When you live around trees, you’re bound to see the transitions of their leaves, their fruit, etc. But even if you regularly engage in photography, you still may miss the best moments to capture the colors. Windows of opportunity can be short; I was lucky to capture some reds last year.
This year, the reds hit brown by the time I got there. (Of course, it’s November now.)
A mixture of weather patterns makes for a mixture of colors.
By now, the leaves are mostly brown and have fallen. And so have the temperatures… not to mention wind chill.
Winds picked up again, recently. Part of why the late October storm knocked out power for so many was that you had winds blowing in directions the trees aren’t used to. Some areas were out of power for more than five days. And then, a few days ago, power was knocked out again in some areas. People found utility poles “tossed” into the ocean. …Is mother nature telling us to stop abusing electricity?
No, the post office did not deliver a power line to your mailbox.
Blackouts can certainly incentivize one in solar panels… provided said panels don’t get covered in snow. And with temperatures falling into the teens this weekend, some parts have already seen flurries.
We’ll see full-on snow soon enough.
The Deering Oaks park pond was a bit “foggy.” Maybe it was the water level— low enough that the sand stood out.
I still have plenty of October photos left over…
…not that it would be a good idea to post them all.
Sky colors don’t quite count as autumn colors.
But who’s counting? (I am.) I suppose this counts since sunsets come earlier this time of year.
Sometimes it takes an alternate view to enhance our perspective.
The colors wouldn’t be complete without some of our own additions. Human nature is, after all, part of the big picture.
Soon it will be Thanksgiving…
…and then winter, where evergreens prove good cover for snow. …Provided they don’t collapse under the weight or more winds, etc. I’m not looking forward to another ice storm.
Well, that’s it for now. I have more, but it’s time to hit the pause button.
Until next time…
