this was November in Saskatchewan

At the beginning of the month I wrote a post about how I hate November…well, at least this year, I have to take that back.  It was a beautiful , unseasonably warm month – with no snow until just this week. Awesome!

Here are some pics from a a mid-November morning walk in Wascana Park with just my iPhone in my pocket…

“what we do see depends mainly on what we look for”

“What we do see depends mainly on what we look for…In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.”

-John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live In

early evening walk around around Wascana Lake, September 2014

If we all saw what’s all around us in the same way, the world would be a pretty boring place.

 

 

 

 

early October sunset

A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air. -Eric Sloane
