And then the snow began

When I woke up a little before Noon, I found that it has been snowing. Beautiful! I had fallen asleep wearing an old, short-sleeved T-shirt and lounging skirt. Letting Samantha into the back yard, I grabbed my camera along the way and slipped on moccasins, and discovered that the temperature has risen enough to let me take photographs comfortably without jacket, socks, or mittens. No wind…just gentle snow.


Last Year’s Leaves

Color and Texture

In our back yard, many different leaves cover the ground in late autumn. We may not rake them until late spring. With the winds and lack of rain, they may dry up and blow away. As with the frost ferns, fallen leaves form interesting groupings of sizes, shapes and colors. I enjoy walking through the back yard and photographing whatever catches my eye. Today’s wind, dryness and high overcast seemed good for shadows and deeper hues.
