Green in the autumn, part two.

Technically this should have been part one as it was taken a week or so before my recent green in the autumn post.

I was on a local back road looking for autumn colour one evening recently. I found the autumn colour disappointing and the sunset wasn’t developing but I liked the way the low sun was backlighting these leaves.

The shot was taken in a memorial forest. An area that is being replanted with native trees, each in memory of a loved one. There are three in the area.

Backlit leaves in evening light.

Week 28. Green on grey.

A florescent green kayak appears out of the fog on Lake Huron.

Saturday morning of week 28 saw me down at the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. The lake was shrouded in fog, I heard and just managed to spot two Common Terns over the water when I spotted the kayak.

This is a colour photo, not manipulated. I was considering it for Monochrome Monday but decided that was cheating so it’s my pick for week 28. A few minutes later the fog had rolled in and the kayak was barely visible.

A splash of green.

Yellow and green in week 22.

Some Yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchids on the South Bruce Peninsula. A variable plant around here, some years we have a good display of them, other years we don’t seem to see many. This year seems fairly typical, no spectacular shows but plenty about if you look for them.

These are growing on the edge of a side road where the power company cleared the brush from underneath the power lines last autumn.

Yellow and green.
