Just a few reflections today, from the beaver pond I posted pictures of yesterday. These December skies are so gloomy if there's no sun that everything looks dark. We're entering the darkest two weeks of the year, when the sun seems to rise only a short bit above the southern horizon, but in only 10 days we'll pass the winter solstice and the days will start getting longer!!
I'm longing for some brighter colours to photograph, but I'm beginning to appreciate the subtle shades of brown, grey and dark green that are marking this strange late fall/early winter season. Walked one hour + 15 minutes with the dog today; for 20 minutes of that she was off her leash romping and sniffing her way through the woods.
