November Colors

I was on the campus of Oregon State University this afternoon.  The school's colors are orange and black but yellow and brown seemed to be prominent today.  Below are more shots from the campus.

The cool crisp air and the autumn colors trigger an internal awareness that the holidays are fast approaching.  I hope you're being blessed with the peace and joy that the holidays bring.


  1. Lovely colours Mike, especially the second shot.

  2. Very pretty!
    Our evening walk takes us past some Ginkgo trees and they have a nice yellow blanket underneath them. I don't have a photo, but it's very pretty, and fun to shuffle through.

    That bike path looks slippery!

  3. Lovely in yellow! kinda funny - I took a shot with my boot in a pile of leaves the other day. I haven't posted it yet - but maybe I'll have to now!!

  4. Kari - that's neat about the Ginkgo trees. The path wasn't slippery but it did look that way. Wouldn't want the motorcycle on it - thank you!

    Stacey - yes, post it! Self inflicted boot shots are always good! Thank you.

  5. Love 'em. Fall is definitely in my top four favorite seasons to take pictures.

  6. J. LaRaine - I agree, fall is photogenic. Thank you!

  7. Just found your blog. I love your photography, interesting and diverse. I especially love the second image in this series. I like the composition with the tiny ribbon on green showing in the background. Very well done. I love to see what other photographers see. I am now 'following' you and will visit again soon, and I invite you to visit me too!!

  8. Karen,
    Thank you for your kind words and for stopping by. I visited your blog and really like your photography! Keep up the good work!
