The First Breath of Winter

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area we are at sea level, so we don’t get snow. But fall can sometimes be short lived and move directly into fallen leaves, fallen temperatures and lots of rain. And fog, of course, but then we can have fog in almost any season. I put this photo through a filter to emphasize how cold (for us) the weather was last week – uncharacteristically dipping into the high 30s F at night. I know, I know – that’s positively balmy for those of you in Canada or in the midwest or northeast states. But here, that requires us to pull out our down jackets when we are out.

Sunshine’s Macro Monday

Yesterday’s Post was on leaves and in looking through some of the challenges for this week combined with my photo library from the last two months, I have decided to spend the week on leaves. So here is the second in the leaf installment posted today for Irene’s Sunshine’s Macro Monday.
