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.

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.

Took this image over a week ago while on campus. The recent winds of last week have blown most of the leaves into eastern Colorado and western Kansas. Glad I didn’t wait.

I love blue skies! So, after getting off the bus and walking to Morgan Library on Colorado State University campus I had to smile and point my camera to the northern skies.

Here is another image from my walk at the Arapaho Bend Nature Area this past weekend. Hope everyone is enjoying their leftover candy from Halloween Night. Strange how we always buy too much of it. 🙂
