Hanging On

Hanging On

Well, it’s about 3 weeks till Winter Solstice. Thankfully, we’ve only had a couple of light snowfalls this fall. Most of our trees are barren of their leaves, allowing the birds and squirrels nests to be are easily seen. The few leaves we do see on branches are those who refuse to give it up and hang on, or they are the ones caught among branches on their decent to the ground. I noticed this group of three leaves from a tree above, tangled in the branches of a bush. They were easily seen as I walked by since they were at eye level. So nature offered this simple image, who many would not see, and I accepted the image.

    Personally, I like with the winter solstice passes. At this time of year, I find it hard to stay awake in the evenings. It’s 7:00 PM and I’m ready for bed! LOL I’m glad, though, that I don’t live in Alaska or else I’d be sleepy at 3 in the afternoon! 😀

      I know what you’re talking about. We look at the clock stunned with the realization it’s on 6:30 pm. 🙂 Now the positive aspect of longer days is shooting sunrise images at a decent hour.

    Paul may concur, but I’m surprised at how long the leaves have been hanging on here. Just in the last week or so have they finally started coming down. No snow though, please!

      Trees are pretty very barren now. I don’t mind as much since it allows more sunshine to infiltrate and bring some warmth on cold days.
