November has been very pleasant so far. We had our first hard freeze but I missed getting frost shots. The first morning I wasn't out early enough and the second I drove past frost covered grass I wanted to shoot but was in heavy traffic and put safety first.
I have taken a ton of photographs on my November walks and this is a mix of several walks at Shelley Lake over the past five days.
I felt kind of sorry for the goose above and below who made a beeline toward me when I was standing on a dock.
Most of the geese were hanging out near the bridge where people were feeding them but this one seemed to spot me alone on the dock and I'm guessing thought it could be fed without competition. The problem was that I didn't have any food to offer it no matter how expectantly it looked at me.
I like to compare shots taken of the same place on different days and how the light and reflections make the same scene look very different.
It's been a rather slow fall in terms of some of the trees and as it gets colder I hope that we will not miss out on some of the color.
I like the way some of the trees have lost their leaves letting in a lot more light on walks. Lots of color but also more open spaces.
In addition to more light on the trails there are different views through the trees on the lake as more openings are created by dropped leaves.
The cormorants are back to staking out the pilings for their perches.
The are fun to watch and they look like they in turn have fun watching what's going on around them.
The lighting made the trees across the lake almost look like an artificial fire.
I thought the duck and canadian goose made an appealing pair.
It fun to me how the brightly colored jackets at a distance add to the colorful leaves closer to where I'm shooting.
On the bridge the stroller and jackets again add to the autumn foliage.
I guess I'll end here. Hard to pick shots this time of year because I take so many.
