November Photos

The Autumn Days of November are lit by sunlight approaching the Northern Hemisphere at a sharper angle. This makes for especially vivid colors when sunny days are paired with more colorful life at ground level. Autumn 2016 has been a fairly mild, late season.  The pleasant days have encouraged me to more fully enjoy the outdoors.

Large clusters of huge clouds have appeared in the sky this fall. A noteworthy migration flowed towards the south on the first afternoon of this month. The pattern restricted itself to the eastern sky.  Overhead was perfectly clear.

Yellow is a common color during Autumn, in this case, the mustard yellow of natural gas main tubing dominated the vacant lot adjacent to my home. The utility is rerouting the mains in the neighborhood.

The steel beams of a highway bridge provide the medium for local artistic talent.  This stylized Buddha was a surprise for such a location. I’ve named this photo “Bridge Buddha”.

If you encounter a tree-lined country path in the fall, take some photos of it.  There’s something timeless yet nostalgic about the painterly quality of scenes like this.

A gaggle of geese spend an extended rest stop during their twice yearly migration at Ta Ha Zouka park’s lagoon in Norfolk, Nebraska.

“Power to the People.” These electrical lines stand alongside one of the highways leading into town.  The way that sunlight interacted with the poles, attracted my attention.

The boundary fence is another common feature that we often take for granted.  In this instance, the fence is the defining feature of the image.

The twilight sky of evening, colors the background of a  stand of trees in my back yard.  I like the abstract quality of this scene.
