Through The Gate

I took this pic a couple of weeks ago at Spadina House before the Japanese Maple had dropped all its red leaves. It is quite a contrast to a shot of this gate I had shown from the other side during warmer times (click HERE) but I still love it.

That is one beautiful, sturdy gate. And you did a great job composing this - the red leaves really pop!

So different Pat although I suspect this old gate will look pretty darn fab in all seasons!

You chose a great time to take this photo with the red leaves in the distance.

A very sturdy door.

So pretty, RedPat. I have a nice Japanese maple on the side lawn of my West Hartford house. Japanese maples and dogwoods are probably my two favorite small Northern trees.

Fabulous stone entryway and the red maple really sets it off.
