Fall turns to early Winter

As one season comes to an end there is the delightful anticipation of the next. I love fall and winter ~ the cool, the colours, and the crispness of the world in these seasons. Some photos from the last few weeks. . . David took these pretty Ruffed Grouse pics about mid October. Here's a typical misty morning on the meadow in late October. And a few days later, a golden sunrise on frosty branches. A flock of Sandhill Cranes heading off to gather for their mass migration . . . One of those so beautiful skies ... And our very first snowflakes of the year. We had a pretty good accumulation of heavy wet snow that day. It didn't stick...but soon! November's first few Sunrise's over the meadow. I am inspired to gather up my paint brushes and watercolours. Find a nice pen and some black ink. In the meantime, thank goodness for digital photography allowing us to capture as many of these moments as we like. Till later ...

Love the painterly aspect of your last photo, Nick, - bring your brushes along with you and we will try to hang on to the golden glow in the valley.
