One of the driving forces for relocating to the pacific northwest several years ago was to make a concerted effort to be more connected to “the outdoors.”
I have since then made a concerted effort to as often as I am able capitalize on the opportunities we have here, particularly in my very own back yard.
This morning while walking our dog I managed to capture some stunning displays of nature and the transformation of the landscape as we enter winter.
For example the photo I managed to capture here where I thought I was simply taking a photo of a purple fungi until I noticed it moving!
Later, I stumbled upon a very tiny reservoir of water that some amphibian has in short order turned into a nursery!
Last but not least, I did not have to go very far to capture some amazing moss taking hold of some nursery trees, which made for a beautiful cover of countless stumps.
