What nice weather we had here in Quebec these past two weeks. I often went for walks in the woods with my little Winny who really enjoys being off leash to run freely and discover all the hidden smells. But what makes him happiest is when he comes upon a ruffed grouse and scares it into flight. He then gets very excited !
During these walks I realized that the landscape in november, even if the trees are now bare, is as beautiful as october, so popular for all it’s bold colours. In november, oranges, browns, burgundies, greens and the so luminous pale beige of grasses, evoking the fields of wheat in summer, are a real feast for the eye. For me, these combined colors are like the perfect brush strokes of a painter on his canvas. Here are a few pictures I took.
On one of these walks, upon our arrival at the trail we were greeted by four black-capped chickadee. They were curious about us and jumped from tree to tree to get closer. These birds are not afraid at all of humans and it was as if they were really greeting us.
To end this post beautifully here is a picture of the Famine river. It is close to where I live and I took this shot this afternoon on the bridge of the future highway. I think it’s a really beautiful picture ! It is worth clicking on it to view it larger.
I hope the weather will be nice this week too so we can go back to the woods, but I’ll have to be careful for it is hunting season right now.
I wish you all a nice week, and don’t forget to take a moment to look around you and notice all the different hues, even the subtle ones, of november.
