Autumn Closing

Autumn has pretty much come to an end. The leaves have fallen to the ground and are crunching under my boots. We had a lovely little snow earlier this week but it melted before lunch. I like those snows when it glitters up my morning but doesn’t trap me in all day. I’m looking forward to a peaceful winter here on our “ranchette”.
Hope you have a great weekend!


 

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.
