The colour of a rainy day
One of the benefits of this time of year is that clouds and rain help to amplify the fall colours. They also make for an unhappy dog!
We spent a wet and cool morning at Fintry Provincial Park trying to get some pictures of the fall colours and some different photographs of the buildings on the property. This old cabin is at the base of the stairs leading up to the waterfall.
We were walking towards the lake and the old fruit packing house and saw a red-tailed hawk high up in a ponderosa pine. There were some brave birds flying around but it stayed still. Further along were a number of chickadees, but I wasn’t able to get a good picture (and sorry, this one is grainy!). I am missing the variety of birds, but, as an aside, I have to say I felt very lucky a few days ago to have an adult and a juvenile bald eagle circling just above my place – that was a treat!
The rain made the leaves soggy, but it was yellow where ever I looked.
I had to watch where I was walking as I almost knocked over this marvelous mushroom.
The mushrooms below are so strong they sprout through heavy gravel! We have them growing along our road as well and there are now holes at the edges of the pavement where they have pushed through. The power of nature!
I loved this sliding wooden door at the back of the fruit packing house. Wouldn’t it look good in your living room?
I spent a few minutes attempting to capture falling leaves. It turned out to be not so easy for me so this picture is good for a laugh.
I’ll finish off with a shot of green, because why not? It was equally vibrant in the rain. Thanks for reading!!
