All the glorious foliage has gone and things have taken on a monochrome muddy brown as winter approaches. Also the light is dimmer and days are shorter.
Looking for beauty in Nature is more challenging but it's still there if you look hard enough.
When I photograph Nature at this time of year, I don't feel the joyous feeling that I get in spring when the leaves pop out and everything is blossoming. Still, dying leaves have their own sad beauty.
The cycle of life continues on.
