Code Red

Posted in Nature, Photography, Winter by leahyetter on October 26, 2011

I got a code red call yesterday from the emergency weather center letting us know that a storm was coming in and will lay down about 15 to 20 inches of snow starting last night through today. Well, it has been snowing since 4 pm yesterday but it’s only a light dusting. And today on the ranch, it is beautiful!

Here is a cottonwood leaf from those golden trees you see above.

Quickly becoming my favorite to photograph, the buck brush leaf.

These red leaves hang out with the buck brush, but I’m not sure what they are exactly. I have some images to share with you of them in the evening sunlight. They are so red and vibrant.

And as always, wheat grass sprouts among the brush and trees.

As you can see, a late autumn snow is a beautiful contrast with the colorful leaves. It is inconvenient when trying to get the entire ranch winterized before winter really hits, but the accumulation is not very much and tomorrow is supposed to be clear and beautiful. I think autumn will hold on a little bit longer. Here’s hoping anyway.

See you tomorrow with more sunny and dry shots of the autumn beauty.

    My mom says the bush you didn’t name is a currant bush. 🙂

    Leah, those vibrant cottonwoods against the crisp snow are just gorgeous!

      Thanks! I just love the golden glow in that shot. It really pops in the snow. But now there is wind and the leaves are leaving. Ha Ha!

    […] is as I’m still learning what grows out here in the hills of Wyo. PS: They are really pretty in the snow too!

    I love your photography!! And am now following your blog 🙂 That’s very cool you live on a ranch in WY. My hubby and I took a road trip down there this past Fall, stayed in Jackson and saw the Tetons, surrounding areas, and then up to YNP. Fall is just an awesome time of year to get out and take pics 🙂

      Oh Thank You! I haven’t been to Jackson or seen the Tetons but it is on my list. We are in Southeast Wyoming and haven’t ventured to far northwest. Fall IS a great time but if you blink, you’ll miss it! I was so excited to have snow fall all over that gorgeous autumn color though. Thanks for becoming a follower. I hope to make you proud! 🙂

      Thank you! We don’t have much right now which is unusual for this time of year. I’d like to see some more soon but I ought to be careful what I wish for. Thanks for visiting!
