This week has been absolutely gorgeous.
It is November, and we have had temperatures of 17 and 18 degrees celcius. The sun has been shining, the breeze has been calm, and the fall leaves are hanging on.
Last year at this time, winter was in full force. Our yard never got cleaned up before the snow because the snow came so early. This is what fall is supposed to be like.
What a difference a year can make.
Even the rocks are turning gold.
Pretty fall colours, reflected in the lake. I love the way the ripples blend the leaves and create a painted effect.
I could not resist photographing this little composition of contrasts.
The vibrant scarlet against the almost monochromatic background; the fuzzy-soft flower on the rock-hard bridge; living against un-living… This is the was I found it.
Frost in the morning, a leaf perfectly placed.
These two spring-like ferns popping up in a bed of fall leaves is a study in contrasts:
- Green and red
- Soft and brittle
- Reaching up and falling down
- New and old
- Life and death
It was a perfect afternoon for a walk at Daly Point. The sky was clear, the sun was warm, and the scenery was gorgeous.
I don’t know what I enjoyed more: The company (family), the weather, the exercise, or the picture-taking.
This is what fall looks like from my living room couch.
While I can’t say that I am thrilled fall is here, it does make for many colourful photo opportunities.
I had to do some thinking about this one. My first instinct was to go with a beach photo, where the water meets the sky. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the horizon does not need to be obvious. In this photo, the horizon peeks quietly through the long grasses.
