If you think that I have a preference for shots with narrow paths leading to somewhere, you're completely right. :-)

Margie from Auckland, New Zealand

And you do them very well too! This is a very inviting image.
(Weirdly my post today is a little similar - but a bit more scruffy...not so orderly and tidy)

@Margie: Don't you know that every German has to tidy up the woods every Saturday?
Just kidding, this is a park with sustainable cultivation, our forests are less 'made up'.

wow -- another instant favorite! just amazing! love the lighting and the long straight trunks! i also wonder what lies at the end of this path! brilliant shot mate -- bravo!!!

@dj.tigersprout: Thanks a lot! These paths go on and on, leading to other fine views, two or three ponds and back to the entrance again. Here you can see it from above.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Wait for me !! I come for a nice and quiet walk to get a good dose of fresh air and sunshine in this beautiful green underwood before bad season.

@Evelyne Dubos: Hurry up, they will close the park at Oct. 31! Reopening will be in May.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

I would quite happily take a walk along that path to see where it leads, and what a wonderful walk it would be with those majestic tree's to guide me through.

@MaryB: You can follow the tracks from above here.

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

Beautiful shady path. Inviting.

@Laurie: The right place for a long walk. Thanks, Jen!

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

This is just wonderful! The sunlight is just marvelous on these leaves! Nicely done.

@Ana Lúcia: Thanks! We took advantage of the rare sunlight (summer was quite lousy and autumn most likely will be dark too) and had a visit there.

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

Lovely for a walk or bike ride. A sumptuous image.

@Michael Skorulski: Absolutely! Thanks, Michael!

Ina from Krugersdorp, South Africa

Exceptional shot!

@Ina: Thanks very much!

Ronnie 2¢ from London, United Kingdom

hee hee . . I have noticed your preference for these paths but it is not an offense other than in circumstances set out in Section 7c(pathlore)/a/19.

@Ronnie 2¢: Phew! ;-)

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Some similitude with the picture posted 2 days ago. I prefer the path of the previous one.

@akarui: There's a lot more :-) I like them all.

I have a similar interest --if not preference.

@Twelvebit: Now we're two - the movement grows. :-)
