36: Gloves needed

(Today’s cemetery shot:  Fallen.)

Brrrrrr!  Today I went out and stood between the sun and the moon.  The sun was at my back while I faced the moon, my body a barrier between the warmth of the light and the chill of the gusty winds.  It was an interesting contradiction.

(Watery sunlight.)

I wore my new winter hat for the first time.  Note to self:  If a winter hat is required, gloves are needed as well.  My fingers were numb with cold by the time I finished my outdoor explorations.

(Wind in the willow.)

The really gusty winds have finally arrived.  The cold wind is huffing and puffing and threatening to blow a house down.  It has a low-pitched sound to it, deep and strong.  The trees are all creaking and swaying, the remaining leaves taking off in a long flight, riding the wind to the wherever it goes.

(Today’s view of the pond.)

Stepping outside almost took my breath away.  It’s been a while since we’ve had a day this chilly and winds this strong.  It is exhilarating, energizing, skin-tingling kind of weather.

(View from the side of the pond.)

Since my morning walk, lake-effect clouds have started moving in.  Showers will probably accompany the clouds.  A little colder and we’d have our first snow.

(Dark clouds and skeletal trees.)

    Fallen… sad cemetery shot. I really like the last photo, “Dark clouds and skeletal trees.” Looks like we are finally headed into the cold.

    Just what was the temperature on that day? The picture of the pond looks inviting – hard to believe it was so blustery!

      It was in the upper 30’s, Karma. I think the pond tends to look more inviting during the cold months because the sky, when not clouded over, is so blue and pretty.
