Today it is raining and the sky is dark, but I still relish in the memories of yesterdays sun. The last week of November is about to start and it brings with it the end to our autumn days. Now, we will hold our breath as we enter the first winter month, one of many to follow...
But before we say good bye to the fall season, I would like to revisit the last three months one more time with the help of my Birch Tree. The magnificent tree that I can gaze upon at all times from my kitchen window. I have never before watched it so intensely, or noticed it in the same way as this year. Following the change of its foliage through the lens of my camera have made me aware of its beauty and the magical transformation it undergoes each season. I have been looking forward to be sharing with you its splendor each Sunday in the past three months and I feel somewhat sad now, when it is about to conclude.
Today it stands bare and lonely in the rain. The last of its brown leaves disappeared during the mid week storm, thus making it obvious that winter is about to start.
I hope you have enjoyed this installment of my progressive photography, as once termed by Hilary, my good friend and a very talented photographer. I look forward to return to the tree in a few months and take you on the backwards journey, from "bare to green".
