I love the fall, but become sad when the colors go away. As an amateur photographer, though, I've begun to search for color when there is 'none', and though it is not as apparent, there it is!
Last year on a black and white day, after the snow stopped, I went on a photo trip around the area seeking red. I came up with some spectacular photos featuring red berries covered with dripping white snow, red barns, stop signs, red doors, red lights, cardinals, etc. I made an accordian book of the pictures and sent them to a friend. I'll show you those pictures after the snow falls here, but meanwhile--What does New England look like in November?
Bittersweet vines have lost their leaves and the berry's husks have popped open. Bayberries and other red berries, apples, crabapples and other gorgeous seedy, viney and poddy things carpet the landscape, feeding the birds and creatures, seeding the area with next year's bounty.
Look around! Every day you can discover something delightful if you begin to 'see' in a new way what has been right in front of you all along.
