Gleaming

It's turned cool, and damp; misty rain at times, and the air has an eerie quality to it. Things seem to shimmer and glow. The few bright spots of colour left are startling, but the palate is changing to the muted tones of November. The earths' bones are becoming vivid as she sheds her fall plumage.

    1. It really is gorgeous here in the fall, from the blazing beauty that comes early to the soft raher melancholy tone of now, and the light is deeply slanted, thanks Noela!
