Looking like panes of broken glass, the thin ice that formed overnight was piled on the shore by this morning’s wind action.
The ice is moving away from the shore leaving water in its place.
The black colour shows that it’s getting rotten.
One more week perhaps.
Saint Joseph’s on the shore of Lake Nipissing.
Warm temperatures and ice combine to make a surreal scene.
Sumac leaves turn the most gorgeous red in the fall. The seed pods are also a deep red. It seems that red and sumac go together.
Against a white background, they stand out even better!
The bush near our place is a very pleasant place to be these days.
Quiet, tranquil and cold enough to make one aware.

Yesterday I made another photograph of it covered in snow. Just for fun I applied some different filters to produce this result.
Northern Ontario art?

Tomorrow we begin climbing back up the year into light.
A lot of photographers put their cameras away on a gray day like today.

HERE are some more photos made this morning.
The leaves have nearly all fallen and the colour is leaving the bush.
Now we wait for snow.
People are ready to help.
Flat calm, warm, unusual Thanksgiving Weekend weather. Fall is here in spades!
Most cottage owners have gone back to the city. They will feel badly that they are missing this.
It’s not as big as a sunflower but it is a relative and a bunch of them are just as sunny.
Getting ready for the long dark days of November.
Fog on One Mile Bay Sunday morning.
Another lousy day in paradise!
