A hint of Winter

November 1, 2010

It was around 5.30pm and  I was driving to town. The sun was highlighting the pasture and the cows, the last rays of a beautiful but chilly autumnal day. I just had to stop and take a picture of two Seasons that were overlapping. Snow had fallen on the Prealpes mountains and the sight was enchanting. Could it be that Winter is at the door ? A bit too soon for me…

    …Winter? No, no, not yet!

  2. It looks like it was a beautiful day. I love the snowy mountains in the distance.
    The quote is beautiful, too!

    (Your post title is VERY similar to what I have scheduled for tomorrow 🙂 )

    A beautiful view over this landscape with fine contrasts between the warm colored field, cows and trees – and the cold mountains and sky.

  4. I know, me too! Seems that Fall was very short this year.

    I think the cows have the right idea. Graze in the sunlight now. Soon enough it will be time to huddle together, tails to the wind, and dream winter dreams.
