November in Ohio.

November 19, 2011

November is the month that brown, tan and black begin to overtake the various shades of green in nature’s palette.

Autumn’s color show has peaked and is fading.  Trees have lost many of their leaves.

Honeysuckles are still colorful- light green leaves standing out in an earth tone landscape.  Brambles offer the occasional color.

Wildflower blooms are withering, their long season in the sun coming to a close.  Seeds abound to assure future generations.

Birds and animals are acting differently.  Insects are dwindling.

Frost is now showing up, though it melts off after the morning.  Thin ice may cover water for a while.

November offers a preview of winter.  It’s a long time until the spring, though nature has beauty in all seasons.

    This is a lovely depiction of fall. I saw my first white-throated sparrow today. They usually spend the winter here.

      I’ve been playing cat-and-mouse with White-Throated Sparrows this autumn, trying to get a good picture of one. Shy things!

    Love every photograph, I think because they are so familiar. I love the colors of Autumn, but I must admit that the browns and earth colors after the brilliant display is just as visually appealing. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I love the subtlety of nature at this time of year. It is all about texture and light and you’ve captured it beautifully.

    These are wonderful! It’s amazing how this season of fading colors and falling leaves can be so beautiful and full of life.

    Hi. I love those long shadows from the trees and the frost on grass and oak leaves. The first three photos are very desolate. Jane

    Beautiful series of photos. I always feel like I’ve come home when I view your posts, and then realize that it’s because I *am* home. 🙂

    Interesting lens flare in that second photo.
