All The Leaves Are...
Brown, pretty much gone, there are a few leaves still hanging on but winter is drawing near. I do not love the cold and snow. I do love the complex shapes trees offer when they are barren of leaves.
I look out my window it is grey, the clouds are hanging low playing peek-a-boo with the mountains. In my backyard is a lovely sycamore tree, just a few brown leaves hang on near the top. A good wind will soon remove the last of them. To the side is a ginkgo - all of it's leaves are long gone. They still keep me entertained, the rain intensifies the colors of the bark. A great time to take a few close up pictures for details. Sometimes done from my backdoor with a zoom lens. Not only protecting the digital camera from the elements but that way I don't have to put on shoes to go outside.
