    The true evidence of Mother Nature!

    A beautiful picture because it is so perfectly composed, and the colors so complementary to one another!

    Beautiful scene.

  7. What, you’re not buried in snow? It’s raining today, but we totally covered in the white stuff. 🙂

  8. Robin says:

    That says it all, doesn’t it? 🙂 I love the golden color of the grasses and the contrasts with the bare trees and the evergreens. Beautiful, Eliza. 🙂

  9. Mz&Cho says:

    So so relaxing and so so silent. Beautiful!

  10. Kathy Sturr says:

    Beautiful! This actually reminds me of wild Florida.

  11. Joanna says:

    What a beautiful, quiet place. Your snow is gone already? Ahh, looks like November there! 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Joanna. This photo was taken before… there are still a couple of inches on the ground, slowly melting. Fun while it lasted, giving us some holiday spirit. 😉

    A breath of fresh air and peace as I look at this nature vista, Eliza. Thanks so much.

    It’s those expressive limbs reaching up beyond the green tree line that held my eye. Not sure why, or what to make of the scene, and if you kept silent in order to better hear a message (I keep listening for one almost everywhere..)

  14. Irene says:

    Love this scene, Eliza. ❤️

  15. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Our colours are very similar at the moment!

    Thoughtful composition, Eliza. Colors are great – burnished grasses indeed- and the flashes of scarlet (Winterberries?), and then the haunting look of mature trees with their roots drowned by the wetlands. I’m never sure how I feel when I see that.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Peter. Wetlands always get my vote. They are so full of life, even the dead tree snags provide homesites and food for birds and insects. A peaceful place (except when the hunters come through).

  17. Kris P says:

    Your scenery is beautiful in every season, Eliza.

  18. Trini Lind says:

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! 😍😍😍

    What a beautiful field–and those tiny bits of red give it a bit more flare!

  20. Jane Lurie says:

    Your image definitely conveys nature’s serenity, Eliza. Lovely. I’m curious– what are those little bits of red?

  21. naturebackin says:

    Although the golden grasses catch the eye it is interesting to see the greys of the bare trees mingled with the green of trees that retain their leaves in the forest. Interesting contrasts. Am trying to imagine it all sprinkled with snow. Keep warm! (Its been 30 C plus here in our region of South Africa the past few days.)

  22. I really, really like the November landscape, and your lovely photo illustrates why.

  23. Wonderful photo, love how you captured the beautiful grass and bare trees leading to the woods!🙂

  24. ladyfi says:

    Such peaceful gold!

  25. Very unusual composition, Eliza. I absolutely LOVE this! Thank you!

  26. Wonderful photo Eliza, I love the ribbons of colour.

  27. Pretty light and colors!

    I love the colors!
