Layers of color in a layered land. Northern Colorado near the Wyoming Border.
The earth breathing out as the afternoon light shines on the Firehole River.
October light brightens the morning as a Red Winged Blackbird perches in a bush of golden leaves. The leaves were falling just as fast as the colors were fading from the wings of this beautiful bird.
The October clouds just seem to move faster, get bigger and always seem just a bit darker. A time between the bluebird skies of summer and the socked-in days of winter. A little of each yet nothing like either.
October clouds reflected in the Lamar Valley.
Happy Friday and a good weekend to all.
Spending time watching the clouds and light change on at Iron Spring Creek. Autumn grass and sky were on display and ever changing just as the weather was that day.
While looking south the clouds filled then left the sky to various degree in just 15 minutes time.
Then turning to look north the sky was gray and filled with soft clouds…
…but within 15 minutes a bit of blue filled the sky and color filled the landscape at Iron Spring Creek on this early October day.
A ponderosa pine strong and silent sits high upon the Blacktail Plateau.
Welcome to October.
Dramatic skies contrast with gentle golden grasses whispering change is on the way.
