Late Autumn – Early Winter on the Konza Prairie
For this week’s photography challenge, I headed out to the Konza Prairie after breakfast. I was captivated by this one ashen white tree. Notice also the moss colored tree just in front and to the right of it. Upon close inspection, there really were so many subtle colors to be seen.
The evergreens covered with berries reminded me of Christmas.
It was a heavy sky, but just a little too warm to snow. All that fell were a few sprinkles of cold rain.
Quite a few trees were covered with moss. It made them look bundled up for the cold.
This pair of trees seemed ready for winter to be over and it has hardly begun.
What a pleasant surprise every now and then to run into some brightly-colored berries.
But then I would look at the woods, so ominous-looking, and I was happy to head home for a cup of hot tea.
This is lovely, Laurie. I am particularly fond of that trunk 🙂
Thank you, Paula.

What great little pops of color — I think that’s the best part of going out with camera in hand. It often helps you to pause and look at the little details. ~ Kat
You are so right. Thanks for the note, Kat : )
Very nice! I lived briefly (3 years) in the midwest. I loved fall and winter, but hated spring (tornados!).
I love spring, but never tornados. I don’t understand how anyone can “chase” them.
Gorgeous photos, Laurie!
Thank you, Anne.
very gentle & very beautiful
Thank you. I am pleased that you appreciated the photos!
Beautiful! As much as I enjoy living in Texas, images like this make me miss the Midwest this time of year. I especially love the shot of the berries on the evergreen!
Thank you, Kenley. The evergreens always seem out of place to me on the prairie and yet I am always happy to see them there.
Wonderful photos, as always Laurie!
Thank you, Jewels! It is such a dreary day, I wasn’t sure that people would like the photos … but I hoped so : )
Thank you, Jewels. You are always so kind in your comments!
