The Sunshine Tree


Come my love, play with me

lets frolic in the autumn leaves

and let our hearts run wild and free

underneath the sunshine tree

I’m telling you… I have never wanted to try and capture a scene more than this one.  This was one of the most beautiful, magical autumn settings I’ve ever seen (with my own eyes, I mean).  The golden sunlight shining on this golden tree took my breath away.   ❤

Most of the photos I snapped were over on the other side of the tree – that’s where the real magic was, but my lens kept picking up the glare of the sun, and I don’t know enough about photography nor have a camera that can do much more than just point and shoot, so I couldn’t quite capture the scene.  But that’s okay… I captured it in my mind and have it filed in my memory banks.  🙂


Plus, I also have this picture my sister took of me with her phone while I was in the moment…


Once again, I thought she was beside me snapping her own photos, but she was doing that ‘from my perspective’ thing again like in Capturing a Waterfall.

She’s the one who spotted the tree as we were driving down the road and slammed on her brakes.  I almost spilled my pumpkin spice latte.  Then she parked on the sidewalk.  I mean literally on it, as there was no parking on that road, nor any shoulder for us to pull over onto.  We were being totally illegal and totally not caring because it would have been totally worth the parking ticket.  And the spilled latte.  Which tasted all that much better after basking in the golden light of the sunshine tree.
