Autumn Colors

Along an almost dry creek in early December:

That's interesting because hubby and I just visited Whitewater Canyon, which is at the base of the San Bernardino mountains and it was FULL of fall colors, too...both of our areas must have had a mild fall, eh? Come see my photos on my blog!

Lovely pictures - contrast between bright autumnal and bleak wintry grey.

I have such a good time on *your* walks. ;-) I love seeing through your eyes! The relatively new growth on the old twisty tree, and the lichen on the rock .. hey, doesn't it look like a big fat toad? LOL Thanks!

Love the reaching tree and the puddle reflection. Still looks like fall in Dec in the desert!

Nature has so many layers, all of them beautiful and all of them unique.

Fall lingers in your part of the desert.

Beautiful shots... you have a lot more fall (and vegetation in general) than what I see in the S CA desert.

These are all amazing (as always), but the tree shot just past the bird draws me up and away. Love your eye for color and detail and your quote. I have missed visiting and hope to be around more again.
