November Memories

In November, there have been some unseasonably warm and sunny days, whose images in stark contrast to the snowy and bleak start in December create fond memories. In the third Advent week, I need to hurry to publish the photos before Christmas. The mushrooms you see are a scarce sight so late in the fall and so unusually close to the sandy and stony beach. Enjoy.

    Wow, so many and healthy looking mushrooms in November, that is really rare. But you mentioned something about 22 degrees Celsius plus, didn’t you.
    Tree roots are always such a good motive, especially the dancing group at the end. Photo number 3 looks almost like a dragonhead. And I do think the blue and grey together with the light yellow are a beautiful contrast.
    Our snow has gone now, we have had 8 degrees plus for a few days. I am not sure that we will get more snow before Christmas. For the last many years the real cold started in January or February only.
    Best regards from Denmark to you and Biene, stay healthy!

    Your ‘dance’ made me smile. I especially enjoyed the photo with the yellow grasses. They may be withered, but they seem quite vibrant, and combine nicely with the blue of the mountains.

    I love the perspective in these pictures which are shot closer from the ground. The old tree looks beautiful.

    Driftwood always provides a good motif, doesn’t it? Great pictures! 🙂

    The geese in the top picture could pass for mushrooms of a different sort.

    The geese photo reminds me of other photoes of geese on the golf course I believe you have posted earlier. I am surprised to see so much green so late in the year is such a cold place. Even in the Indian north, which has a mild winter in the plains, the grass starts withering by early December with the lack of sunlight.
