Default Fall to winter in 48 hours!

I took the first three photos on Sunday afternoon/evening--a lovely day with minimal wind, blue Kansas skies and 65 degree weather.
The second two are from last night, about 9PM, after a day in the 40s, strong north winds and 3+ inches of rain that turned to snow when the temperature dropped below freezing and then the snow came down. We got almost 2 inches. It's all melted now, but what an introduction to winter!

Not nice to mess with mother nature..! Brrrrrr.

I like the second and third a lot. Calm silhouettes

Just one tip Angie, if you don't mind. When taking photos of things, ducks, cars, planes. Always leave more room in front than behind, gives the perception of having somewhere to go.
Or am I just weird......

Nice pictures, well done.
Here no snow yet and it's also pretty warm and sunny for being november.
Climat seems to do weird things.

What a contrasting series of weather conditions that you have captured. And I have to agree that #2 is an outstanding shot: well composed with great colors. Definitely something that you may consider framing. It also would make a nice wallpaper background for your computer. Well done Angie.

Gary-I like your hint, but I couldn't leave more room in front of these geese--they were only about 2 feet in front of me as they foraged for supper along the shore of Milford Lake. At one point I could almost touch them, they pretty much ignored me.

Thanks for the appreciation of the "dead tree limb" shot. I must have taken 20 shots of that from different angles, closer and further away, over a period of 15-20 minutes as the sunset advanced. This was the result I like the best. My friend had me print a copy and she is doing an acrylic oil painting of it for an art class she is taking.
