What Fall Should Be

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.

Red and Rocks

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.

Art, everywhere.

Weekly Photography Challenge: Horizon

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.
