I have recently begun to think more about sharing my experiences driving through the rural Waterloo region, and all that I see and reflect upon.
In the past I haven't felt motivated to post a blog unless I take an "exceptional" photo. Ah, how perfectionism and the fear of criticism can get in the way of sharing.... :-/
Lately however I have been thinking I should post anyhow if I have something I want to show or share.
One of the things I love about rural driving is that I get to see the slow transition of colours from season to season. We all love the full blown colours of fall but I find the migration from orange and red to November's silvers and browns equally beautiful. And late fall into winter, and so on.
I think the reduction of colour makes me more aware of which colours do exist.
Here is a photo of a "roadscape" (I just made that up I think) :-) This is in Cambridge off highway 97.
Notice the colours are subtle here... try to name the colour of the trees! To me it's brown/ rust/ remnants of orange/ and (?). The sun picks up the slightest bit of yellow. Here is another view, turning left. Isn't it lovely in its own quiet way?
Then just for fun I extracted several of the colours and put them together - check this out:
Isn't it lovely?!
I hope you enjoyed looking this over.
More photos and thoughts going forward!
