Photo Challenge #20 - The Colors of Nature
This weekend was so not the best time to go to the mountains for the Autumn colors! It was cold, windy, rainy and even snowed on us while we were up there!! Not the best for pictures either, as the weather system that came through brought with it a lot of fog, so many of the pictures I took lacked sharpness and looked just plain dull and fuzzy!!
This first one was my favorite of the bunch. We've had such a wet Autumn in the mountains that most of the colors are already gone. There are just pockets left! This was one such pocket.
I couldn't help but sneek in one picture that I took last year at the same time...in the middle of October. It was a very different kind of Autumn (with the colors holding on for several more weeks!) and a very different kind of day than we had yesterday.....lots of blue skies that day!
Another from yesterday.....some kind of red berry bush in a grove of Aspen trees that had already lost their leaves.....looking much more like winter than Autumn!
And one more, which was taken coming down off the mountain.....very foggy, but the colors were still pretty!
We stopped at a fruit stand on our way home and bought a bag of apples. Today we'll be making an apple cobbler!! Happy Fall everyone!!
