This year's autumn in northern New Mexico has been beautiful and dramatic, and was extended by warmer than usual weather. But a strong storm currently ripping across the landscape from west to east is firing a closing salvo at the season with high winds and graupel/groppel in our neighborhood. Left in its wake is a gentle hush on the land, lovingly encouraging winter with white gloves.
Today's blog has what will be some of the final autumnal photographs I shoot this year - assorted still life images featuring graupel. It really sets the scene for some interesting abstract shots, including the one below with aspen leaves in water.
