My World Tuesday: After the Fall, November

Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

This was my dim view from a lean-to at White Memorial Nature Center in Litchfield, Connecticut, on Saturday. We sat and enjoyed our lunch and took in the wet, grey midday atmosphere. This is New England after the fall. Call it November: cold, damp, and grey yet strangely bright and open and lively. An acquired taste? Maybe. I think I was born with it, though; I can't imagine being anywhere else this time of year.

    I think I would be happy with the cold the damp and the grey. After all, cloudy foggy days are when I'm most happy.

    Oh I love the shot below, from your previous post. I would love to have that hanging in my office.

  2. Your photo could have been taken here. I like the composition! The mist and the wet look beautiful in it. I have to admit I get used to and even grow to like autumn each year again, but it is a process of acclimatization that has to rebegin over and over after each summer. Summer just makes me feel at home. Winter I endure, sometimes with admiration.

  3. Your photos are as gorgeous as ever. I loved foggy days in the midwest because it looked so mysterious. We're just getting rain here in Hawaii. I wish we could share it with California.

    What a great 'mood capture' this is. Love the angle of the shot, and the pine needles on the wet bench. Perfect.

  10. Oh yes, it looks great! If it does not last too long, I also love those wet and foggy days!

  11. Wet foggy days, no good for my hair but terrfic for atmospheric photography.

  12. Your composition is cleverly done. I like this photo. Personally I prefer the dry sunny Fall days of the Southwest, but your fog and wet has a beauty all it's own. :)

  13. Sandy: If the photo was in Ohio it would have been covered with snow. We are already into freezing weather today.

    I noticed someone else saying your photo could have been taken where they live. Same here. It was wet and most of the leaves have fallen. I love this time of year.

    Interesting! Gives me the shivers, though! :)

  16. the composition is wonderful as is the detail, you can really see how wet the bench is! November indeed!

  17. So true that is a typical New England scene. I can't imagine being anywhere else either but your picnic table still makes me sad and wishing for those summer picnics.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Amazing how suddenly the trees lost their leaves...And our woods look just like that!

    ReplyDelete
  19. It does look like a great place for a picnic! :)

  20. We had a rainstorm last Wednesday and it took most of the leaves because there was a howling wind with it. Now we are enjoying sunshine until Thursday again.

    I like photos like that but I can't imagine eating on a wet picnic bench so hope you ate in the car and then went for a walk.

  21. The atmosphere well captured in the words and shot.

  22. wow do you have alot of comments. like your photo very much. it has character and interest, lots of texture and feelings. weather does affect us a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I feel the same way about "my" world. It is getting more and more grey and wet and dreary but today I enjoyed an odd warm and sunny day! Love your shot! :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think the reason I love your photographs so much is that they highlight the texture in you... in the way you look at life. They put me in a very cerebral/spiritual state as I ponder the thoughts you might have had when you took them

  25. What a charming photograph, Sandy. It must be beautiful to have a picnic there, notwithstanding the dampness.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Very beautiful time of the year. Although we do not have four seasons, when I travelled, I love to travel during autumn.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Even when the dampness gets us down, we can still breath in life.
    An important message.

  28. I can just imagine it. It's more of a cleansing rain with cool air? You obviously love your corner of Planet Earth.

  29. What an eye--I am envious of your talent!

  30. I think New England is not so much a love affair as an addiction. Once you have experienced an autumn/winter there, you are hooked for life, as I am.
    Great fog and other shots below too.

  31. I think it is passed down from our ancestors. New England is also in my blood. Great photo, it does capture November.

  32. I love the wetness...

    Beautiful shot. It's the same over here, but I don't really appreciate it though. In a photo yes, but not in real life :-)

  39. Sounds similar to our weather here in Michigan a few weeks ago. Now there is snow on the ground and we are expecting more. There's nothing more beautiful then the first snow of the season. I wish I had taken a picture.

    Perfect description, Sandy. I find this weather enjoyable in November, but I confess to getting tired of it by March.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Much, much better to be cold, damp and grey in New England than hot, dry and red as the fires burning along the coast.

    You take very nice photos and I like your thougts that go with the photos.

  42. An Autumn romantic view!

  43. Sandy, how this image brings back memories for me. I am so far from that gray, wet place now. I love my sunny world, but sometimes I do miss New England!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is like where I spent most of my life. I didn't mind it then. Now My World is sunny, and day after day of grey might get to me, but I would probably get used to it again. It is amazing how bright it is, however, in it's dreariness.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That looks exactly like my world! Nothing wrong with grey afternoon atmosphere.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Lovely write up about the November season on your part of the world, thats the perfect photo to show it too!

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is my favorite!! I love everything about it. It soothes my soul!!:-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. New-England looks like many areas here in France. We have dampness here, too, it makes part of the charm. And the smell of this wet place ? !
