Leaves all winter long   6 comments

Every day as I look out my window, I marvel that it’s still Autumn and leaves are still falling. I love Autumn, which is more than I can say for winter.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Changing Seasons (Leaf Me Alone)   2 comments


I recently read a post about “looking up” with the camera to see what you can see. Well, I did, and this is what I saw. I hope you enjoy this week’s photo challenge.

All these shots were taken at sunset, facing north, east or south. While the “sunset effect” isn’t as noticeable as, say, when the leaves have turned fall colors, it is still there, just not as richly adorned.

Weekly Photo Challenge: BIG Splash of Color   6 comments


©2012 Cris Coleman All Rights Reserved

Here’s the last bit of color before the fall storms came in, blowing much of the leaves off the trees.

In the past thirty-eight years I’ve lived in Utah, SW Iowa and NW Missouri, this is the first time all the fall colors came together. It was awesome.

Spring is still my favorite season for two reasons:
1. Winter has ended; and
2. New life is evident everywhere, and not only in nature. I think people tend to come out of hibernation as well.
