Nova Scotia skies often delight and sometimes astonish me, like this one did. The valley landscape with the low, understated mountains in the distance are the perfect foil to this drama. Have a lovely week ahead, friends.
Thanks to Nova Scotia Weather Guy Jim Abraham on Mastodon for telling me the name of the cloud formation is probably cirrocumulus.
Our fields will soon be covered with snow, so this scene can serve to remind me of the lovely light of an early fall day. The morning sun highlighted those tufts of grasses left by the mower so beautifully that they look almost like old-fashioned hay ricks left to dry. Have a lovely day, friends, enjoy the sunshine in your lives whenever you find it.
Hello friends. I know what you might be thinking: “It’s November, it’s Nova Scotia and Ellie hasn’t yet made a post showing our lovely autumn leaves.” There’s a good reason for that, though. This year has not been the greatest for showy displays. That being the case, I have found this lovely one from a few years ago. This is a woodland not far from here, but you won’t find it easily. It’s reached by a dirt road that looks as if it’s going nowhere interesting. Then, you find it, a place where eagles congregate and, no doubt, foxes, possibly coyotes and certainly raccoons rear their young in as much safety as their world provides. The undergrowth is thick and dense and, quite suddenly you come across a clearing with these gorgeous birch trees and glimpses of colour deeper in, should you decide to penetrate the forest. I hope this satisfies your craving for fall colours, but, if this isn’t enough…. The landscape gallery featuring this photo is here and there you’ll see lots more photographs of fall colours.
There is little enough peace in the world, so we appreciate the calm moments that we’re so fortunate to experience here. I’m very happy to share this one with you all. Our beach walks in Nova Scotia always seem to ground us and remind us of the beautiful natural elements that are always there, despite all the chaos that we see in the news and social media.
Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you are doing, friends.
