But I can try!
2 weeks ago I was raking and bundling the leaves from these trees in 60 degrees F and thinking what a wonderful fall it was…NOW, we have this, and 4 more inches on top. Two days ago it was –20 Celsius ( or –4 F!)….talk about a quick change! Now we are skiing again!
Now that I’m looking 4 months of winter in the face, I just want to post a few last glorious photos of autumn in all its intensity – it’s really that I’ll be missing the color! I suppose I’ll just have to make do with the boxes of color in my studio between skiing expeditions. Here are a few shots from our last fall walk in Gatineau Park…
They’ve mowed the fields to make them ready to become cross country ski trails – the mountain bike trails will be smaller classic ski trails.
Across the flat and up the slopes…
Glorious color and shadow everywhere
Stopping to look at stuff…sometimes it’s hard to move forward!
Fern and bark
Something dried and wonderful and wintery…not sure what the plant is though
In the middle of the forest with long afternoon shadows…
Bad long shot, it was as close as I could get…nevertheless, I like the bad horror movie intensity of this photo!
A doe and her two clunky fauns…closest I’ve ever been..
And suddenly, we were too much for them…understandably!
And here’s my last burst of color for the winter….I’ll have to enjoy a subtler palette for a few months.
Back soon with some new work!
