Much-needed colour!

Much-needed colour! 

Just adding one photo this morning, after posting 13 extra photos last night! I wasn't going to post any, but after looking at the endless, colourless "winter" images I've been uploading, colour was something that was definitely needed. Yesterday and overnight, we had more snow and this morning we have freezing fog. Our temperature is -3C (windchill -9C). The norm for now is a balmy PLUS 14C. Wednesday 17 October is forecast to reach PLUS 15C! Yay!

My thoughts are with the millions of people living down in the SE of the US, about to face the extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane, Michael. Things like snow and cold are absolutely nothing compared to what so many people have to deal with!

My rough plans for 29 September 2018 changed when I saw the weather forecast. I ended up visiting the Reader Rock Garden instead of driving to a different garden. As usual when I go there, it was a bit windy, which always makes photographing flowers, especially ones on long stems, more difficult. It was also overcast and I was hoping that it wouldn't rain. Instead, I found myself standing at the highest point of the garden, with very light snow falling for just a few minutes.

There were still quite a few flowers in bloom, though many were already past their prime. I was glad to find this Echinacea flower stilll looking reasonably good. A touch of filter was added in post-processing to add a bit of sharpness.
