Sky, sky, Snake

I’ll post the sky/tree shots first so those of you who dislike snakes (tiny, cute ones) can skip the last shot.  🙂

And now for the adorable little snake family hiding in the leaves.  These guys are harmless and are so tiny, you are lucky to actually see one.  They move fast too; however, it’s always AWAY from you so I’m all good with them. 🙂

The colours fade

Fall 2017 - 1005

There’s such a beautiful array of colours around here in the fall but it is always such a fleeting thing.  There are usually three or four good weekends between

*Everything is still green with only a little splash of colour showing through* to *everything is dead and/or covered in snow* in a matter of days.

The snow IS beautiful to photograph and being out of the city allows for many nice shots of snow piled atop leaves and branches that haven’t been disturbed by humans.  Ice storms are, although terrifying and dangerous, spectacular when a chance to capture an entire everything encased in glass/ice comes along, but, everything considered, winter is really just a lot of white balancing with the camera and dead looking trees.  There’s still a ton of beauty out there though – it just takes a bit of patience and some warm boots to find.  🙂

…and then it was winter

As will happen here where I live, we went to bed one night an it was a lovely fall evening.  We woke the next morning at it was below freezing and our winter had arrived.  (Good thing?  All the leaves we didn’t manage to rake up are now covered by snow! It’s the adult equivalent of hiding crap under your bed so you don’t really have to clean your room!)
