Road Not Taken by Clair3Su3 Road Not Taken by Clair3Su3
Taken at Dunedin Botanic Gardens, New Zealand.

Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~Robert Frost

I really like the photo without the borders. :D It's nice and crisp, plus the feeling I get from it is very sweet and warm.

I love the colours, and how the right side is tidy with the leaves all neat and a tree whereas the left side is rougher and more wild-looking - make me think that the road could lead you two ways

I love the hues from the leaves...
They're nicely juxtaposed against the vegetation and grainy road texture :)

What a beautiful place! The photo is good, vivid colors, only a bit overexposed on the top, if you just crop a bit it will be perfect, but it's just my opinion! ;)
