Looking for Color


More and more trees are bare, but a few clutch remaining foliage. A patch of cherry orchard gold glows against leafless dark woods near our home, holding winter at bay.


In Northport this morning, wrinkled crabapples against a bright blue sky sounded another colorful note.

At day's end, the sky over Lake Michigan was subtle, and as darkness fell I turned to the magic words of James Joyce to color my evening.

You can probably tell that I altered the first and second images. Can't remember if I did more than crop the third....

Looking for color..yes. and isn't interesting how even muted colors start to stand out against the gray background? I was marveling about the yellow grasses today. They looked exquisite.

"Wherever we look, there's something to see!" a recent first-time visitor to Leelanau commented. But the same is true everywhere, isn't it?
