of attention...even a lonely tree.

I know these berries aren't orange, yellow or even a rusty red..some would say this is not a fall foliage snap...but I say, not true...I shot them the same day as the trees, in the month of October so that makes them a fall berry...I'm putting them in this post because they remind me that the holiday season is coming and because I just plan like the way they made me feel when I found them...happy...isn't that what Friday Finds are suppose to do...

Oh that horizon, so far away.  Sometimes we have to go far and wide to get our joy back...but the horizon is always there waiting for us...the mountains may seem like a distant struggle but one foot in front of the other will get us there...we can never let adversity keep us down to long...break the rules, walk through some grass, get your feet wet if you have to...but always keep your eye on the sky...the sun will shine again...

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend full of color and light. May the joy of nature follow you wherever you go.
