People often complain that November is a drab, depressing month. Personally I've always been attracted to the subtle quiet of the landscape. Everything is winding down, the colours soften, the bones of the landscape reveal themselves.

There was certainly no shortage of beauty this past weekend. Thank you Margie for a wonderful visit!

I just got a new camera a couple of weeks ago and am feeling clumsy with it. Your photos are the most incredible inspiration for me.:)
